"Don't be afraid of being slow, only of being stopped"
– Blaise Hoffmann –
The protection of marine fauna and flora is important to us; this is why the majority of our activities are directly linked to ecology. The aim is to raise awareness of ways to preserve the environment. All on a sailboat!
Collaborative sailing, training, teamwork, sustainable development, all aspects that are important to us.
A motivated team is the engine of a successful collaboration.
Each member brings their knowledge and skills to participate in the smooth running of activities, live a motivating experience and come back with a new perspective. Better collaborate on a daily basis and effectively propel new projects. Learning is guaranteed.
Share your skills and much more
Exchange is a fundamental value of Vitaminsea.blue, which is why each person finds their place and has the opportunity to share their know-how through the various activities carried out.
Lived experiences lead to enrichment not only at a personal level, but also within the association.

WHO IS BEHIND THE PROJECT?
From a somewhat crazy idea … to the completion of a project!
Certified adult trainer, Skipper & Diving Instructor.
Balthazar is a computer scientist by trade, he worked for more than ten years in a humanitarian emergency organization. This multicultural, international and demanding environment has developed his ability to adapt to the unknown through experience. At the same time, he became an adult Trainer as well as a training designer. Finally, by becoming a Diving Instructor and Skipper, he was able to develop his teaching, risk analysis and management skills. From then on, he has organized collaborative, as well as training cruises. Blessed with a sense of leadership, he has a great capacity for adaptation and shows ease in decision-making, and group management in the face of conflict and stress.
IT & Skipper
Yorick is also a computer scientist by trade and career, but it is on the water that his full potential unfolds. Passionate about sailing both on lakes and at sea, what animates him the most is sharing his skills within a group. A group that he will have taken care to form as much on the water as around a good meal. He can be found easily at the helm of the boat as at the back of the cabin, recharging the batteries of all that is electronic. Yorick has already participated in and organized seven sea voyages on sailboats 30 to 50 feet long. He is arguably the most important person on board.
Certified adult Trainer & Environmental Engineer
David has a diverse and varied professional background. IT, organic farming, environmental education, adult training: he has defined himself professionally by taking into account his interests and passions. The common point is undoubtedly the sharing, the transmitting of knowledge, and encounters with others. Beyond his professional life, the desire to go off the beaten track has always inspired him. For him, innovation is more than just an attraction, it is a necessity, a state of mind. Following the many training courses he has taken and the questioning of the learning processes, he is passionate about the concept of designing trainings based on experience and practice. Passionate and committed, he has exceptional listening skills combined with a pragmatic nature.
Collaborative navigation is learning how to navigate together.

Il semblerait que ce lien ne mène encore null part…
Désolé capitaine, on y travaille d’arrache pied..
En attendant, voici un joli lever de soleil… sur la gauche.
Si tu ne veux rien rater, inscris-toi vite à la mailing list, d’ici là, on aura compris comment ça fonctionne ????
The purchase of the boat represents the largest part of the budget, more than 80%.
The convoyage includes transportation of the boat to the Mediterranean and to its emplacement, while waiting till it can go to sea.
The equipment includes a new mainsail, 1 dinghy and all safety equipment (life raft, life jackets, VHF, AIS etc.)
The administrative costs are made up of registering the boat, full coverage insurance and marina fees before departure.
To this we have added a special environmental budget which includes :
- Solar panels, a wind turbine and a hydro generator to produce clean energy
- Diving equipment to observe the marine fauna and flora
- High performance batteries to store as much energy as possible
- A water maker to be more autonomous in its consumption
A quoi s'attendre?
Les membres qui embarquent à bord sont vivement encouragés à participer à toutes les activités nécessaires à la navigation sur un voilier dont voici quelques exemples :
- Les manœuvres
- La conduite
- La réflexion sur le tracé d’une route
- La cuisine à bord
- Le ravitaillement
- La documentation du voyage
Pour aller plus loin, les participants peuvent demander qu’on leur assigne un rôle pendant une période définie. Ceci ayant pour but de renforcer leur apprentissage sur un aspect particulier de la navigation en vue par exemple de transmettre leur savoir à leur prochain.
Les membres sont aussi invités à s’intégrer à des activités variées que l’on pourrait considérer comme secondaires. Celles-ci diffèrent selon la profession et les centres d’intérêts des autres membres de l’équipage. De la même façon, il est grandement apprécié que les participants puissent partager leurs passions liés ou non à la navigation.
Régulièrement, un débriefing est organisé afin que chacun puisse s’exprimer sur son intégration à bord et sur ses désirs pour les jours suivants.
Vitaminsea.blue propose dans la mesure du possible des activités variées telles que snorkeling, découverte de la région, exploration de lieux historiques, plongées sous-marine, excursions en kayak (ou stand up paddle) et randonnées à terre. Plus d’info dans le programme spécifique au séjour.
