Non-Consumer Based Cruising

PelagicNomad: Hey Pirates


I'm a minimalist who loves nature/water...and live aboard my gaff rigged Westsail 33 "Panthalassa" which I wouldn't trade for the world!

Never a fan of mindless gadgetry/consumerism/the throwaway society...my non-consumer based philosophy is evolving from books such as Seaworthiness; The Forgotten Factor, Voyaging On A Small Income, Sailing The Farm (downloadable in PDF for free), The Sailmaker's Apprentice, and a handful of other thinking nonconformists... The common theme is a functional, practical, simple and self-reliant approach, overwhelmingly crediting old/ancient designs, constructed with modern materials!

Also, where practicable, I'd like to stock the boat by bartering for organic, locally grown produce... And I dream about developing all things non-consumer based cruising as a group... To keep things simple/achievable...I'd like to start by working through the practical tasks in Sailing The Farm and The Sailmaker's Apprentice, and see where it goes...

Ok, so a little more about these books:

"Seaworthiness; The Forgotten Factor" by naval architect Czeslaw Marchaj compares modern boat design with those more than a hundred years old. In particular, he praises an 1894 North Sea rescue boat, designed by Colin Archer - which my boat is a fibreglass derivative of.

"Voyaging On A Small Income" by Annie Hill is about non-consumer based cruising - having no fridge, eating beans, celestial navigation, and combining old/ancient concepts with modern materials. A couple started with basically nothing at the age of 18, owned/voyaged on a couple of boats, developed a ruthless "cost vs benefit analysis" built their dream boat, and retired by the age of 28 in the early eighties, with enough finance invested to return 1,300 pounds pa, which they both lived off.

Sailing The Farm, by Ken Neumeyer is about "Seasteading":
"With a couple of hundred pounds of seeds, a few dried fruits and a solar still for fresh water, a family could sail around the world without ever having to make that long upwind tack to the grocery store for manufactured products shipped from half a world away."

This dude also teaches us to ditch refrigeration and make/use all kinds of simple, funky tools. The idea is, go organic, buy, forage, and/or grow food on an island... Dehydrate it to store efficiently. Aboard, grow a herb garden, wheatgrass and spirulina, while seeds are sprouted and eaten live. Eat seaweed. Make cheese, yoghurt, milkshakes, dips...with powdered milk. Rehydrate and juice dried fruits/berries. Grind grain and prepare all your food from scratch, daily, without removing or killing the goodness...

Emiliano Marino's family come from a long line of prominent seafarers. He understands traditional boats/handmade sails/real seamanship, and the value of a holistic approach... Entering a market where everything is designed to break, kinda broke his heart... So he wrote a practical guide to encourage self-reliance, called "The Sailmaker's Apprentice"

"I am still, fifteen years later, angered by the hype and ethics of the production sailmaking industry, and morn the general loss of traditional skill and artistry in sailmaking. Furthermore, I deplore a wasteful, thrill-seeking, exploitative economy of sails and sailing, so lacking in foresight except where making a bigger, faster buck is concerned".

Sailing South from San Francisco

Crew wanted: Competent Crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:37 f
Location: United States
Destination: Mexico
Logged in: 14 minutes ago

boeland: Hello Sailor,
I am 69, retired and planning to leisurely sail my boat from San Francisco Bay to Mexico and beyond. I have little experience of the ocean but have sailed the San Francisco Bay for a few years with a few ocean outings.
I'd like to find crew, experienced or not, interested in sailing down the California coast and into the Sea of Cortez for pleasure. Planning to leave San Francisco in late October/early November 2017. I have no firm plans for the voyage after this but would eventually like to sail to the Pacific islands.

From London to Spain / Portugal

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:30 f
Location: United Kingdom
Destination: None
Logged in: 18 minutes ago

nt57: Hello good people!

Sometime in July or early August I'll take my yacht from London, head along the UK south coast, hop across the Channel, and then either straight across the Bay of Biscay, or take a slower route following the French and Spanish coasts (depending on time mostly, but probably I'll go straight across Biscay).

My aim is to get to Portugal later this year, probably hang around there for a while with some trips to Gibraltar, Spain etc, and then next year... Well, see what happens.

I've lived and worked in many different countries as a scuba instructor, and my plan is to keep that life style going. I love exploring new places, meeting all sorts of people, and just seeing what's out there. I now work remotely, so I can sail pretty much freely.

I'm looking for crew with a similar mindset: adventurous, fun, and interested in seeing the world. Your sailing experience is less important than your willingness to learn, get involved in the tasks onboard, and get your hands dirty.

We'll share any costs onboard - food, moorings, fuel etc., although I plan to keep things as cheap as possible!

So send over a message if you'd like to join me on any or all of the trip.
