Sustainable cruising

The Ya sails around the world without using fossil fuels. No diesel, no gas, no petrol. On-board life is energy neutral and very comfortable. Sustainable cruising means to us: sailing globally, living locally. We buy, eat, live and act where we anchor.
With the locals we exchange information and methods about sustainability and living self supporting . Whatever we learn from them, we share with you on our blog. In exchange, we deliver a clean wave in all corners of the globe.
