Catch a sailboat ride across the Ocean
Jump on board and make a difference
Press Release Ocean Nomad
October 10 – 2017. For Immediate Release
No boat? No budget? No sailing experience? No problem! Now there’s a guide explaining the ins and outs on how (and how not) to hop on a boat for a sail across the Atlantic. 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. After reading the book excuses will be thrown overboard for good and action modus is on.
27th and 28th of October book Ocean Nomad will be launched on the classic wooden Sailing Vessel Grace in Arrecife & Puerto Calero, Lanzarote, Canary Islands. The book launch event aka pontoon party will be a gathering of (aspiring) sailors, travellers, adventurers, ocean savers and the curious. The 28th of October S/V Grace will sail south to Puerto Calero for the Ocean Film Festival where a screening will be hosted of the Caribbean shot movie Vanishing Sail, to not only help revive the traditional wooden boat building, but also tourism in the Caribbean, that needs encouragement more than ever.
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. “This ambitious guide book is the spark that will ignite your sense of adventure and provoke your compassion to create a better world,” says Monique Mills Captain & Ocean Advocate. Ocean Nomad encourages an alternative and nature-minded way of adventure travel. The Caribbean edition is yet in the making.
Called the “doyenne of sailboat hitchhikers!” by captain Lyon, Suzanne emphasizes that traversing an ocean by sea is not just about finding a boat. Finding the right boat, careful investigation and preparation are what makes it a fun, safe, and meaningful ocean adventure. Book Ocean Nomad explains what to be mindful of. In addition to practical tips, information and stories, Ocean Nomad includes +75 actionable takeaways on how sailors can make a positive difference for the ocean. “As ocean nomads, we can ‘just’ cross an ocean and have a memorable adventure, but we can do more! The ocean brings us so much. As fanatic users, we are responsible for bringing life back into the ocean. We have no time to lose when it comes to preserving the ocean” says Suzanne.
Join the book launch pontoon party: 27th and 28th of October in Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain.

With Ocean Nomad Suzanne aims to help adventure-seekers experience the magic of the high seas, to broaden horizons, and encourage positive change for the ocean.”When people have felt that connection to the ocean, they’ll be more triggered to care and act,” she says. As the ‘Oceanpreneur,’ she creates ocean adventure travel content, trips, and expeditions to excite and inform others about ocean travel and conservation.
