OCEAN NOMADS EVENTS AND EXPEDITIONS

About the Ocean Nomads EVENTS & EXPEDTIONS

2-3 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.

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 health, simplicity, local, teamwork and environmental consciousness. Learn more about our trip values & expectations here.

Can’t wait? We also have lots of members with vessels who are occasionally looking for adventure crew. Or do you have a vessel and could use skilled dedicated crew? Join the family to connect with vessels, crew, and driven nomads. Also as we grow we organize more and more member gatherings in fleets and anchorages.

Most Events and Expeditions are member-only. You can request to join the community here and start the adventure and connecting right now.

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.

Let's talk Boats

Member Initiative! Peter is hosting a walk-through and Q&A on his boat. “The long search is over and all the prep work is done. So welcome aboard S/V Linea. Log on, fill up a glass of squash (or wine) and let’s talk boats. I will happily run through why the Bavaria 430 Lagoon ticked all my boxes for bluewater cruising.
