Here's what some of the previous crew says:
"I always had the dream to go sailing one day, so I signed up and joined the Ocean Nomads Community. From that moment everything escalated quickly. One week sailing turned into 1,5 months and together with some other Ocean Nomads we sailed from Northern Spain to the Canarie. I fell in love with the sailing lifestyle and I knew I wanted to get my own sailboat. A lot has happened since then. In short, I bought an old sailboat of a new Ocean Nomads Friend. Without joining Ocean Nomads, I would not be where I am now." Nadiem"
“It was the best week of my life.” – Alexandre (Crew Sicily 2018)
“I learned so much when I joined the fleet! I hitch-sailed from Italy to Fiji after that!” – Pim – (Crew Sicily 2018)
"In my opinion, sailing adventures organized by Captain Suzanne are: 1. A reward for the senses by discovering incredibly beautiful places and breathtaking sceneries. 2. An unbeatable way to get introduced into the nice world of sailing, 3. An open window to learn watching our world and the people from another more conscious perspective. I see her as an inspirational person who, with her example, inspire others with ideas and proposals to define or redefine life projects and use inner energy for more noble purposes.
Please gather support in every possible way at your hand for Suzanne. Our oceans need strong committed people like her to advocate for our natural resources and leave them intact for the generations to come." Jose - Sicily Crew 2018
"She has a deep love for the sea and she is helping others to experience the same. It was an amazing experience to sail with her. She constantly inspired us to explore, to test things out and enjoy her little surprises along the way.
I highly recommend to sail with her and was always feeling safe with her at the helm." Matthias - Sicily Crew 2018
“The most unforgettable week. The trip preparation and the crew members turned what would otherwise be an adventure into something a bit more special. I took part in the Lanzarote sailing week earlier in the year. To say it was life changing sounds dramatic but it really was. Being able to share time and experiences with people with different backgrounds but of a similar mindset was incredible. I like to think that I can have and help contribute to a similar experience for myself and others as a member of the Flotilla crew.” – Ben ( Lanzarote Crew 2019)
