Voyage description

From the airport you travel by taxi to the village of Palmeira. The OOSTERSCHELDE is anchored here, just outside the harbour. The crew will pick you up with the dinghy. This trip offers you the opportunity to experience the real sailor’s life. You are part of the crew and you participate in the watch system.

This long voyage offers you the opportunity to experience the true life of a sailor. You will be part of the crew and participate in the watches. Before we leave, the crew will give you extensive instructions. We have an ocean crossing ahead of us, so we will not make many stops. During the first leg of the voyage we will still be under the influence of the trade wind. That means good weather, but also a firm wind coming from the northeast. We will try to steer upwind, as much north as possible.

If the circumstances are favourable, we might go to Madeira, but there is a bigger change we will go to Horta on the Azores. We will spend the day stocking up and for you this means you have time to explore the island. After this stop we will continue our way to Sète. We will leave the Tradewinds behind. C Close to the Azores there is a chance to spot whales, but also later on we won’t be alone. We will see more and more other ships and even this far out at sea there are still birds. We might see moonfishes, dolphins and other sea life.

Close to the Azores there is a good chance of seeing whales. So far out at sea there are even many birds around us and every now and then we might see a moonfish, dolphins or other sea creatures.

We expect to arrive in Horta on April 11th. The next day, you disembark at 09 o’clock, unless you sail with us to Rotterdam.

General

A mile-maker is a voyage that takes the ship from A to B in as short a time as possible. Depending on the weather, a mile-maker can take one or two days longer or shorter. You pay a fixed price for participation, regardless of the duration of the voyage.

Level 3

These trips are only suitable for fit and experienced sea travellers. During a long voyage or crossing, there are few options for entering a port and medical care is not available within 24 hours.

 

OOSTERSCHELDE wants to be accessible to the widest possible audience, but you must realize that you are making a voyage aboard a seagoing sailing ship. This requires more of your physical ability than a daily walk. One trip is more challenging than the other. With the different levels we provide an indication of what kind of trip it is. If you are unsure whether a trip is suitable for you it is important that you contact OOSTERSCHELDE for advice.
