Winter break

We will take a winter break on the construction of our proa and continue in spring 2020! Hopefully we will get her sailing next summer.

In the meantime, Henrik will support Waan Aelon in Majel (the source of our inspiration) with the implementation of low carbon shipping and sustainable boat building in the Marshall Islands.

In a three month workshop for local boat builder he will construct prototypes of sustainable lagoon crafts and show the locals how to work with epoxy. The course will be held in close collaboration with Rob Denney from HarryProa.
