A tack is usually faster than a jibe. But perhaps – depending on which way the wind is blowing – you won’t reach your destination without a jibe? How is the energy transition going? Do we also need the system jibe? Or is it all happening on the side anyway? Is it even possible to do one without the other? And who is actually taking care of it? There will be an exchange on board. And of course: beautiful sailing and the finest Danish South Seas. No previous knowledge necessary, just a desire for people, sailing and the topic.

We want to prepair the ship for a great season. Before the sailing can start again, the winter-building-stuff has to be removed and sailing-stuff needs to get on board. Therefore we need many helping hands who would like to help giving Lovis a good start into the season and we would be happy to see you there!

This week we would invite you to make Lovis spiffy again! There is no place on the ship that sea water and air can’t turn into a wonderful new rusty corner. Therefore, you are invited to put a stop to the corrosion with sweat and dexterity, and to give the ship a shiny seasonal coat of fresh new paint. We will try to finish the last works on the steel and reduce the optical defects, to start with a flawless beauty to new adventures.
We invite you to working together from 19.02. to 26.02. a few days on board to live, to laugh, to feast and also to make us comfortable and cozy.

We are looking forward to seeing you!

This week too is primarily about the wooden parts: masts, gaffs, booms etc are going to have most of our attention. If you are excited about works like sanding and painting, you are very welcome to help. Please contact sophia[ät]lovis[dot]de
During our rust and paint week Lovis will be a FLINTA* only space (womenLesbianNonbinaryTransAgender*). We invite all persons who define themselves as FLINTA* to craft, work and have a nice wintertime on the ship together. In addition to rust- and paint-works there will also be time for other smaller constructions on board. We want to share knowledge, learn from and with each other, build, laugh, cook, talk and spend a good time together at Lovis in Greifswald.
If you are interested please contact us: annika[ät]lovis[dot]de
Additional information will reach you via email.

The first rust and paint-week is for precise works on the steel. We want to derust spots that are hard to reach and make them stay clean for the next years. (Who preferes less precise working will find a suiting task, too).
If you want to take part please write to email@example.com .
At the beginning of 2023 we will derust the quick and dirty way and Lovis will get her paint finish. Details will follow.
To all musicians and people, who like making music, no matter which instrument, voice, or which style you prefer…! Make music and sail the Baltic Sea with strong winds in our sails. We want to offer a space for musical exchange and experiments for both bands and individual musicians on the open sea. Smaller and bigger groups can jam together, improvise or give a concert on the ship or onshore. There are lots of small port towns where we can make music everywhere -may it be a pedestrian zone or the harbour itself, individually or in groups. We can also use Lovis as a stage.
After the experience of the previous trips we would like to use the common space more and more for the exchange of skills and experiences – be it musically, in terms of content, or in terms of stage presence/performance etc.
In addition to the musical activities, sailing also has its place. Everyone joins in! On the journey, the sails are set and hoisted together with the ship’s crew, the ship is cleaned, the cooking is done and all the necessary tasks are carried out together.
Existing groups and individual musicians are all warmly welcome. Especially as an individual musician i’s important to be able to improvise together with other musicians. Your music and your instruments should fit to the ship and to the street (rather unplugged, portable and without huge technical equipment). Unfortunately the ship has no piano, but it offers enough space even for bigger instruments like a double-bass.
The cost contribution (includes food, harbour fee etc.) varies between 280 EUR and 420 EUR -depending on your appraisal.
If you are interested please write us a few lines about you and your music to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Have you ever heard that the female Chinese pirate Cheng I Sao commanded a fleet of 1500 ships with 80.000 pirates in the early 19th century? And that the two pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read both found piracy disguised as male pirates in the early 18th century and eventually found each other and went down in history as notorious buccaneers? No? Neither did we for a long time and that’s why we want to revive a bit of invisible (made) history together and use our beautiful ship to dive into the lives of different pirates together with you.
Our idea: We bring a few biographies of pirates and work on them together with different creative approaches. For example, we could use storytelling, theater, creative writing or photography. We will have some of this with us, and some of it will emerge in the course of the trip. And of course there will be a lot of sailing, laughing and feasting and we will see/ find out? together what we feel like doing.
In order to organize our trip together in the best possible way, we invite you in advance to 1-2 (of course voluntary) online preparation meetings. There we can collect ideas and plan the trip. You don’t have to bring any practical sailing experience.
All FLINTA* are invited, i.e. women, lesbians, inter-, non-binary-, trans- and agender-persons. Children are also welcome. We are looking forward to seeing you!
If you want to join us, please contact us at: email@example.com
*Trip fee: according to self-assessment 280-420 EUR (If this is difficult for you, please contact us and we will find a solution.)
