Sailing Netherlands to Madeira and/or Madeira to the Canary Islands on a +100 year old 36 Schooner | Ocean Nomads gathering on the Ocean
A hands-on voyage for life together with a likeminded bunch of Ocean Nomads, driven by passion and purpose for the love of the ocean, exploration and creation of a conscious, true, authentic lifestyle.
Expedition ON is an experience unlike anything we’ve ever organized. It’s offshore and on a bigger vessel than our usual flotillas. SV Twister allows us to connect more souls in one place, away from civilization where we disconnect from everything but each other and nature. We’re ON to Adventure, Skill Building, Community, Lifestyle and Impact. On arrival (end of October / early November) in the Canaries we’ll do a raft up with other vessel members in the zone.
Led by our Suzy @oceanpreneur who also joins the voyage.
Departure Leg 2: October 23, 2021 (4 spots left)

“What I hoped to gain from this community was the option of finding crew. Instead what I found is a collection of people who get what I do, who understand why we make certain choices and who are willing to support each other. And that is something i needed way more than just someone to sail with.” Vessel Member Michiel
“The big opportunity of this platform is, that we all are driven by the same spirit. That makes it easy to build up a team aboard, for me the most important thing out on the ocean. Sailing skills are not as important as many people believe, you will learn everything you must know in less than one week, I promise. ” – Vessel Member & Captain Wolfgang
