Were a share cost ship that has been sailing since 2004.

The boat is an old school steel ketch, big, tall, wide, heavy, black, gnarly, full of character. She was abandoned for years in Hong Kong, bought for 1$, and has circumnavigated since with a crew of sea vagabonds.

The crew is usually composed of a healthy mix of nomadic wanderers and non-conforming individuals but anybody is welcome, regardless of nationality, age, gender, worldview, background, or financial status. Attitude is what matters.

In an effort to share, learn and grow, we take as crew anybody motivated to join with an open mind, a willingness to become part of the team and a deep craving for this lifestyle.

The boat is operated as a non profit cooperative. We run on limited funds from crew contribution and so were not a luxury yacht, yet the boat is sound and strong, especially after our recent extensive refit.

Somehow, because of our alternative lifestyle and eclectic past crew, plus a reputation g... more inside

We opened a small library in Madagascar as a part of one NGO. We can accommodate a volunteer who would be keeping the library open few days in a week (depending on school holidays etc). Holidays whenever asked for, volunteers do not have given hours. Accommodation provided, food provided by villagers for a small fee (10-15eur/month). Mostly children are visitors in the library (about 50) coming from close and far away villages. Volunteers are encouraged to do various activities with children, play games, teach them how to read, go to trips. I am a student who likes to open projects like this around the world. Further projects (e.g. electricity) are in progress and so volunteers can help with other projects as well.
Be aware - the living conditions in the village are very low (for Westerners) so there is no electricity (working on it!) and shower is only with buckets (in a closed rooms), cooking on fire etc. So please only people who know they can manage this should apply!
