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.

Before we leave, the crew will give you extensive instructions. You will learn all about sailing with a three-master, navigation, meteorology and maintenance during the voyage. On this first leg back to The Netherlands there are no stops.

We will be sailing in the area of the Trade Winds. This means good weather, but also a strong wind from the northeast. So, we will try to steer north as much as possible and sail clause-hauled.

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 March 30th. On the 31st of March you disembark at 9 o’clock unless you sail further with us to Rotterdam (link to Sal-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.
