On Patreon you can sign up to become our Patron! It's an easy way to show your support and help us finance our project. You can choose an amount you wish to donate per video we create (between $3 to $50). In exchange you'll get to see our videos first.

Donate to Our Foundation

We try to live a conscious lifestyle and participate in the giving and sharing economy as much as possible. Unfortunately, we cannot deny that sailing around the world costs money, even if done on a budget. Things break and need to be fixed or replaced, as every sailor has experienced. Insurance premiums, for the boat and us, need to be paid regularly. Add harbour fees, diesel (as little as possible), and food and you get an idea what we need just to get by from day to day. If we travel in the countries we visit, for example to visit sustainable solution projects, we'll also need to pay for transportation and lodging. For most if not all of the above, money in the local currency is often the only legal tender. See below how you can make a donation.

Become A Partner

We welcome sponsoring contributions from organisations and companies that share our values and aim to lead in the field of sustainability. Partnerships help us spread our message, inspire followers to make their daily lives more sustainable, and potentially bring about cooperation between our partners and sustainable projects. We offer different partnership levels. Please contact us for more information about partnerships.

We are grateful for all the support we receive, be it in the form of sharing our stories on social media, donating your time, sharing your knowledge, opening up your networks, providing hardware, services, or financial contributions. We cannot do this without you! Thank you for your involvement.

Sail with Us

Lucipara 2 by Minke Lohrengel

Do you want to experience what it’s like to be a Sailor for Sustainability? Are you passionate about the earth, our society and the future? Then apply to sail with us for one or two weeks. You’ll be a full crew member (no sailing experience required), assist with research, planning, visits, articles, videos, social media, and fundraising. You may also develop and execute your own ideas that help us achieve our goals.

Applications are open for anyone aged 18 – 80, the timing is to be agreed. Your contribution to the costs are determined depending on experience, length of stay, and sailing area. Contact Us for additional information or an application.
