FACILITIES ON BOARD
Yes, there is a toilet, and fresh water (drinkable water) on board (however, when on land/harbor, toilet limited to use). There are 3 beds for 6 people (which 2 beds for 4 visitors). There are limited electricity to use (12V), but you can take your USB-charger for your phone in case. "The nature is our best facility" - it goes much like hiking in the bare nature otherwise by sanitary in desert islands:)
"On boat we live much like when hiking in nature: no extra facilities, if any!"
ZERO WASTE - we don't invest much on litter and don't gather it much from the crew on boat: you gather your own thrash (ie. papers from snacks) on board and recycle them after sailing (have your own "thrash bag" with). This makes life easier, and maybe helps us all to reduce the amount of no-needed thrash.
When we're sailing timelessly with our crew, we love to take time to explore, swim and exercise (meditation, yoga and martial arts) on land. You may any time to join these activities, or find your own!
