Description

Digital detox sailing program

 
Definition: “A time where one refrains from using electronic devices”
 
Due to the fast paced society of today, you’re expected to be available at all times, and have everyone you know be available to you as well. 
 
You need a digital detox if:
– you cannot relax without your phone
– the thought of being ‘off the grid’ scares you
– you won’t be able to check your e-mails in time
– you reach for your phone constantly to check what’s new on social media
– you use your phone while you’re having a meal
– you cannot sleep without your phone next to you
 
As good as ‘digital detox’ sounds, it’s impossible to do it for a long period. Despite that, a 6 day rest from screens with Živko Matutinović will surely help. Just relax and interact with actual humans around you directly, and not by using electronics as crutches. 
 
As soon as you step aboard, Živko will confiscate your phone, and the route you are taking doesn’t have the best signal availability. We’ll visit Jabuka, Palagruza, Bisevo, Brusnik, Svetac, Susac… On the third day, we can check in via a landline from a post office or a payphone – yes, those still exist!
 
You’ll rack up a bunch of miles in your logbook, and travel back in time when humans were free, and not slaves of technology like today. 
 
If you’ve never tried to cleanse yourself of this plague, this unique 6-day sailing detox is just the thing you need.

Additional equipment: a book and a camera
Forbidden equipment: a mobile phone, a tablet, a laptop
