Fresh water 300 L
3 beds for 3 couples (which 2 have own cabin separated by a curtain)

"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!

The sailing weekend with Jasper and Keiju was great! Jasper is an excellent skipper and even better teacher. He was very patient with us and arranged the sailing so that we could practise as much as possible. It was a lot of fun and we felt safe all the time. Keiju cooked excellent food for us and it was lovely to chat with her! Jasper and Keiju's boat felt like home for us in the time spent there. We strongly recommend the experience and we hope to have the chance to sail with them again.
Jasper A Jasper A Thank you so much also, we definitely love to share sailing and teach, and love to have peole on board who are eager to learn and participate!:) next time we're ready to go further and maybe reach far-away destinations at the National Park also (outer archipelago). Waiting to see you both again:) -J&K
