EXPERIENCE - LIFESTYLE - TRAVEL - PURPOSE - CONNECTION - NATURE Autumn 2021 we are sailing from the Netherlands to the Canary Islands onboard Twister, a classic 36 meter schooner originally built in 1902. A hands-on 1800 nautical miles voyage for life, together with a likeminded bunch of Ocean Nomads. We are a mix of entrepreneurs, alternative lifestyle seekers, self-sufficiency enthusiasts, and water sports fanatics. Driven by passion and purpose for the love of the ocean, we explore the exciting and natural ways to travel oceans and create regenerative lifestyles. We’ve tested Twisters sea worthiness, met the lovely owners, skipper, and mate, and experienced the performance and potential of this vessel. She’s beautiful. She’s fast. She’s solid. She’s big. She’s spacious. She’s super comfortable. She’s got soul. She lasts. We’re super excited to take her on an offshore voyage this autumn. This is not just an expedition you join for a few weeks and that's it. This is an experience that will change the way you approach life, nature and the ocean. We believe our expeditions are just the beginning for plotting the next course in your life. By jumping on board this voyage, you will also join our expanding global network of impact-driven travellers, ocean entrepreneurs, sailors, (free)divers, surfers, and active salty souls passionate about the ocean and eager to do good. It's the people who make the trip and we walk the extra mile to get a diverse but like-minded adventure spirited bunch together. Estimated sea time +/- two weeks. Depending on the weather, we'd love to make a stop somewhere for some extra exploration. This can be Madeira, Azores, Galicia, or some of the islands north of the Canaries like Isla Graciosa, Lanzarote, Lobos, Fuerteventura. We'll al have a say in this, but ruled by the weather. It's a hands-on trip and everyone is expected to join al duties on board. It's ok to not have sailing experience. We also take professional crew and we'll be teaching it all. Originally we planned to sail across the Atlantic. And maybe we still will if the situation allows. At any case, we can't wait for some serious sea time and we start with the sail from the Netherlands to the Canaries to just be connected to nothing but nature and an epic bunch of adventure seekers, lifestyle designers, ocean entrepreneurs, and eco-minded salty souls. Please note that to be able to do the trip a contribution is required. It's not cheap but it's really cheap for what you get and compared to anything similar out there. We just want to make it happen :) But we have no rich owner owning the boat here ;) Please read the description as well as our profile carefully to explore if it's for you. It'll answer most of your questions. If it's a hell yeah, we welcome your application! We'd love to chat with you on the phone to align expectations and see if we're a great fit. It's the people who make the trip :) Welcome on board! Team Ocean Nomads

Crew roles: You have a burning desire for exploration. You like to create, grow and do good. You live in, on or near the ocean to cultivate a conscious alternative active lifestyle, or desire to do so. You can’t be ‘boxed.’ You have a variety of interests with nature, health, simplicity, adventure and sustainability at the centre of it. The ocean is your home. Your playground. Your place to treasure, respect, and protect. The thought of leaving land for a few weeks excites you. You have a ‘can be done’ mindset. You have a team spirit. You don’t need to have sailing experience. We believe and have experienced that a positive mindset and active adaptive attitude is much more valuable. Our Captain and professional crew are happy teaching you the ropes. After some days at sea you can sail the ship yourself! You need to be physically and emotionally fit. You are happy to take part in the running of the ship which include night watching, cooking, cleaning, and hoisting heavy sails. This on an angle, and in all sorts of weather conditions. You don’t mind getting wet, or salty, and go for a while without a fresh water shower, or limited fresh foods.
