Watch: Welcome to Ocean Nomads
Offshore Sailing Delivery Canary Islands - Netherlands on 36 meter Classic Schooner
We are teaming up with SV Twister again, delivering here back, from the Canary Islands to the Netherlands, a classic 36 meter schooner originally built in 1902.
A hands-on 2000- nautical miles voyage, together with a bunch of Ocean adventurers.
About the trip
After a successful trip and team up with Twister autumn 2021 from the Netherlands to the Canary Islands (check the photos), we team up again for the delivery to her home country and facilitate ocean adventure.
On February 21, 2022 the Twister leaves Tenerife for a trip back home to Amsterdam. The boat sails in 3 – 4 weeks (depending on the wind) back to the Netherlands.
This is a hands-on active expedition. We have a professional captain and crew who’ll be showing you the ropes. You’ll have an active roll on board. Everyone on board is expected to take part in the running of the ship, including watch keeping, setting sails, cooking, provisioning, cleaning. It’s part of the experience.
This trip is a serious ocean adventure and some sea experience is required. It’s a great opportunity to make miles, experience a delivery, build your sailing CV, further develop seamanship skills and to get closer to undertaking deliveries on your own some day ?
"Still smiling at the memories! Met – and still talking to – some lovely people. Refreshed my nautical skills (helming, navigation, astro identification, etc.) Shared some great experiences through conversation, music, stories, yoga, cooking together, seeing ocean wildlife, and so much more! – Richard"
"The experience on twister with other Ocean Nomads was just really beautiful and I felt connected for the first time in decades, I felt part of a community and had companionship. I was so happy that it’s so all inclusive of gender race religion nationality and most importantly age. It has connected me with like-minded people of all ages and being very transformational personally because my life has been incredibly isolated as a single parent Who works from home. I can honestly say October and November I felt happy and free for the first time in maybe 22 years - Cay" (Expedition ON 2021)
"I always had the dream to go sailing one day. But, like many, I did not grow up with sailing and I thought it’s something for the very wealthy. Now, thanks to the Ocean Nomads, I know different..
Last summer I had my first sailing experience on an Ocean Nomad Sailing Trip in Spain. I initially signed up for one week, but ended up staying 1,5 months, and sailed as part of the crew from Northern Spain to the Canaries Islands. On this trip, I met a lot of like-minded people with similar goals and dreams. I also realized that it is possible to learn sailing in a low-key, affordable way. After this trip, I got so inspired that I decided to buy my own sailboat. After some research, I decided to buy a previous sailboat of an Ocean Nomad friend that I just met, and together we sailed the boat from Ireland to Spain. Thanks to him I gained enough confidence to continue on my own. Without Ocean Nomads this would not have been possible. So if you are slightly interested in sailing, the ocean, meeting like-minded people and perhaps want to join a sailing trip in the future, have a look into Ocean Nomads! - Nadiem
