ACT 2020

VOYAGE 2020:

 

Yes, we will be sail racing in order to raise awareness for what has been called "Humanity's most important to-do list" – the United Nation's 17 Global Sustainable Development Goals – Agenda 2030. 

Plans for this year's project are in full swing and we will be updating the info on this page along with the progress:

 

STOCKHOLM-OSLO, 4 RACES AND

2020 NAUTICAL MILES

We will start in May from Stockholm, Sweden and finish in end of August in Oslo, Norway...passing by via Denmark. The long distance legs between the races will be sailed together with various young guest crew members – girls and boys. Join Us

PRELIMINARY VOYAGE 2020  (EXCL RACES)

First race will take place in Stockholm, then we go for the largest off-shore race in the Baltic Sea – Gotland Runt, then the largest race on the West Coast – Tjörn Runt and in Oslo we will simply create our own little "inshore climate race" together with friends and followers.

RACING CREW:

It started some 10 years ago in high school – the dream to sail Gotland runt together – Scandinavia's largest and longest race. Last year, the three young talented sailors Hanna, Siri and Hanna forwarded the idea to manifest their racing dream, together with a gender statement according to Goal no 5 in UN's Agenda 2030. Bam!...their inspiring idea was combined with our climate project and voyage around Scandinvia. Another trio of great sailors and friends – Elin, Inez and Eva – were then recruited to join in and safeguard that at least four spectacular races will be sailed.

SAILING ELECTRIC:

So what's the deal with sailing electric? To avoid fossil fuels of course. And to be able to charge our batteries using our speed while sailing... the Torqeedo electric pod engine and its propeller will be used as a hydrogenerator when we sail in speeds above 5 knots. Isn't that great – an engine that charges its own batteries by itself? We fell in love with that thought already in 2018 – it is in a sence an eternity machine...and a role model solution within Goal 7, 12, 13 and 14 in UN's Agenda 2030.

– Hello electric pod engine, the cable, a control unit and batteries. And hello all extra space.

– Bye bye fossil fuel, the emissions, the tank, the tubes, the filters, the smell, the spill, the grease, the holes through the hull, the need for cooling water, the sound, the searching for and stopping at gas stations.

ZERO WASTE:

Plastic pollution is one of the biggest threats to our oceans and wildlife today and packaging (single use plastics) makes up 40% of the overall plastic demand. To avoid these materials is not easy especially during travel but as a sustainability initiative and a Clean Seas Campaign affiliate it is our mission to “turn the tide on plastic”. So we must challenge ourselves to be responsible for our waste as part of our footprint during this project.

 

We will not only eliminate our consumption of single use plastics but also see what it takes to go “zero waste” on a boat. Meaning we will implement the 5 Rs as presented by Bea Johnson to reduce our waste as much as possible and ultimately send nothing to landfill. Guri from Hawaii is at the forefront in developing zero waste lifestyles for travel, her experiences are mind blowing and the benefits of such a sustainable and conscious lifestyle are more than obvious. They are definitely mirroring the ambitions in Goal no 12 and 13 in UN's Agenda 2030.

 

Guri will design and manage a tailor made zero waste program onboard our boat – from the day we take off from Stockholm until we arrive in Oslo some three months later. The program is detailed in our 100% Zero Waste Policy and includes an agreement for all crew members onboard the voyage. It explains how we will eliminate packaging, single use plastics, and unsustainable waste, such as sourcing from local organic farms, bulk groceries, alternative storage methods, reusing materials, avoiding food waste, composting, responsible recycling, natural chemical-free products, sustainable handling of waste water, and more.

 

Our progress, benefits and hardships will be posted in our blog.

SOLAR FOOD:

THE SOLAR OVEN ON DECK – USING NOTHING BUT THE REFLECTION OF SOLAR BEAMS WHEN COOKING...

Nude food, solar cooking, zero emissions slow-food, organic farms, package-free provisions, plant-based recipes… You name it, we are digging deep into the field of food sustainability with the help of Guri Bigham. She has extensive experience in health and sustainable food development, preparation and cooking. Living a natural and conscious lifestyle on the islands Maui and Kauai in the middle of the Pacific Ocean has colored her senses and skills. We are stoked to have her in the team and look forward to share what we learn in sourcing, preserving and storage onboard a small boat...and of course her healthy, tasty and sustainable meals, snacks and drinks.

 

We will challenge ourselves to use only renewable methods (solar and hydro-generation) for cooking, refrigeration and water heating onboard with no use of butane stoves or external electricity.  This is detailed in our 100% Solar Food Policy and includes an agreement for all crew members onboard the voyage.

OCEAN ARTIVISM:

Think this is just a boat? Wrong, it is also a canvas for ocean art. Julia from Mexico is a graffiti artist who calls her self an "Ocean Artivist" and she will make magic happen on that hull this spring...

We support new sustainable initiatives and biological solutions and are proud to announce our Ocean Artivism Project – raising awareness about the need for action now according to the Sustainable Development Goal no 14 in UN's Agenda 2030. So by using our hull and sails as canvases for Julia Moldonado's creative and inspirational expressions we hope to stir up some thoughts . She will go all in with her characteristic "ink-art" using our biocide and toxic free coating directly on our hull.

You see, the coating "underdog" manufacturer Seaboost, with their toxic free coating, teamed up with us already in 2018. We experienced a new hard surface coating and how easy it was to clean the under water hull that season – despite warm waters and a few intensive barnacle periods. Wiping the hull clean was an easy fix with the brushes, a cloth or simply by hand.

Toxic painting and its hazardous effects on marine life has been a severe issue around the world for too long now – and it still is. We need to show more respect to the oceans, seas and lakes and stop poisoning them. Now. Right?
