Come Aboard

The Green Coconut Run is a cooperative sailing adventure, with membership by referral. You’re also welcome to join us for a trip as a non-member to gain your referral.

Visiting crew members fly down to join the boat for different legs (1-4 weeks) and contribute with a boat fee and galley fee to cover voyaging costs.

See our planned 2019 routes in French Polynesia (Tuamotus & Society Islands). You can come aboard the boat as a:

  • NON-MEMBER. 
    • Private trips only (min 2pp, max 4pp). Come aboard for a week or two and try out the experience, and gain your referral for membership. Check our Route page; ask for a detailed schedule and pricing by emailing us at greencoconutrun@gmail.com 
  • CO-OP MEMBER.
    • Shared trips available (1-4pp). Members get 30% off, have access to early seabird discounts, work trade, and yearly dividends. Check the Co-op page (password needed) for details.

JOIN THE CO-OP!

Interested in joining our adventure sailing co-op?  Alright! Here’s how it works.

  1. Send us an email requesting membership, to greencoconutrun@gmail.com. Please mention if there’s a member referring you.
  2. Send us an outdoorsy profile pic for your Crew Bio and pls answer the following:
    • Tell us about yourself. What’s your experience sailing? Interest in ocean sports and wilderness adventuring? A bit about your background and career?
    • Where would you like to go (see our Route), and for how much time?
    • How you heard about us, who referred you? Why do you think you’d make a good fit as a member of our sailing co-op?
  3. There is a $200 initiation fee, and we ask that all members consider signing up to Become a Patron of Green Coconut Run.

 

Benefits of Co-op Membership

  • Own a voyage — without “owning the boat”.  It’s a millionaire’s lifestyle for pennies on the dollar… You get to participate in the trip of a lifetime without any of the risks & high costs.
  • Bring a Guest — you can bring a non-member guest at your co-op rate.
  • Reduced Rates — “Early Seabirds” get super reduced rates by paying before the season (ie. January), or come with affordable “Just Show Up” rates. Details in the Co-op only page.
  • Work trade option — co-op members can reduce your boat time costs up to 50% with work trade.
  • Reserve your spot on the voyage — Co-op members can access our Detailed Schedule; general public only sees Our Route page.
  • Pro Deals & Gifts — you’ll get access to our Pro Deals and receive our yearly holiday letter with gifts!
  • Offer input in our yearly survey — “Where do you want Aldebaran to go?” Pick your dream destination and help build the voyage.

 

Responsibilities of Crew Members

  • We’re a community ship — sailing on Aldebaran is a participatory experience! Our atmosphere of sharing makes it special.
  • Embrace your role as a Crew Member — everyone is helping make this dream happen — whether by sharing things you love (music, skills, knowledge), being motivated to do activities (do your sailing shift, snorkel, SUP) or helping out (cooking, cleaning, fixing stuff)
  • Courier gear to the boat — all crew members are requested to travel bring down items to the boat (or take items back to U.S.) — this helps us keep costs low. It might be anything from peanut butter to nuts & bolts!
  • Good Food is happiness — everyone takes turns cooking, please bring a few recipe options to share when your turn comes!
  • HARVEST STOKE — above all, we promote an environment with a positive attitude, kind communication, and enthusiasm for life.

PS.  Wondering what our trimaran is like?  Check out the Boat page. Please note that Aldebaran has 3 double beds, which means it is best if you come as a pair.  If you are on your own and want to guarantee a private bunk, please request space for two people (saving the second spot is half price).
