Back to the Netherlands! In this port to port delivery trip you will help to bring the Wylde Swan from Scotland back to the Netherlands. You will spend 6 days on board, living the life of a sailor – setting and trimming the sails, steering, standing on lookout, etc. You don’t have to have any sailing experience to join this early autumn trip and enjoy crossing the North Sea together with your fellow trainees and professional crew. The hours mentioned are the sailing times, you can come on board the night before the trip and disembark the morning of the 28th.
A milemaker is a voyage that is meant to bring the ship from point A to point B as soon as possible. These sea voyages offer the opportunity to experience the life of a real sailor. During a milemaker you are part of the crew and you participate in the watch system. The crew will show you around and explain everything on board. During a milemaker we will make very few stops. Depending on the weather conditions the schedule can be altered, but we will always sail as much as possible.
