2500 NAUTIC MILES,
25 YOUNG CREW MEMBERS
5 CONTINENTS VOICED,
1 GLOBAL MESSAGE:
"WE'RE ALL IN THE SAME BOAT.
CHANGE YOUR LIFESTYLE NOW."
SAIL FOR CHANGE
Join us and our sailboat on a 2000 Nautical Mile journey, using nothing but sun, wind and water. 0% Diesel, 0% gasoline, 0% external shore power charging. Just a very smart engine and propeller, solar cells and our sails.
The sailboat, a 34 foot Smaragd, is getting a total makeover. We have ripped out the engine, the tank, the tubes and the smell of fossil fuel. We are installing a new electric drive, two batteries, a smart propeller and intelligent software. The propeller will charge while we are on sails. The solar cells as well.
We will not need to visit marinas to charge our batteries. Instead we will stop to share our experiences traveling on 100% sun, wind and water. While at it, we will raise the issue of plastics and trawl for micro-plastics along the way.
VISITING SEVEN COUNTRIES. THIS IS THE PLANNED TOUR...CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS.
PRAISING THE YOUNG
Bjorn Bertoft, Skipper: "I have sailed all my life and my children grew up sailing. They learned to love the sea, the islands, and the nature. Things we all took for granted back then, but that are being seriously threatened today. I make this journey for them and for their children to come. My point is sincere and pretty obvious: My generation owe to them to fundamentally change our lifestyle into a smarter one. Now. And no matter the cost."
Along the journey we will invite young climate entrepreneurs and advocates for a chat in our cockpit. We will listen to their stories, interview them on camera and promote their ideas – How do they think, what do they do, what can we learn? Their stories will be shared in our social medias, blog, pod and documentary film.
DOING A TESLA ON WATER
Our objective is to inspire boaters to go electric. We hope to raise awareness about how easy it is to go fossil free.
Tesla have kicked around in the car industry on land, forcing the fossil fuel car industry to admit that they not only can – but suddenly also want to – produce durable electrical vehicles with long ranges. We are happy to help create the same tumbling development on water. Every installed electric engine in a boat is a victory for all of us – it is smart, sustainable and nice.
