Here we - 3 of us and the boat. 11, 7 m x 3,6m of space, enough for us and for guests. Ok, maybe not forfull football team but for 2-3 extra guest or crew (depend how you prefer to call) we could find a space:)
We love having visitors, but we understand that the way of life we are living may be not for everyone. You may love it - or hate it! But before knowing that you need to try. So we invite you to come and taste, what it means to live on boat and sail. Visit remote islands and bays, busy harbors or quite villages, stay on anchor, jump to water and swim directly from the boat, snorkel and go fishing, surf on waves sailing downwind or get wet, when it needs to fight the wind to the nose, watch dolphins playing around, sight whales and so on. We share our home, our stories, our experience- everything!!!The moment you step on board- Grain de Sable is your home too!
There is just one thing you need to know- we are cruisers, but not a charter boat. We try to avoid strict timetables and rush. Be flexible-this is our style. All depends on sea and wind. They are the ones, who rule. And we are the ones, who respect and adapt.
So if some of you are interested in sailing and tasting cruising life - you are very welcome to stay and sail with us. You can come for a day, two , week or more . All depends, on how much free time you have and of course on how busy we are. So call or write us and together we will speak about conditions and find perfect way for both parts!
SOME PRACTICAL THINGS YOU NEED YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE COMING
Here are just a few things to keep in mind before planning a visit. They may sound little boring and not so romantic, like all what is written above, but we want our guest to have an idea, what to expect when they come here. If you have sailed before probably it will be familiar to you,but if its your first time, read this may be useful:
Showering –some of you may not like this, but we do not have hot water on boat. But we do have shower!!! (that’s sounds better nor?) Inside the boat and on deck, in the cockpit. But it,s cold ( but who cares if outside is hotJ) and we use it just to rinse the salty water out and refresh ourselves. That means , when we sail on long distances our best shower equipment is bucket. .We shower ourselves with salty water and than take out salt with the fresh one. Girls have priority, so boys be ready to have some salt on you for a while. When boat stays in the harbors, we go to the hot showers onshore. AND ENJOY……..looooooot….!
Fresh Water – We have 320 liters of drincable water in tanks on board. But we do not have water maker . For the long distances we fill extra plastic tanks with fresh water to assure we will have enough for all the way. So as you see water is need to be controlled. That’s means water we use is just for drinking and cooking, and yes for rinsing ourselves after salty shower too All the rest we do with salty water (clean dishes and etc.)
Electricity – the power comes from sun and wind. We have solar panels and wind generator. which produce enough electricity for main electric equipmnets.
The luxury to be connected and have energy onboard!
