In the same boat

The 64 foot (20 m) sailing yacht "Sheba Queen" will sail along the Norwegian coast to live of the sea, to do reasearch about microplastic in the ocean and to clean parts of the coast for plastrubbish.

With simple equipment for freediving we will catch fish, shellfish and more, supplemented by food and resources from the land. The crew also have to use some money for the food we buy, but if we get enough sponsors it will be 100 prosent for free.

As crew on the boat, you will help to sail and steer the ship. You will help cooking, take part in fishing and gathering, help out with cleaning and general maintenance of the boat. When we have time, we go mountain-hiking, seakayak and freediving/spearfishing.


Minimum stay onboard is four weeks, so you learn how to be useful on the ship.


We start 1. April 2018, and are sailing until 1.of October same year.

Parts of this winter, a young female helper and I would like help and company in gardening, house- and boat maintenance, daily household, and more. Not the least USING the garden, house, boats and the nature on this beautiful shore of The North Sea! :-)

You and the other helper(s) must share one of my two guest rooms some nights, when I have other guests.

My home is on rural Tofterøy island; 40 km south-west of Bergen. Wild and beautiful nature. Great for hiking and sea experiences.
Bus connections to Bergen and the airport (BGO).

The short video below, is from Tofta bay, just beneath my house, and the close surroundings. It shows mainly what we can see from my house and garden. :-)

My work capacity is unfortunately rather low now. I provide the tools and instructions you need, but you’ll be relatively independent in your work. You and the other helper(s) must to a large degree structure your time yourselves. Do the work almost whenever you want. :-)

I am happy ... more inside

Please read the text from 2016 (below) to get an impression of the project. And please note the following update:
In MAy and june 2018 we are taking care of an old timberlog barn! You are welcome to join!
:::::::


A 300-year old timberhouse in good condition is threatened to be destroyed. We have started preperations to move it to another place to rescue this nice culutural heritage building.
I am a building engineer specialized in old buildings. I want to restore this house, which I do in my spare time and holidays for the sake of the house.
Working with this house is fun because you learn so much about how they built wooden houses in former times. And of course it is hard work.
This 'work away' is for people who want to get to know timber houses „from the inside“, who are interested in wood works.
No experience is necessary but of course the help craves a bit body power, and it is really helpful if you have had a hammer in your hands before and are not afraid of going ... more inside

We have 5 horses, a property where there is always something that should have been done and the best organic and environment friendly store in town (maybe in the whole country). In winter the most important task is taking care of the horses. This involves feeding and cleaning up after them, which can be hard work if the temperature is low and everything is frozen (they live outside).

We also try to grow a bit of vegetables, but nothing much. Still there is always some gardening to do. There are also numerous smaller and bigger things that always needs fixing so we are open to consider any special skills or interests you might have.

We are a small family consisting of two adults and our young son.

We hope to meet some friendly and interesting travelers. Our home is 20 minutes from Trondheim city centre, and if you wish to do some "city activities" that's no problem. You will stay in an separate apartment adjacent to our house, and have your own bathroom and kitchen.
