    Re: seglingskollektiv til Asien!

    hi guys. we are slowly getting the boat ready.
    two questions for you scuba guys.

    1. we are kind of all-in aluminiums guys. Will it be smart to get just aluminum scuba tanks onboard? when they are old we can just melt them down to portholes or other stuff we need :-) Any reason why NOT choose aluminium scuba tanks??

    2. We look for a diving compressor to have onboard. What is wise? gas/diesel run separate system or connect to a genset? (one phase) any brands we should start look for? Anything to think about when it comes to compressors?

    love from
    sailing the farm

    1. You will have to use more leads when using aluminium tanks. Law of Archimedes. 2. Get a small one running on petrol. Most important is to place the air intet _FAR_ away from exthaus (from compressor and boat engine)

    Newsletter March 2015. .

    Dear Sea Gypsies,

    First, apology for delayed newsletter. The winter has been a busy one
    and it hasn't been that much time to keep up with the Newsletter, but
    we must say we are superhappy to get so many postcards and hear from
    all of you volunteers who have been here.....

    To be Norway its been quite a mild winter, the good thing is that
    heating has been running minside the boat whole winter so we have
    hardly felt the cold outside - a good test to see if our heating
    system inside the boat is ready to stand up for sailing in Antarctica.

    The sun is starting to heat up the farm and us slowly, the last week
    we really can feel the spring is coming. Our chicken is happy outside
    during daytime and seems to enjoy the sun as much as we do.

    Our metal working skills and diesel engine skills (mostly lack of) has
    been put to a test. We are more or less been busy doing brainsurgery
    on our 500 kg spare diesel engine to check how it looks inside and
    learning how those are working. Those parts we think will stop working
    will be brought onboard, (spare waterpumps, piston rings, gaskets etc)
    It gives a good feeling to know how that machine is working and even
    if we are a sailors, one day we will be happy to be pushed up the
    Amazon river or other places with the help of that engine . The one
    we will use seems to seems to be ok (we have been testing diesel
    injectors, compressions etc on the farm) The good thing bringing such
    test-equipment means we can help other volunteer-farms whith diesel
    engine problems...

    Rigging the boat is also on the list, since we make mostly everything
    ourselves we will make our own woodblocks for the rig. Its a classical
    gaff-rig with around 105 m2 sails which will be our main propulsion.
    It will be quite interesting when we are doing the sea trail to see if
    its well balanced.. hopefully our calculation is correct and it wont
    sail upside down or backwards as someone is thinking....

    If you want to join us sailing around the world or helping up on the
    farm please dont hesitate to contact us. Here are some pictures from
    last months pluss a nice ones from last summer/autumn which shows how
    real Norway looks like. (that is the westcoast)

    Lastly we wish you all a happy spring.

    Love from sailing the farm
    A seagypsy tribe of tomorrow.

    Re: seglingskollektiv til Asien!

    Dear old and new volunteers,

    There are lots of very exciting things happening at Sailing the Farm right

    We are happy to report that after many long and character-building years of
    boat-building, we're well on our way to sailing later this year.

    Here's an overview of what's been happening up here lately:

    - Our aluminum Colin Archer sailboat is taking shape. She is starting to
    look like a boat, and a good looking boat at that. She is as yet unnamed
    and suggestions that we call her The Unsinkable have fallen on deaf ears
    (to the disappointment of our Irish volunteer). Any and all naming
    suggestions welcome!

    - We have begun to machine sheaves for the boat. Our red sails arrive soon
    so it's all go, go, go in the workshop these days.

    - The heads is progressing quickly and soon it will be possible to take a
    shower on board. Our Belgian volunteer has fashioned fancy toothbrush
    holders for all future sea gypsies.

    - Last week we cut open a section of the boat shed so that we can move the
    engine on board. This will be a huge milestone for the project.

    - In April, we had our first official government visit. We are happy to
    report that she passed with flying colours.

    - Our volunteers have started watching movies on deck every Thursday night.
    Their 'Movies on Board' programme is limited to sailing movies (of course).
    They've watched '180 degrees south' and 'All is Lost' so far. Both come
    stamped with The Sailing the Farm seal of approval. If you've any sailing
    movie recommendations, please send them on to us!

    - Some of our current volunteers/gluttons for punishment are training for
    the Lillehammer half-marathon in June. At the moment they are getting up at
    6:30 to run in the woods before tucking into a breakfast of hearty porridge
    and a day of boat-building. Some even manage to fit in a spot of meditation
    before breakfast.

    - The snow has thawed and we have started to turn the potato field. Our
    bathroom has been transformed into a temporary nursery while we wait to
    start planting. Our very versatile bathroom is also home to seven chirpy
    baby chickens!

    Our long-serving captain's To-Do-List is diminishing every week, but
    there's a lot of hard work still to do. We'd love to welcome more
    volunteers (old and new) this summer. A can-do attitude and lots of
    enthusiasm are the only skills we require (though more specific skills are
    very welcome also). So if you are free and can commit to a month, please
    get in contact with us ASAP so that we can book you in to help.

    There will be a launch party in Oslo later on this year when she takes to
    the water. Watch this space!

    Sailing the Farm.

    p.s. Now that we're almost there with this boat, we're starting to think
    about the next stage of the project (we plan to find a farm base away from
    the Polar winds – somewhere sunnier and closer to the sea where we can
    build more boats). We are on the lookout for funding ideas and inspiration
    so if you have any suggestions or experience in this area, please let us
    know - no ideas too small or crazy (building a boat with volunteers is
    crazy already!).


    a: English girl making blocks for the boat.
    b: movie night on the boat
    c: irish girl silicone up inside the boat.
    d: scaffold building
    e: early morning mediation (hong-kong girl)
    f: first crew is already onboard.

    Re: seglingskollektiv til Asien!

    May/June 2015

    Ahoy Sea Gypsies!

    It has been a busy May and start of June on the farm.

    Biggest news first: The red sails have arrived! You'll see them in the
    picture below. They look fantastic and it's a great help to see them all
    laid out so that we can imagine ourselves on the high seas (instead of on
    high grass as they are now).

    We are also happy to report that we managed to get the engine on board! At
    the moment we are in the process of getting it *into* the boat and all
    hooked up.

    More news:

    – We had a bit of an unexpected delay late last month as we had to refit
    the diesel tanks, but they are all good now and it's full steam (or should
    we say 'sails'?) ahead for Oslo this September we hope.

    – We also had a close shave with our welding machine. Our last one appeared
    to give up the ghost, until an emergency transplant (from another dead
    welding machine) got it up and running again. Our skipper's vision of
    heaven is a world with nothing but brand new welding machines that never
    break down.

    – Life on the farm continues apace. Since we last wrote to you, the
    Norwegian countryside has exploded into summer. The snow is finally gone
    and everything is green and dappled with wildflowers. The bees are very
    happy. Our baby chickens are babies no longer. They are big and bold and
    getting braver by the day. Every morning they expand their wanderings a
    little further and yesterday we spotted one looking curiously at the big
    aluminum monster in the boat-shed. We'll make boat-builders of them yet.

    – There is drama in the hen-house. Our two roosters, who have been at peace
    for over a year, have just declared war on each other.

    – The volunteers are keeping very busy in the sunshine. At the moment we
    have an Irish woman, an English woman, a Belgian man, a Welshman and a
    Swede in residence on the farm. A full crew at the moment - but we still
    have some space for July and August so get in touch if you've a free month
    and you'd like to help out.

    – It doesn't get dark until at least midnight now, and even then it's just
    for a few short hours. More light to build boats in

    Thank you for your suggestions for sailing movies and boat names. We have
    them all lined up on our summer schedule. In the meantime we've watched
    Mutiny on the Bounty (the one with Anthony Hopkins and Mel Gibson) and
    Troll Hunter (not a sailing movie, but a Norwegian one, so it's been
    approved on that basis by the captain).

    Happy almost mid-summer from Sailing the Farm!

    a: happy gang of boatbuilders.
    b: sails are ready.
    c: welding lady
    d: playing guitar in pyjamas.
    e: the girls dragging the engine onboard.

    Newsletter late July 2015

    Dear all

    The bees are busy and so are we. We're hoping to move the boat to the
    water this year so it's all go, go, go our boat-building farm these
    days. The engine has made it to its final resting place!
    Hallelujah. Hopefully we won't have to use it all that much, but its
    installation marks a big step in the project.

    The rudder is taking shape and looking fantastic thanks to our Welsh
    volunteer, Our Hong Kong volunteer has returned for another
    boat-building stint, this time with her Swedish boyfriend in tow – a
    chef by profession so as well as contributing to the boat-building,
    he's been keeping us well-fed with delicious lunches on the porch.

    The farm itself has been neglected a little this summer in favour of
    the great big aluminum monster in the boat-shed, but we have been
    enjoying lots of nettle-based dishes (it helps to have a professional
    chef around!).

    The volunteers took a well-deserved break from boat-building last
    month and went on a road-trip to Galdhopiggen, the highest peak in
    Scandinavia. The sun shone for the entire trip (and pretty much hasn't
    been seen since) and left some of the fairer-skinned crew completely
    sunburned. Highlights included an ice cave, a moose sighting and
    unbelievable sunsets across the huge Norwegian sky.

    Now that the sea is in our sights, we've started hand-painting guest
    flags on the evenings and weekends.

    Our latest favourite sailing movie is the questionable masterpiece
    that is Waterworld. It's given us lots of ideas for modifications for
    our boat.

    We've named the boat! Thank you all for your suggestions. After a lot
    of thought we decided to go for Sailing the Farm. It sounds a little
    bonkers to native English speakers, but that's kind of why we love it!
    We've cut out the letters in aluminium and they are due to be welded
    in very soon.

    We are still on the hunt for volunteers - particularly those with
    sailing experience - and especially those who've worked on gaff rigs

    Exciting times, and even more exciting times to come. Thank you all
    for your support, it's been a long time coming, but the end is in

    Pictures of the month.

    - Making letters for the boat.
    - chinese weekend visit. checking the boat project.
    - Welding lady making more boxes for the deck. Need endless amount of storage.
    - Guest flag production. This is the welsh one.
    - Rudder is getting installed.

    Love from Sailing the Farm

    Sailing the Farm late september 2015

    Hi everyone!

    Another productive month and our boat hopefully soon to be in water.

    Farm news:

    The bee-seeason is finished for this year, each hive have got around
    20 kg, so now they are ready to have their well-deserved winter
    holiday for next 7 months. The potatoes is still in the soil, but we
    will harvest them pretty soon.

    Boat News.

    Still some days delays with the shipment of the boat to Oslo.
    The engine is ready to start soon. we just need a little work with the
    dry exhaust. Else it looks really good.

    All welding work outside the hull is finished. We will paint the
    underwater part of the boat with expoxy primer this week. Then start
    to tear down the boatshed. Soon our metal-lady will see the sun for
    the first time.

    We still look for potential crew for the first leg of sailing,
    especially if you have good knowledge of gaff-rig adjustment and
    sailing, we would love to hear from you. Also look for some last
    minute volunters to help clean up the farm for the winter. Please
    contact us if you have some spare time in october.

    Pictures of the month:

    a: Flagmaking lady working on even more guestflags. Still a little
    work until we have them all.
    b: engine is in and wired up. Just need some work on the exhaust part
    before its ready to push us up Amazon river and beyond.
    c: welding lady at work.
    d: making wooden box for binocular.
    e: welding up the locking mechanism of the main-hatch

    Love from Sailing the farm
