Last weekend of October the official book launch of book OCEAN NOMAD will take place on and around the classic sailing vessel ‘Grace of Aberdeen’ in Lanzarote! A grande meet-up of ocean adventurers, (aspiring) sailors, change-makers, and press.

About the Book

OCEAN NOMAD – the Complete Atlantic Sailing Crew Guide – How to catch a ride & make a difference for a healthier ocean

Packed with practical advice and stories, the 400 pages ocean travel guide, Ocean Nomad, persuades and informs the adventure traveller to go from the idea of “someday I would like to go on a sailing trip”, to sipping a coconut on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean celebrating the achievement. First in the Ocean Nomad ocean adventure travel guide series, the Atlantic Ocean edition inspires to get out there, explore and discover the ocean while making a positive difference. Ocean Nomad encourages an alternative and nature-minded way of adventure travel.  In addition to practical tips, information, photos and stories, Ocean Nomad includes +75 actionable takeaways on how sailors can make a positive difference for the ocean.

The book is written with the aim to make people excited about the ocean, connect people to the ocean, so accordingly they start caring more, and ACTING more.

We have no time to lose when it comes to saving our ocean.

Here is the official Press Release.
