All in all we have 12 bunks. Every double bedroom has its own bathroom and toilet. We try to keep the number of guests to 7 persons max. The STB front double bed and one stb single bunk is occupied by me and Stephie and Emilia, my baby daughter, in case they visit. Another single bunk is used as storage for the 2 Gennaker sails.

You can have your own double bunk if you pay the double cost-share of cause. The cockpit roof offers good sun protection. In good weather, we eat outside at the spacious cockpit table.

Frequently Asked Questions Sleeping - what should I bring myself? You should bring your own towel and fitted bedsheet (1,4m *2m) plus a linen (normally warm enough) to cover yourself. The nights in the tropics are warm. If not we have blankets on bord. You also get a cussion plus cover from us. How does the diving work? Does it cost extra? I love to find good dive and snorkelspots in regions were diving makes sence. I am divemaster and like to take interested crew with me on some underwater adventures. If you never dove before and like to try I can take you on a first try in shallow water. That does not mean that we are a diveboat and dive every day. We do discuss that with our crew and see what the preferences are. And even if we are all divers we will likely not dive more than once a day since the compressor is a limiting factor. Most of the divespots we visit are good freedive or snorkeling spots. I do not charge extra for the diving and do it as long it is fun for all of us. 4 tanks, weights, regulators and 3 BCDs (on tank with a fixed carriage for me) are on bord. If you have your own regulator and BCD bring it with you. Bring your own ABC (mask, snorkel, fins) equipement and weight belt. Bring your divecomputer or divewatch. Diving is on your own risk – my equipment is used and well serviced by myself. How does the shopping / cruising kitty work? Do I have additional costs? Provisioning: On Wild Too we would like to leave the provisioning up to the crew. Therefore I do not charge for a cruising kitty anymore. The crew sets up a cruising kitty for themself and manages the cooking and shopping. The skipper and Stephie if she visits goes free. We assist if needed. That way we hope to get the many different preferences food wise sorted out. If less than 3 crew joining and if the crew wishes we can do like on Wild One with a 60e/person cruising kitty and we do the basic provisioning for you. Fuel: I pay the fuel. No costs for you on that side. Clearance Fees, Visa: If we arrive in a new country costs like visa, custom or clearance fees will be split amongst the crew and paid from the cruising kitty. They change from country to country and are normally not more than 30e / person, in the more developed countries no fees at all. Marina fees: Generally we try to avoid marinas and prefer nice anchorages although we can visit marinas if the crew decides or if local regulations do require. (sometimes for check in or out or in natural parks or for safety reasons.) In this case its paid from the cruising kitty. Can I rely on the timeplan? Routes are planned with enough safety so that you can plan your flights accordingly. It always makes sence to keep your flights flexible in cayse something unforeseeable happens. In the past 8 years, 2 circumnavigations and 80000nm we managed to be on time. How can I feel well and clean on such a confined space? Pack away your goods inside, on deck and at the saloon table. Make your beds. Wash, dry and stowe away dishes – don ́t leave them in the sink. Clean stains of coffee and tea or red wine right away. Leave the bathroom in clean and dry condition. Avoid bringing sand onto the boat or into the dinghy. Dry your feet on steps of boat on provided rags. Close side hatches while sailing and top hatches at night to avoid the mist getting in. At night, stack the white outside cockpit cushions behind the table to avoid getting them wet. Can I charge my electronic goods – computers, mobile, music? Larger 220v devices such as computers, can be charged when the engine is running by plugging into 220v plugs, small devices such as phones, shavers, ipods can be charged any time. How does the toilet work? The toilets are standard manual Jabsco toilets. They don ́t like something else than what you have eaten. Toiletpaper goes over bord separated or in a plastic bag. After the blackwater is out flush at least 20 times to make sure all the blackwater leaves the system. How can we do with such little energy? The scarcest things on a passage are propane, fuel, electricity and water. Use fresh water thoughtful. Use a lid when you cook. Switch off lights on when not needed. We wash dishes with as little fresh water as possible – turn taps only half on, Cook only as much water needed for coffee or tea and only as much as needed. What is easily damaged on Wild Too and should be avoided to step onto? The solar panels, the deck hatches. Avoid leaning or stepping onto the saloon windows. Please do not sit on the cockpit or saloon table. Avoid putting metal or sharp stuff on the tables. (The veneer is only 1mm thick...). Hold onto the schrouds and the roof, not stanchion wires which are built light. What shoes are best for sailing? Non skid sole shoes preferably white to avoid black marks. When the deck is wet like first thing in the morning, your sailing shoes are better than barefoot which leaves marks. When sailing, it is a good idea to wear your shoes. I use Crocs as sailings shoes (the real ones do have good antiskid soles and dry fast) for safety reasons when it is wet to avoid slipping off into the water. Flip Flops and hiking- or joggingshoes will do on land. Safety rules and recommendations: Wild Too is fast cruising cat with larger than average boats sails. This implies more care and thoughtfulness in handling the boat and the sails. Whereas for example an accidental tschibe with a average cruising cat and a 60m2 mainsail might not cause a damage a tschibe with Wild Toos 90m2 main might cause a broken mast. The sheets and halyards have to carry significantly more load and have to be therefore all made of Spectra. The handling of those sheets needs extra care – winches and cam cleats have to be used properly. Safety rules: • Don’t access the area of the stern steps when sailing. You can fall over board easily, going up the roof only on areas with non skid paint – move sowly – don ́t step on solar panels. • Hatches: Mind open hatches on deck – you can fall into and get seriously hurt. Never open up hatches more than 45° since this causes additional danger. When doing sail manoeuvres all hatches have to be closed. Keep side hatches closed when sailing. Escape hatch must not be opened. • Ropes / winches: Never operate any ropes only by hand but always use the propper winch. Don ́t get your finger between rope and winch – they can be cut off! Use the flat palm of your hand to guide the rope on the winch (will be practiced on board). Operate the ropes slowly and carefully. • Sailing in the night: Always wear life west and life line (be attached to the boat permanently) and carry the emergency flashlight when alone on watch. Never do any sail manoeuvres or access the deck alone. Wake the skipper or any other crew. When in doubt of anything wake the skipper! • Stove / kitchen: Fire is the main reason for and the most fatal of boat accidents. Never leave the stove unattended when cooking. Make sure there is nothing burnable like anything with plastic, wooden goods etc, near the stove before operating it. • Keep lines and sheets always clear to avoid getting them stuck when they are needed – especially sheets and halyards. • Swimming while sailing: No swimming while the sails are on exempt we do a swim stop with no sails on and somebody watching you. • Shoes: Always wear your boat shoes when walking on a wet or humid deck. You also avoid dirt prints on deck that way. Things to bring with me: • Boat shoes • Land shoes (flip flops and sport or hiking shoes) • Head lamp • Sun crème • Sun protection for my head • Mosquito spray • Sunglasses (best polarised to spot the reefs when you are at the lookout) Fitted bedsheet 1,4m * 2m, Towel, linen to cover yourself at night
