Duration: 21 days
View Dates

Join a guest crew on an incredible voyage from Patagonia to Polynesia under sail on this Pacific Ocean sailing adventure.

Join a beautiful 100+ year old ex-herring drifter that was lovingly restored with a full refit in 2021, and set sail between Patagonia and Polynesia! The route is incredible and they’ve got berths available for guest crew to join them.

Setting off from the Lake District of Chile

You set sail from Puerto Montt in the Lake District of Chile. The waterfront offers a beautiful view of both the colorful city as well as the bay. Although sheltered from the Pacific Ocean, it is only a day sail away before you are out on the blue water. Depending on weather and wind, a plan will be made for the first few days. This may include one or more stops in the Lake District.

Juan Fernandez Islands + Robinson Crusoe Island

Setting sail from Chilean mainland, this voyage will include a stop on the Juan Fernandez island group. A small group of Islands situated 550 miles North West of Puerto Montt. With a prevailing wind along the coast of Southerly or South Westerly winds, this sail should take around 3/4 days maybe 5. The biggest island of the island group is Robinson Crusoe Island. There are several sheltered anchorages possible, depending on wind. The smaller islands are hard to acces with bigger swell, so a visit to any other island depends on weather.

On to Rapa Nui

After this sail will be set for Easter Island, Rapa Nui. A crossing of 1650 miles. This should take around 10 days.

Rapa Nui, the island known for the Moai, the standing heads, tropical, wonderful, somewhere you may only go once!

Trip notes


€5.250, price 15-25 years €4.725

Min age



There are 6 cabins, each for 2 persons. The cabins are situated in the middle of the ship, which makes them as stable as possible.

Your bunk is inside one of the two person cabins. Your bed will be either the high or the lower bed of a bedbunk. All beds are over 80cm wide and 2 meters long. Each bed has a reading light for the evening hours.

The cabins are ensuite. In a wet cell you will find a shower, of course with hot and cold water, and a toilet, that when possible flushes with outside water. In the cabin itself you will find a fountain and mirror. Your clothing can be stored in closet and your bag or suitcase can be stored under the bed.


On board the crew we do not work with a set menu. The menu is developed on board with influences of her surroundings. We try and cook with as many local fresh products as possible, this means that around the Canary Islands we eat a lot of tapas, peppers, plantanas (banana’s). In Brazil we eat a lot of fresh fruit, cow meat and rice. And around the North Sea, when it gets colder you will find some ‘stamppot’ (Dutch mashes potatoes specialty) with smoked sausage on your plate.

During a longer stay on board you will hardly ever see the same dish come by. Most of our meals are served with a salad or fruit on the side. During longer trips we take good care of our vegetables and fruit to ensure that you will enjoy fresh food as long as possible.

If you have an allergy or cannot eat certain food, please contact us with your dietary concerns. We provide a healthy menu were you will have enough choice.

We do not provide a vegan diet and on certain voyages we do not provide a lactose intolerant or gluten free diet.

We do provide sweet, savoury, hot and sometimes somewhat fat delicious food, but there is always a healthy choice next to it.

Who is this trip for?

No sailing experience needed, all instruction given on board by the crew to enable you to take part in all aspects of sailing the ship.

Tour operator

An old Herring drifter (Logger) built in 1915, the ship is 28 meters long over deck (38 meters overall) and takes 16 trainees on her voyages. No previous sailing experience is needed and experienced and new sailors love her equally.

A family of four professional sailors have owned and run this vessel since 2006 and sail her with true passion. Built for the North Sea she’s a fast sailor and her rigging is as traditional as it gets.

We love that the boat’s appearance is kept as traditional as possible yet combined with modern techniques and equipment. Everyone on board is part of the informal sail training program that is designed to get the best out of everyone whether you join for 2 days or a longer ocean crossing.

On September 13th she and her crew were the first traditional sailing ship to complete the North West Passage after Roald Admundsen with his ship Goya in 2013.
