S/V Karaka
Karaka is a 53 ft black steel ketch. In an effort to share, learn and grow, the boat is operated as a non profit cooperative, welcoming as crew anybody motivated to join with an open mind. The crew is usually but not always composed of a healthy mix of nomadic dreamers, musicians, philosophers, anarchists, wanderers and assorted non-conforming individuals, as well as less radical people, regardless of nationality, age, gender, worldview, background, or financial status. Attitude is what matters.

Karaka is now back in Asia. After 12 years and over 65 000 nautical miles, we closed the loop, and confirmed that the Earth is round. Check the map below, and also the new circumnavigation timeline page : Circumnavigation.

The plan at this stage is to get to Northern Borneo where we will haul the boat out in a boatyard in Kudat, Malaysia, for the rest of 2017. The idea is to restore Karaka to its previous splendor, and fix all the little things that need fixing after this quite epic circumnavigation.

Anybody willing to come and give us a hand is more than welcome to drop by, and if you can not make it in person, any donation toward the refit funds will be hugely appreciated. Please check the donation page for more details: Support Us .
