Insights for the
ocean's best.


We are developing 6+2 themes for our Ocean Decade Program and Circumnavigation voyage. These themes are in various forms the red threads throughout our workshops wherever we will facilitate them: On-dock expos, seminars, inspirational get-togethers in formal and non-formal sessions onboard, think tanks, and team-building activities along our voyages. They will, and are meant to, evolve as we sail together with our guesting crews, but are in their origin based on the years of experiences and research findings we have collected in our Sailing4Science projects worldwide up until now.

THEMES: Oceanography and Life-Styles

Arriving with a sailboat to harbors and marinas in cities, small coastal villages or remote islands always generates curiosity and attention from the locals. It is a meant-to-be opportunity to share insights, knowledge, stories, cultures, ideas, and experiences together. We have throughout the years learned to use those occasions as great opportunities for us to share what we have to bring to the ones who want to listen. From that we have developed six workshop themes that have been especially well-received:


The workshop based on the UN Ocean Decade 2030 Program:
 Co-Creating a hopeful vision in a triple planetary crisis.

– Co-creation & all-inclusive
– A hopeful vision
– One Ocean
– Climate change
– Pollution impact 
– Bio-diversity loss


A workshop bringing in the latest insights and experiences from the electrification of harbors, marinas, ferries, ships, and boats.

– Fossil fuel out – electric in?
– Realities today
– Infrastructural demands
– New generations’ demands
– Local status and opportunities


A workshop/expo sharing hands-on everyday lifestyle alternatives on how to turn the tap off when it comes to waste and toxic chemicals.

– Zero Waste and the 5 R’s
– Breaking the habits
– Food and packaging
– Up-cycling as an idea
– What are the toxins to avoid
– Going back to the future


A workshop about how we can use the ocean smarter and more sustainable and displaying new Blue Foods.

– The Blue Food Wave
– Vegan or non-vegan
– Fresh and healthy
– Easy to grow, easy to cook
– Sea farming on your shores
– Master Chefs going Blue


A workshop allowing city stakeholders and politicians to  learn about and discuss local opportunities in a free format :
– City to Sea connection
– Oxygen, sour, waste, losses
– Co-creation along the shores
– Scientific status locally
– Opportunities ahead


A workshop inviting the visitor to become part of the solution – by actively joining citizen science projects or other programs.

– Everybody can help– everybody is needed
– Try out to be a scientist
– Get connected to the sea
– Start where you stand
– Join the S4S-movement

THEMES: Think Tank and Team-Work

Hrimfare offers ideal facilities for groups that want to meet for insights, teambuilding, privacy, or adventures. We provide safe, comfortable, and "oceanic" facilities onboard in combination with suitable locations ashore or accommodation along our voyages and expeditions. We combine sailing with scientific sampling collection and allow groups to meet in an Informal and friendly manner, cook food together, develop ideas, focus on team building, or just celebrate something together. Hrimfare is a living lab vessel with a built-in oceanic purpose.
