OCEAN NOMADS SAILING EVENTS AND EXPEDITIONS

A few times a year we organize something special and rather spontaneous at sea. Ocean Nomads events and expeditions connect people to each other and to the ocean. Nothing brings people together like actually bringing people together. And nothing triggers more than actual experience. We add nature and adventure into the mix, and we have a recipe for creating a big dose of positive energy and accelerating change for a common good. We provide ocean adventure and encourage low-impact travel. 

Some events are free for members, some require a little contribution, and some are “commercial”. When we have the resources, we facilitate scholarships to make usually inaccessible adventures, accessible. 

We live up to the Ocean Nomads’ slow sailing philosophy. We strive to have an onboard environment that inspires adventure and play, with a strong emphasis on skill building, health, simplicity, local, teamwork and environmental consciousness. Learn more about our trip values & expectations here.

Webinar & Q&A with ocean legend Patrick Phelipon | Long term sailor, Boatbuilder & participant in Global Solo Challenge

Join us in this webinar with Patrick Phelipon. Patrick sailed all his life at high level, did world tours with Eric Tabarly on different Pen Duick. He built boats, was a sailmaker, did big regattas and has great ambitions. He is now signed up to the 2023 Global Solo Challenge with a boat he designed many years ago. 

Our Luca Tausel has just sailed across the Atlantic with him and will host this webinar with Patrick this Friday. Patrick will share his story and current project. Be ready. He may have some unusual questions to ask long-term sailors on crazy ideas to make long-term non-stop sailing easier. And there’ll be room for questions and answers!
