A variation on the May Day ritual of dancing around the maypole happens frequently on a sailing vessel like Pioneer with heavy sails, accompanied by rhythmical chanting that assists in raising what powers the ship. To coin another blog neologism . . . sweating together = “sweather,” as in Let’s sweather. Hmm… has possibilities.

The may pole takes a variety of forms, but it’s about cooperation; no one has to dance alone.

Book a spot on a sailing ship for Tuesday aka Beltane and dance.
