THINGS YOU NEED
- Good outdoor-clothing (and sunglasses)
- Positive, curious mind;)
Winter-sailing, late- & early seasons: full-proof clothing and gloves are essential! More details here: https://artsailtraining.org/cold-check-list/
Turku (Finland) and the archipelago waters around.
Between approx. 20.6.-31.8. Day trips and trips form Turku will be slightly more expensive. That time we suggest some close-by harbour as Nauvo (reachable in 1-2 hours by car or buss). For over-night trips this option is handsome! Do not hesitate to ask if questions arise!
What makes our trips special? We photograph each our trip. We teach & share. We sail & train with you. "You don't buy experience from us, but with us."
HALF DAY TRIP - Try out or have a Business meeting at the sea!

Delicious food provided by all participants (including you), or order delicious meals for your all-relaxed day (additional prize - provided by ship's Master cook)! Please note our "house-rules" below; we serve delicious vegetarian and do not wish meat on board.
We're passionate to teach and learn. No better deal for try-out sail-learning are within these waters!

FULL-DAY PICNIC - Great for Groups 'n Parties!
Visit Vepsä for fire, sauna, food or other things in the day and come back in the evening. 8-12 hours sailing expedition. Geo-catching, swimming, frisbee-golf, nature path, land-scapes... Vepsä's full of possibilities! 3-5 hours exploring the island, rest on sails, everybody bring the food, 2-10 people. Prize starting at 800e
WEEKEND TRIPS & OVERNIGHT
2-4 people in 2 beds, one bed in lounge, one in cabin separated by curtain.
The boat does not offer luxuries, but merely an interesting experience for eager adventurers and bag-backers.
There will be interesting destinations to go, both by desert islands, anchorages and harbours with services around.
Many islands are full of stories, history, nature trails, ruins... etc. Destinations with suitable services on land: Seili, Pähkinäinen, Maisaari and Iniö. Destinations with ruins and historic stories: Ahvensaari (and Seili for stories). Destinations with naked swimming: all desert islands!
It all depends on the season, your wishes and destinations. We can make it for 250e/every starting day, but this means there is no food, harbour fees (approx. 25e/night), etc included in the prize (they will be shared separately as they arise), and that we mainly sail according to our own plan, not your schedule. 500e /day and we follow you (almost) anywhere.
In any case, you will always be part of the CREW of the vessel. This means there are certain tasks and duties in the everyday life on board and sailing. Day trips are much excluded from this, but overnight trips include always certain daily work and participation to tasks on board, no matter what the prize. This is necessity for running the vessel safely and efficiently when cruising with crew more than a day.
NO MONEY but still up to join?

FACILITIES ON BOARD
Yes, there is a toilet, and fresh water (drinkable water) on board. There are 3 beds for 6 people (which 2 for 4 visitor-crews). There are limited electricity use (12V). Fresh water allowance 300l allows 5l / person / day to consume for all needs during overnight trips. Due extremely limited toilet tank capacity, toilet will be restricted to use during overnight trips if facilities or any on-land possibilities (as nature) are there to use.
We follow ZERO WASTE -waste management system: you gather your own thrash on board and recycle them after sailing. This do nothing but makes our life easier, and maybe helps us all to reduce the amount of no-needed thrash items.
"On boat we live much like when hiking in nature: no extra facilities, if any!"
When we're sailing alone or timelessly with our crew, we love to take time to explore, swim and exercise (meditation, yoga and martial arts) on land.
REQUESTS should contain the following info:
- Approx. length of travel (day, full day, or number of nights)
- Who will join? (number and relation of people)
-> If you are only a few, may we invite people to join to make it "full-boat, full-fun"?
- Any additional questions, special wishes etc. you may have
- Do you want to join a "trip messaging list" so we can inform you on suitable possibilities in the future for you?

S/Y FAREATA - BOAT DETAILS
Sailing suits for all, and no experience is needed at all. However, please provide us with your health & safety details here as soon as confirmation of a trip has taken place:
Each trip is piloted under Master Mariner educated Sea Captain (Jasper Armanto) and often (and whenever needed) his assistant cook / deck hand (very often his dear-lovely wife). Together they make any team strong, sailing safe and reliable.
Sailing is perfect way to share time together, learn new skills (such as knots and navigation), and just to relax - getting out of the Office. For another kind of active day - Sailing will be definitely fun & refreshing!
WHAT TO BRING
Good attitude with positive mind! <- this is the key for good experience & learning. Regarding waterbottle, sunglasses and clothing, see detailed info here:
Mainly all trips follow "everybody bring food along for common table" -principle. This make cooking much easy and fun - and it ensures no stomach is left hungry. Fast-to-eat snacks are always good at the sea furthermore. However, "full-service-tables" by our ship's great cook can be served for business meetings, please ask for the option!
On boat we follow vegetarian. So we wish no meat would be brought on boat. If meat however is necessity for you, you may bring something that does not need to be cooked in the boat's kitchen.
WHAT ELSE TO KNOW?
That's basically it, but let's make sure you know the heading. Here we have in summary our "house-rules" - mandatory to comply, if you wish to step on board!
We wish warm days and windy seas!
