Valery VasilevskiyWhen the ships arrive in ports, the sailors are welcomed by a crowd of people. In the ports there are free concerts and entertainment for the whole family, crew parade which all trainees can attend, as well as award ceremonies. After three days of celebration, the festivals usually end with a grand firework, before the ships prepare for new voyages. We recommend that you stay for some of the festivities. You can stay one night on board the ship before or after arrival in the Tall Ships Race-ports. Beyond this, we recommend that you enter the port’s own website for further details on arrangements and accommodation.

IMG_9044-kOne of my favourite moments on the Christian Radich happened whilst we were all on duty waiting for our next orders. It was quite cold so whilst waiting we decided to all start singing loudy and clapping and even managed to get the crew involved. We then decided to teach people The Waves of Tory (an Irish dance) which turned out to be a great way to warm up. The sing songs were hilarious and a great way of bonding. I know I have made some lifelong friends on the voyage and I wouldn’t have changed any part of it for the world. Thank you Christian Radich for letting me join you on such a fantastic adventure!

A beautiful voyage along the norwegian coast, including fjords. It was spectacular. I did not have much expectations about sailing in the open sea, but the captain (Jens-Joachim) did his best and made out good wind and nice sailing areas, so our beautiful ship was often enough under full sails. It was my 15th journey with Christian Radich and so… just let me have it again.

Beat Schenk joined Christian Radich on Cruise in Company from Ålesund – Kristiansand in 2015

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe got everything, sun,rain,storm, no wind, wind from the wrong or right direction, refreshing temperatures around 12 degrees, phantastic food!, physical (pull the rope) and mental (memorize the rope) training, full body input and increasing heart beat at the helm, meditation on lookout duty at sundawn, live Scottish Music in Ullapool, wonderful watch comrades, good talks and dedicated watch leaders. All this in the friendly warm atmosphere created by the crew made this voyage again one to unwind and gather new joy of life. Thank you!

Also a big thank to Emily who has worked as a volunteer on board, she was responsible for lay-out and illustrations. We mail the handbook to all trainees who ask for it. You can read it or download it.

Sailing with Christian Radich means meeting new, interesting people, learning how to cooperate and coexist in – sometimes – tough conditions, and still hava a hell of a good time! If you sail around the Canary Islands, as I did, you will also have the pleasure of meeting schools of dolphins who play in the Atlantic waves, enjoy nights with beautiful stars & bright moon, as well as lots of good food and good fun!

If you love sailing, if you love the sea, sail with Christian Radich! An adventure and a memory for life!

Kerstin Otterstål sailed with us around the Canaries in January 2015

While voyages and Tall Ships Races this year still is clear in mind, we have started planning next year`s voyages. It is most likely Christian Radich will sail Tall Ships Races again in 2016. The schedule will be ready by late September/October.

Race 1: Antwerp -Lisbon: July 10 – 22
Race 2: Lisbon – Cadiz: July 25 – 28
Cruise in Company: Cadiz – A Coruna: July 31 – August 11

Welcome on board next year as a trainee both to newcomers and to you who have sailed with us before!

Mai tokt 2015A fantastic all-around experience exceeding all expectations. The crew and trainees alike  made this experience at sea on a tall ship memorable, and fantastically fun. This was, and would be, a wonderful life experience for anyone seeking sea air and a self challenge aboard a historic vessel surrounded by enthusiastic companions and a knowledgeable, welcoming crew. Plus, the food is great!

We are looking forward to welcome 50 maritime students as trainees this winter. They are all maritime students at Norwegian Colleges. The ship is headed for southern waters and the students will get practical skills on board. For Christian Radich, this is important because we get a basis for further operation all year round.

Vladimir Guerrero remembers his voyage and SAIL 90 (now Sail Amsterdam) in 1990. On a sailship, there is no big changes in 25 years. The wind, the sea and the feling is the same, even though the crew changes. Well, some of the trainees keep coming back year after year. Read Vladimirs story: Radich 1990

Whenever I book to sail with Christian Radich I get excited and this continues right up to getting on board.  The first few days of getting used to the ship again (sometimes I am a bit seasick) I wonder “why am I doing this”, sometimes I think – “this will be my last voyage”. BUT each time, about half way through the journey I know why I am doing it and on the last day when we all muster on deck and hear from the Captain I know I will sail again with the Christian Radich.  It is one of the best and most exciting sailing experiences anyone who loves the sea can have…

Don Tomlinson has been trainee on board several times

My voyage with the Christian Radich was a succes. It was not my first and for sure not the last voyage with her! I always join the 4-8 watch which I love. The education in sailing the ship was nearly perfect. All crewmembers were always friendly and open for questions. The ship itself is in an marvellous condition. The food is realy very good, thanks to the cooks aboard.
I thought about sailing with another ship this year. Fortunately my decision goes back to the Radich because I wanted to meet some people again.
For the future it is for sure…there is only one ship to go: CRISTIAN RADICH
I want to thank the whole crew and all who cares about the ship for the hospitality, education, maintenance, donor and so on.
Thank you also to all Trainees with whom I sailed With on the race between Harlingen and Fredrikstad. We made the 3rd Place, on Race 2 from Bergen to Esbjerg the Radich wins hopefully.
I can’t wait to sail with her on TSR 2015, Jens Grothusen

It’s was the beautiful summer evening in Hardanger Fjord, when we seen the Windjammer movie. the feeling was so indescribable, to see the dream of my childhood 55 years ago, mixed whit the reality now a board the same ship. For me it was like a norwegian  “Summernight Dream” in a warm heartily atmosphere in a wonderful scenery.

Practicalities

The ship can accommodate 80 trainees – everyone can sail with Christian Radich – and they do! Each trainee is assigned to one of three watch teams which have 4 hours on duty and 8 hours off – both day and night. Among the duties are lookout, fire-and safety patrols, sail manoeuvres and steering – all performed under professional supervision. The sail manoeuvres can be demanding, but spectacular. Entering the rig is the ultimate event to many, but it is not mandatory.

The trainees sleep in hammocks or bunk beds in two comfortable, air-conditioned dormitories below deck. The ship has modern shower facilities and serves three excellent meals per day. A small slope chest is also available where souvenirs, toiletries and snacks can be purchased.

Appropriate clothing is necessary, including rainwear and warm and windproof clothes.  Further information regarding what to bring along will be sent out with the trainee handbook after registration.

The age limit is 15 years (on departure date), or 12 years when sailing with parents on non-race legs . If you are over 70 years of age, we need a health certificate from your doctor. You must be healthy enough to participate in the work on board.

First and foremost, it is important to note that the arrival in Bergen July 24 is changed to 1500. We hope this will not affect your travelling from Bergen. The change is because the three Norwegian sail ships will be the last to arrive in Bergen in a separate parade. We think this will be a great experience!

Stop along the way
During cruise-in-company we usually make two stops. We will decide the first stop along the way, either together with other ships, or we choose a nice place to drop anchor.

July 22, we will make an overnight stop in Skudeneshavn on the southern tip of Karmøy. Skudeneshavn is a charming city with a lot of tradition. In earlier centuries vessels from Skudeneshavn could be found on all oceans around the world. The story goes back to 1808, when herring fisheries where booming and what we now call Old Town grew. Around 130 houses and warehouses are preserved. We have organized a walking tour for our trainees while Christian Radich will make a fjord tour for the city on the evening of July 22.

We believe this will be an experience for our trainees!

Tall Ships Races 2014 starts in Harlingen, The Netherlands. Fredrikstad is the destination for the first race. Cruise in Company goes from Fredrikstad to Bergen and the last race goes to Esbjerg, Denmark. We have also found some exciting voyages before and after the Tall Ships Races. Here you see all the voyages.

Practicalities

The ship can accommodate 80 trainees – everyone can sail with Christian Radich – and they do! Each trainee is assigned to one of three watch teams which have 4 hours on duty and 8 hours off – both day and night. Among the duties are lookout, fire-and safety patrols, sail manoeuvres and steering – all performed under professional supervision. The sail manoeuvres can be demanding, but spectacular. Entering the rig is the ultimate event to many, but it is not mandatory.

The trainees sleep in hammocks or bunk beds in two comfortable, air-conditioned dormitories below deck. The ship has modern shower facilities and serves three excellent meals per day. A small slope chest is also available where souvenirs, toiletries and snacks can be purchased.

Appropriate clothing is necessary, including rainwear and warm and windproof clothes.  Further information regarding what to bring along will be sent out with the trainee handbook after registration.

The age limit is 15 years (on departure date), or 12 years when sailing with parents on non-race legs . If you are over 70 years of age, we need a health certificate from your doctor. You must be healthy enough to participate in the work on board.

 

 

 

 

During the time Christian Radich stays in Oslo in August, we will arrange some nice fjord cruises in the beautiful Oslofjord. Christian Radich uses engine on fjord cruises, but you get a feeling of the ships history and the power when she sails. The cruises start from the Akershus-pier, just across the town hall. The captain decides each time where to go, due to weather and wind. If you are in Oslo one of the days we arrange a fjord cruise, we recommend you to join!
