Join our crew

The crew works in three shift watches. There’s a red watch (midday to four PM and midnight to four AM), a white watch (four to eight PM and AM) and a blue watch (eight PM to midnight and eight AM to midday). You can indicate your preference for a particular watch.

Under the supervision of the helmsman, you will join the quartermaster and a party of two (or more) crew.

Our crew will be happy to teach you the basics of sailing on a cross-rigged three-master and explain the various sailing manoeuvres and the names of the sails and rigging.


Meals and accomodation

Meals are taken together with the crew in the clipper’s long room and the captain offers regular updates on the ship’s progress, informing you of how many sea miles are left to sail and other nautical points of interest.

There are 14 cabins available for 1, 2 or 3 passengers.

Travel stories

The endless space at sea, the rhythm of red, white and blue watch duty, the dolphins swimming along the side, sometimes even whales to see ... it will make you forget everyday life. Two guests joining on an adventurous crossing earlier like to share their experience with you!
