• A part of the locker can be locked with a small padlock that you bring with you or purchase on board.
The shop on board
In the small shop you can buy some snacks, chocolate, soft drinks, toiletries and souvenirs.
Mobile phone and power
The mobile phone has no coverage when we are in open sea. Should a situation require contact with people ashore, the ship and the office will assists you. Power supply on board is 220 VAC.
It’s not possible to wash your clothes on board. If your voyage are longer than one week, you may contact the sergeant in order to use the ships washing machine.
Seasickness and drugs
Remember to notify the sergeant and watch leader on board if you use seasick medication or seasick bandage. When using seasickness medication you are not allowed to enter the rig within a certain time after use, 6 hours after the last pill taken and 12 hours after the seasick bandage is removed.
When at sea/sailing the ship is “dry,” i.e. totally alcohol restricted.
