A six-week voyage at sea is rudely disrupted by the corona virus. This is the reality for 25 Dutch teenagers and a crew team on board the Wylde Swan.
The 25 high school students, 4 teachers, a ship’s doctor and 12 crew members have been sailing in the Caribbean for almost 3 weeks. The students are on board with a special program, in which Dutch students follow their school work on board the sailing ship for six weeks.
Christophe Meijer of Masterskip: “It’s great on board. Nobody is ill here. There is a great sense of hygiene, so no one will probably get ill. But the world changes by the hour”.
