The purpose of Polonica is to sail, learn, get experience and see exiting places. Do not intend to have many people on board, as I am trying to have interesting people joining. I would prefere to sail with university students, ex. Students of biology og medicine.
I am trying to keep the boat primitive and simple, as my experience tells me that "everything you do not have do not break"! I do not think that the crewmembers' joining me is on vacation they are travelling. Therefore it is my principle that I would rather have crewmembers signing up for at least a 3 months period.
The next 3 to 4 years I have set off to rebuilding and improvement of the ship therefore there will be periods with little sailing. In those periods the ship will be under construction and a mess, so in those periods I prefer to be alone on board or have people with some craftsman's skills.
I have a principle of being free and independent of crew payments, what I receive this way is for making life on board more pleasant. The basis of the Polonica economy will be my 6 months a year working. Furthermore I do not have the need for having people on board, and if there is somebody who would like to join the journey will it be on the terms I set.
My dream is to sail to Antarctica, Alaska, Greenland and Svalbart, therefore I might change the ship into a expedition ship.
