On these stages, you get a real taste of the uniqueness of life aboard a tall ship on the open ocean and the unforgettable experience of taking the helm to steer hundreds of tons of majestic sailing ship.
After departure, you can settle into the unique rhythm of life at sea and enjoy intimate contact with both the ocean and your co-sailor colleagues from around the world. Sea Norway voyages promise an extraordinary experience of slow-life and endlessly changing oceanic vistas.
Ocean Sailing stages are three full days at sea and often include a mini-regatta, where we sail the three sister vessels flat out.
As a co-sailor, you may find yourself taking the helm at night, watching whales pass by while the others sleep and the only sound is the wind in the sails. No two days will be the same. One could see you setting & trimming sails, steering, navigating and learning the ways of the open sea; the next you might spend swaying in a hammock with the sun in your face and a good book, taking photos or discussing the ways of the world with your fellow adventurers over a cup of coffee.
Welcome to a voyage of discovery aboard our three ships, Christian Radich, Wylde Swan and Gulden Leeuw, three of the last great “windjammers” of the last century still in active service. Christian Radich, with a main mast towering above 37 meters, and more than a thousand meters of sail spun on almost 9000 meters of rope, is truly a majestic sight. Its sister ships, the Dutch vessels Wylde Swan and Gulden Leeuw are equally impressive. Swan is a spectacularly sleek schooner with two 40-meter masts and oversized sails. Leeuw is one of the world’s largest three-mast topsail schooners.
Join Sea Norway for exhilaration and relaxation, exploration and adventure. Welcome to an oceanic experience of a lifetime.
