    Dear Sea Gypsies

    Whops. time is flying so fast and soon october was gone and no
    newsletter sent out so here it comes a little late.

    Still no snow up here, which is just incredible. Should have been half
    a meter by now.. but the good thing is: it feels like mid-europe
    climate so why migrate to Spain when Spain is coming to us!

    Farming season is over, everything which was planted during summer is
    in the basement. We got around 300 kg of potatoes which will keep us
    going until spring. We have turned into professional dumpster-divers
    and find way too much food - so we are getting a little picky - What
    about raspberries from Brazil? Its hard to believe so much food who is
    just wasted. Someone should do something... ahh. enough political
    rambling..

    Boatbuilding is going really good. She is happy as a fiddle. Latley
    she got shiny bowrollers installed, (both forward and aft), tiller,
    and soon to come: bowsprit! We just have to cut down the tree.
    Everyday we see changes, and its a good sign... We are making the fat
    lady ready for the 7 seas. She will be the strongest boat ever sailing
    out there.


    Thats all for this late october newsletter, If you are interested in
    becoming a seay gypsy, just drop us a line.

    Love from Sailing the farm.

    December 2013

    Dear Sea Gypsies

    December again! This one has has been quite warm. (today is only -10C)
    We still have frostbites from the one last year so we are happy as a
    fiddle up here. Makes life and boatworking much easier.

    Its been a really good year on sailing the farm with lots of stuff
    accomplished and its still some more work weeks to go before we can
    sum up 2013.

    Deck fittings, deckhouse and most of the stuff up there is
    finished. We are proud to say that everything is home-made. Not a
    single thing is from the the boat-store.. Main reason for this is:
    its hard to get stuff in alloy who looks like wood..

    We have probably put another 2000-3000 hours into the boatproject this
    summer (with the help of all of those nice and skillfull volunteers)
    and still some 2000-3000 hours to go until we see her finshed.

    This christmas will be a traditional one on the farm with St. Claus
    (Julenisse in norwegian) coming down from the northpole with the
    sledge, raindeers and ofcouse packets. I usually dont fancy soft
    packets, but im in dire need for a new welding overall so if the
    julenisse reads this... :-)

    ok. I know its a little early early, but we wish new and old friends
    of sailing-the-farm a peaceful and quiet christmas and a prosperius
    new year and hope to see you all up next year.

    Love from Sailing the farm.
    A sea gypsy tribe of tomorrow.

    Re: seglingskollektiv til Asien!

    February 2014 Dear Sea Gypsies The winter has been kind to us this year. During Christmas and New year there was hardly any snow up here, which is kind of unusual at 60 degrees north. January has been mostly down to -10C which is really good when we work outside. In January we got plenty of snow so skiing is as close to perfect as it is possible to get and we have plenty of those old and wooden army skiis around.(we use to call them NATO-planks) For first termers its perfect skiis. Slow and heavy. The Boat work is going pretty good . We are working on insulating inside and we are more or less finished with the aft cabin (named princess cabin), since its getting really nice and spacious. We are soon ready to start insulate and plate the main cabin in the boat. Its a little more tricky due to the galley (kitchen for those landlubbers out there). and also the navigation station. Then its more casting. Basically more cowl-vents to get more fresh air into the boat.. We usually run with lower staff during winter but this year we will scale up in February and aim for getting the boat ready for sea-trial this year. It will be a busy summer. So if you think you have some useful skills (welding, mechanics, sewing, interior wood working) or are really good at cracking jokes you are more than welcome to join us. This is hopefully the last year of boat building (Ok, I know we have said that before but...) so hurry up if you want to be part of the fun. (Ok, I admit sailing is also fun) But it gives a good feeling knowing that you have been part of building something moving around our planet with zero pollution... Love from Sailing the farm. A sea gypsy tribe of tomorrow. Pictures: a: Plating and insulating inside the boat b: one of the crew made an icebar! How cool is that! c: the chicken-sisters is busy hatching golf-balls!

    Re: seglingskollektiv til Asien!

    April 2014

    Greetings to all sea gypsies, past present and future!

    The springchickens and bees are active and so are we!

    Anotherbusy month for boat building. The gang has been shaping,
    painting and fitting the interior panels with plenty of insulation
    underneath. The bunk cabins are shaped and even one of the volunteers
    has tested one with an overnight sleep - very comfy! English Tony has
    been busy designing the wiring and circuitry, and Frenchy has helped
    determine the electrical needs and the outputs we can expect from the
    solar panels and windmill. Will we be able to boil the kettle often
    enough at sea?

    Lorna, the English girl has been attacking with gusto and positive
    energy the mold-making for the cowl vents, and hopes to start smelting
    and pouring some aluminium this week. Frenchy has calculated and drawn
    up the sail plan, and has made a 1/10 model to verify his design.

    Sarah the token yank is spoiled in the warm indoors sewing up
    custom-sized boat mattresses, cushions and curtains. Are Czech girls
    sweet? When they've been covered in honey for 2 days like Micha they
    are: 60 jars of lovely honey and we're happy to have some at every
    meal! Jams as well, lingonberry, strawberry and plum, and some great
    banana cakes from Lorna as well.

    The weekend was warm spring weather and all volunteers descended upon
    the spa and pool at the cloest town for an outing. Happy at work and
    at rest. There is still plenty to do in the coming months - have you
    the skills to help? Woodworking, electrial and engine skills, sewing
    and more. We hope to hear from you!


    Love from Sailing the farm.

    May 2014

    Greetings to all sea gypsies, past present and future!

    I hope you all had a beautiful May, with lots of sunshine and no
    snow. Up on the farm, we are happy as fiddles. The weather is just
    perfect. it was snowing a little in the beginning of May but then it
    turned into summer and now we have those really nice warm days with
    sun until midnight..

    Farming News.

    The farming is going good. we have started with queen breeding which
    will give us a few more hives, then we have planted all kinds of
    veggies in the garden and some in the small greenhouse. Now, there
    will be lot of weeding until harvest time..

    Boat-News:

    We are working on blumbing and electricity inside the boat these days.
    Next step is getting the engine in then the sails. We might have to
    outsource the sailmaking due to lack of time. so if you know about
    some good sail-loft we would love to hear about it.

    BREAKING NEWS:

    A little early but... we are really pushing hard to sail south this
    year. hopefully around the same time those smart migrating birds are
    flying south. (finger crossed) So if you want to join us as CREW please
    contact us.

    We will prioritize those of you who have been on the farm, but
    everyone will get a chance to come sailing in the end No sail
    experience required. We will teach you whatever skills you need. And
    for those of you who have never been out on the seven seas.. Enclosed
    is a picture of a pacific island waiting for you....

    We still have space for one more more sea-gypsy up on the farm this
    summer , so if you have skills you might think we need, dont hesitate
    to contact us.

    Love from Sailing the farm.
    A sea gypsy tribe of tomorrow.

    Pictures:

    1. This small pacific is waiting for us all...
    2. Sail plan. Anyone into sail-making or know about a good sail-loft?
    3. Plating up the dog-house.
    4. Small greenhouse ready for summer. This is for sugar-peas.
    5. Happy welding lady fixing up some small stuff.

    June 2014

    Greetings to all sea gypsies out there

    Its been a busy month up at the farm. The potatoes are slowly coming
    up. the bees are out flying and we even got ourselves some more queens
    this year, but best of all, the weather has been really good. Days and
    days of sun, which is more you can ask for so far north.

    We are also working hard on the boat to finish up and go south this
    year. The plating is finished, which was more or less a 2-3 months
    work. Next one is installing all electric stuff and continue gettting
    the engine in. Getting the rigging in also have high priority now.

    As mentioned earlier our plan is to set sail for West Indies/Cuba at
    the end of this year helping wwoofing/organic communities around the
    world. So if you have skills in organic farming and love travel with
    zero carbon footprint, please contact us.

    We still have space up on the farm until the boat is finished so if
    you have farming or boatbuilding skills you think might be useful
    please contact us.

    Love from
    Sailing the Farm
    A sea gypsy tribe of tomorrow.

    July 2014

    Greetings to all our fans, helpers and sea gypsies out there.

    July 2014 has been as busy as we expected. We have had people from all
    over the world to come help us with running the boat project forward
    and plant and weed on the fields to get us self-sufficient in
    future. We are still some way to go but we are getting there.

    On the boat side the biggest thing is that all the inner plating and
    insulation are all finished up, the bathroom (wet-room) is plated and
    all watertanks are welded into position. Next big thing is to get the
    engine into the boat. We have to lift it up 3 meters and then 2 meters
    sideways. Its a little messy but we are working on this right
    now. Weight of the engine is around 500 kg so we need a hoist-system.

    The volunteers took some days off to hitch-hike to the west coast, and
    came happily back home with pictures of fiords, and camping outside in
    the mountains close to the glaciers. The summer has been extremely
    warm one so contrary to what i was thinking that they will almost
    freeze to death they got back to the farm sun-burned with a happy
    smile on their faces.

    During next weeks we will be harvesting what we have been planting
    this year and we will work on the engine and rigging, so if you have
    any skills you might think be useful please feel free to contact us.

    We also looking for crew for sailing across the atlantic, heading
    towards Cuba when the boat is finished so if you find that fancy
    please contact us.

    August/September 2014

    Greetings to all our fans, helpers and sea gypsies out there.


    The autumn is here and with that comes harvest on sailing the farm. We
    got lots of raspberries this year which is partly stored in the
    freezer and partly as jam. Then some hundred jars of raspberry-honey
    from the bees and in the end we harvested the potatoes, so in sum: Yes
    we are partly selfsufficient, but it might be a little boring eating
    baked potatoes with raspberries and honey every day during the winter.
    :-) But we are slowly getting there...

    We are also getting closer with the boat project. All stuff made of
    fabric is finished, electricity (both AC and DC) is installed. There
    is still some more work to do on the engine before its ready to go
    into the boat (basically split and rebuilt that iron beast)

    Then there is some deck work left, and then the last step is tearing
    down the temporary boatshed to get ship the boat down to the
    sea. So still lots of work to do but its going forward.

    We wish you all a happy autumn whereever you are.

    Love from
    Sailing the Farm
