This short sea voyage offers the opportunity to really experience the life of a sailor. You will be a part of the crew and actively participate in the watch system. Before we will leave, the captain and crew will provide you with sailing and safety instructions. This is a mile maker, so we will not make stops during this voyage.
Quickly, everyone is adjusted to the movements of the ship, the life on board and the watches. It is simple and nice, waking up for yet another watch. Steer the ship, navigate, hoisting sails or taking them down. The ships cook makes sure there are lovely meals at set times. The cook is everyone’s best friend! Things that seem important on land, like your phone, checking your emails and Whatsapp messages, are not so important anymore. Instead, we look at the sunrises, sunsets, stars, birds and marine life.
You might be a little disappointed when we enter the civilized world again when we sail up the Elbe towards our final destination Hamburg.
A mile maker is a voyage that is meant to bring the ship from point A to point B as soon as possible. Depending on the weather it is possible that the duration of the mile maker is two days longer of shorter than expected. You pay a fixed price for your participation, regardless of the duration. This description is meant to give you an impression of how a voyage could look like. Depending on wind and weather conditions the travel plan could be altered, however we always try to sail as much as possible.
