A Rest Day for Deckhands

This morning (unfortunately) was the mid-stay mark. We needed a reward: a quiet rest day. VACATIONS, FINALLY! We woke up at anchor close to Ile aux Pommes, where we arrived the day before under a shy sun hidden behind clouds (it is important to specify that we could wake up at 9). Our three “cooks”

A Capstan Tale

Since we’ve boarded the EcoMaris 2 weeks ago as 12 stowaways following their path to freedom and responsibility, 5 scouts have taught us how to navigate and live with others, bringing us back to our “human-ity”.

Capstan Review

I completed the#capstanprogram in 2017, and I have to say I recommend it to anyone who wants to take a big step in their life. If you are ready to go through radical change, to return to your roots, to open up to a group of people, to be involved in that group, helping others

Capstan Review

“This trip was extremely humane and benevolent. I did it! Not without worry and apprehension, I dared confronting my fears in front of the crew and other participants. Being vulnerable and diving into the unknown. Confronting my anxiety and getting out of my comfort zone, once and for all. I did it… for that feeling
