During this 52-day voyage the tall ship aims to visit a number of remarkable areas like the South Shetland Islands, the Antarctic Peninsula and the Weddell Sea with her many icebergs. This voyage is the perfect combination for those who wish to admire nature on some of the most remote places of the earth end experience the wide open ocean during the longer periods sailing at sea.
South Georgia & Tristan da Cunha
After your visit to Antarctica you will sail towards the sub-Antarctic island South Georgia with its spectacular scenery and outstanding wildlife and then on to the remotest inhabited island of the world: Tristan da Cunha.
Here, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, lives a small community on top of an active volcano. Your voyage ends in the South African capital Cape Town.
Your vessel is a sail training ship which means you will be mustered as voyage crew. But don’t worry, you’ll receive thorough safety training. Being part of the crew is definitely a major part of this amazing experience. And what’s great is that no prior sailing experience is necessary although it’s recommended for all off-shore experiences so you’re sure it’s the right kind of trip for you! This is an adventure open to everyone. While on deck you will work side by side with the permanent crew. Join the watch system, take the helm, assist with manoeuvres and navigation, make the weather observations, learn to furl the sails, and so much more. Lectures will be given regarding basic sail theory, watch responsibilities, line handling, navigation, and steering. You’ll be an old sea-dog in no time.
Your level of participation will partly depend on your interest level as well as your physical condition. Everything on board is done in a “Dutch” style which means no yelling or whistle blowing just good team work.
As you can imagine, a transatlantic crossing is a team effort. It won’t take long at all before your fellow voyage crew feel like family. And unless you think it’s all work – your vessel has plenty of places and opportunities to relax. There’s a lounge, library, deckhouse, and even a poker corner. Find your spot and kick back to feel the wind in your hair and dream big out on the wide blue ocean.
Places on this incredible voyage are extremely limited so get in touch if you’d like to be part of this amazing adventure.
