Sail-off for "Gotland Runt Unplugged"

After a hectic week - installing an updated Torqeedo pod-engine, finalizing detailed ocean art on the hull and preparing food within our zero waste policy, the five racing crew members Hanna, Siri, Hanna, Elin and Inez pressed the start button. Sailing off for a unfortunate COVID-19 cancelled race, but doing our version anyway – "Gotland Runt Unplugged". Setting off for a racing/training adventure in potential rough winds and 270 Nautical Miles. Ok, lets go...270 Nautical Miles here we come:-) Being honoured with an invitation to lay side-by-side the legendary 63 footer S/Y Refanut, we spent a day and evening with experienced sailors.

Ocean Artivism in action

We are proud to unveil some hardcore Ocean Artivism by talented and creative Julia Maldonado, who could not travel in to Sweden from Mexico to paint her art herself (due to COVID travel restrictions). We simply did it for her instead – well, simply is not the right word, but we used a projector and connected via Facetime to solve the toughest challenges. Haha, we will never count the hours spent under that hull...with our paint brushes holding the slim widths of only 5-20 millimeter. Maybe the world's first full hull sailboat canvas? Don't miss to scroll down all the way and check out the time-lapse video... Why Julia Maldonado? She is born and raised in a diving family on the island Cozume

Greeting from Dee!

We are immensely grateful and proud for the support given us from our Project Patron Dee Caffari MBE. One of the world's most experienced sailors.

Launch delayed, racing schedule changed, project developed!

We gave the project the name ACT 2020 for a reason... and we will act despite the turbulent times and the consequences of Covid-19. Launching while celebrating The World Environment Day on June 5th was a dream of ours. We will still celebrate the Environment Day, but we decided to push our launch a week forward in order to get everything set and to await new decisions on travel restrictions within Sweden (Swedish government announced today that people in Sweden without symptoms are now free to travel within the country, but are still obliged to follow the rules about distancing etc). SAIL OFF LAUNCH DATE – THURSDAY JUNE 11th More details about the launch will be posted when we know more. F
