100% MISSIONS

We truly want to inspire people to learn more about sustainable lifestyle alternatives. We want to test and prove that it is in fact possible to make significant changes in life while still having fun. Without having to leave the things we love, without having to change into a life in a cave, without having to sacrifice more than a small slice of our habits or our so called modern society "needs". We are sailors and love the oceans, so we chose to do it on a boat.

Agenda 2030 is not a joke. Launched by 196 countries in 2015 and with only 10 years to go. Most people understand by now that we are facing serious problems on a global scale. Too few do anything to help out, despite that understanding.

So we have decided to act now and stir up some hopeful vibes. We chose to go out to meet and learn from others who made it a mission to act now. We chose to share positive insights and experiences, rather than complaining about those who say they will act on Monday next week or in 2045...

Here some lines about our missions and what we intend with our ambitions and how they are connected to the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals – the Agenda 2030.

 

 

100% FOSSIL FUEL FREE

Our mission is to be 100% energy independent. We will not use any fossil fuel during our voyages or races – no diesel or gasoline for any motor, no propane gas for cooking or heating, no fotogene for oil lamps, no diesel for electric generators and no charging of our batteries from shore power sockets if the provider can not prove 100% that the electricity delivered via them is produced from renewable sun, wind or water power plants. We will "harvest" energy and charge our batteries by solar panels, wind generator and hydrogeneration. Our Torqeedo electric drive recharges its own batteries when we are sailing in more than 5 knots speed.

We want to inspire boaters to go electric and show how easy it is. Like what happened on land with electric vehicles...

Little Tesla kicked the gigantic car industry like nothing ever before. They forced entire 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 enjoyable.

100% Fossil Fuel Free is connected to the following United Nation's Agenda 2030 Goals:

100% FEMALE RACING CREW

Our mission is to race with 100% female crew members and to recruit, invite and empower primarily young women for active roles within the project.

Gender inequalities are still troubling and within the sailing community it is not only a very obvious male dominance onboard the boats, there are discrimatory and sexistic undertones displayed in too many forms and on too many levels. These conditions have recently been measured and displayed in the work by the World Sailing Trust and the "Women In Sailing Strategic Report", launched on December 5th 2019. Signed by our Project Patron Dee Caffari MBE. Check out the summary video:

100% TOXIC FREE COATING

Our mission is to contribute with zero toxins and zero micro-particles into the water from our coating. We also want to experience and share the "new" habit of having to brush the underwater hull from time to time during a long season. We started in 2018 with the toxic free coating by SeaBoost OY from Finland, this year is the third season and the test continues...


Practically every boat on the planet is painted under the waterline to avoid unwanted visitors and inhabitants. Toxins in the paint has been used since paint was invented. That is a lot of toxins and a lot of years and it has to stop. Environmentally friendly alternatives has to be supported and welcomed. In the Baltic Sea the poor condition of the water is alarming due to many factors and sailors are for sure one of them. We simply need to rethink and do better and be part of the solution.

100% ZERO WASTE

 

Our mission is to challenge ourselves to be responsible for our waste as part of our footprint during this project. As a sustainability initiative, we take into consideration not only our transportation and energy usage but also our daily consumption of food/supplies, and thus our waste. Plastic pollution is one of the biggest threats to our oceans and wildlife today and packaging makes up 40% of the overall plastic demand  (World Economic Forum 2017). Furthermore, all forms of waste (food, human, paper, glass, aluminum, etc.) have an impact on our health and environment when not managed properly. 

 

The Zero Waste movement aims to create a closed circular system where everything we consume is sustainably regenerated, essentially sending nothing to landfill. It is a lifestyle that reduces waste as much as possible by refusing what is not necessary, swapping disposables for reusables, responsibly recycling when necessary, enriching our soil by composting, and supporting/encouraging sustainable businesses. 

 

During travel and onboard a small boat, waste is evident and accumulates quickly. We want to test and prove that a zero-waste lifestyle is possible, enjoyable, saves money, and simply makes sense onboard a boat. We will actively encourage, inspire and educate crew members, guests and the boat community to start adopting zero waste practices. 

100% Zero Waste is connected to the following United Nation's Agenda 2030 Goals:

100% SOLAR FOOD

Our mission is practice conscious and sustainable food sourcing and cooking methods, what we call “Solar Food”. It aims to avoid unsustainable practices imposed by large food corporations by reducing our consumption of imported foods, food packaging, pesticides, and factory animal products. Instead we have the opportunity to support local farms, implement zero waste, eat healthy organic and plant-based meals although not restricted to veganism. Additionally, we take into consideration the energy used to prepare, cook, preserve and store our food as part of our 100% Fossil Fuel Free initiative onboard.

Deforestation and unsustainable agricultural practices are casing rapid loss of biodiversity on earth. This directly affects human livelihood and well being, the extinction of animal, plant and insect populations (1 million species are at risk according to the UN) and also contributes to climate change.

Goal #15 of Agenda 2030 “Life on Land” urges us to eat a locally-based and sustainably sourced diet in order to halt and reverse desertification, land degradation, and biodiversity loss. Purchasing foods that are imported from far away places greatly contributes to
carbon emissions during transportation on ships and airplanes. We will favor locally sourced ingredients that are fresher, more trustworthy and culturally relevant to our project.

Toxic pesticides, herbicides and fungicides used in agriculture are not only harmful to human health but also detrimental to the soil, waters, and wildlife. By choosing organic produce and ingredients we make a healthy contribution to ourselves and the planet.
Mono-crop agriculture, genetic modification and inhumane factory farming are detrimental to biodiversity, animal welfare, human health and contribute to climate change. By supporting small-batch local farms and sustainable wild sources of food, we vote with our wallets for food sovereignty.

100% OCEAN ARTIVISM

Our mission is to create awareness via art everywhere we go. We will use our boat, our sails and ourselves as canvases. We will expose the art while sailing, while racing, while visiting marinas and by exposing the art online on social media. We will use the raised awareness for educational purposes and offer pop-up learning sessions covering sustainable lifestyle and boat life  alternatives for boat people.
