Join our Pirate Ship

Change of plans, because of the current virus and global lockdown some crew members changed their plans and now we have some bunks open. Over the next couple of weeks, we will stay in Algarve, southern Portugal. We will monitor the situation and see some more of Europe if the borders are opening up. We will monitor the world crisis hopefully later in the year sail south to the Americas. We have room for a crew of 8-14 people With our concept of LIVE - LEARN - SAIL we are living together like a family, sharing skills, working on the boat together and having a nice party once in a while. Joining our project involves hard work, creative ideas, and teamwork. Together we will grow and overcome the obstacles that repairing the boat or sailing might bring. This is not a Caribbean cruise vacation, this is something you'll learn from and remember for the rest of your life along with making new friends and experiencing something few people have a chance to do. This is not a 2 or 3 weeks sailing trip, it is an ongoing sailing project you're welcome to come and spend what time you can and are always welcome back later.

One of the richest experience of my life


Jumping on Labora was my first actual sailing experience, and I can say those two months were one of the richest experience of my life. From learning how to sail on a piece of history, to maintaining / repairing / improving this old lady by working on wood / metal / plumbing / electronics and from 16m high on the top mast to -2m under water... You actually learn how to use your both hands and your brain. Dave really challenges you to open your eyes and think. But the best for me is the freedom Dave gives to the crew for choosing what project to work on and then the responsibility on to doing it. All that with a changing crew that makes the experience interesting by living with a lot of different people, some having a lot of experience to share and a huge among of energy for the others. Thank you Dave for this opportunity, I'll be back !
