After a somewhat delayed stay at the yard, Christian Radich is on the way to Oslo and the celebration of the Constitution Day! The ship arrives the night before May 17 and will shine like new at the quayside. The exterior is painted, but some of the works inside remain and will be done in Oslo.

Thanks to a tremendous effort from our crew, Christian Radich is ready to welcome and handle all guests and events in May. When June comes we look forward to the summer voyages and Tall Ships Races in home waters.

There are few places left on the voyages, so be quick if you want to join!



We had a cancellation on the race between Bergen and Esbjerg and the race is open for booking again! Be quick if you want to join this race!

The voyages this summer are very popular. On the first voyage, from Sandefjord, we will go straight into the Skagerrak, and find the best possible winds. On the last voyages from Copenhagen to Oslo, we plan a voyage with spacious time in order to sail a lot.

The voyages are popular and if you want to join, you have to book early!


Christian Radich is now at the cruise pier St. Catalina in Las Palmas after a wonderful adventure across the Atlantic. Here you can see the whole trip since we left Las Palmas Nov. 24. 2013. We have visited St. Lucia, Antigua, St. Martin, Bermuda, the Azores and back to the Canary Islands. On our way east, the wind stopped and we had to go for motor, on our way west we hit a storm.  It has been quiet days and it’s been busy days. All in all, it has been a life changing experience for our trainees.

Regattas in the summer are soon sold out!
There are only a few places left on the race legs this summer. Cruise in Company between Fredrikstad and Bergen is booked over halfway, but it is still possible to join one of the other voyages. The voyages this summer are popular and if you want to join, you have to book early!

This autumn, the world`s most famous tall ship Christian Radich will sail across the Atlantic with dedicated and enthusiastic trainees, eager to experience something extraordinary.
We did the voyages last year for the first time in eleven years and it was a huge success and a memory for life for the trainees. This upcoming journey will also be an unforgettable and safe experience for the trainees and crew. Starting from Las Palmas on November 24th, Christian Radich will follow the famous regatta ARC (Atlantic Rally for Cruisers), without participating in the race directly, but rather enjoying and taking in the ARC atmosphere. During this time of year, we can expect favourable weather conditions – easing the passage across the Atlantic. The destination is set for St. Lucia in the Caribbean islands December 14.

The voyage eastwards will start in St. Martin January 2. The first destination, maybe after a short stop in Bermuda, is Horta on the Island of Faial, Azores. From here you can join the ship south to Las Palmas. Taking advantage of the best possible weather conditions, the course is set towards Bermuda to catch the western winds. The final destination is Las Palmas on February 3. If you can`t join all the way, you can leave the ship in Faial January 25.

Please send an e-mail to if you want us to send you the brochure or registration. You can also download them here:

Christian Radich started her first Atlantic crossing in 11 years on November 25th. Around 70 trainees sailed on the ship from Las Palmas and they had fair winds towards warmer and warmer climate. Arriving in St. Lucia was as planned 15 of December. Some of the trainees went home and some stayed on board to experience sailing in the Caribbean.

Meanwhile, new sailors came on board to join the voyage eastward. The departure was January 6th from St. Martin. First stop was the beautiful island of Bermuda. Next stop was the island of Faial. On the way, a storm was coming up, so Christian Radich turned southward and sailed around the storm.

On the last leg from Faial to Pt. Delgada, the sea was turbulent, the trainees worked with sails and the ship in general. It’s probably both good and sad to say farewell to the ship and fellow trainees. These trips have for certain been a life changing experience!

We hope it will not be too long until we sail across the Atlantic again!

After a successful stop-over on the island Faial and Peter’s Sports Café, Christian Radich is sailing again with crew and trainees. They report about old sea and have gone by motor to the final destination Pt. Delgada. An amazing adventure is coming to an end for this time!

Christian Radich left Bermuda on Wednesday  January 16th . On facebook we can read about how much the trainees enjoyed the beautiful island. The ship has set sail again and it will be many days at sea before arriving in the Azores, February 1th. Let’s hope there will be time to visit the meeting place for seafarers: “Peter` s Bar! ” on the island of Faial. Follow Christian Radich on her Atlantic crossing.

Christian Radich has anchored at the Cruise Terminal in Philipsburg, St. Martin. The ship has been welcomed in all ports and on Saturday the Captain will invite the inhabitants of Philipsburg on board. There has unfortunately been a poor Internet connection for a while. But from Sunday Jan. 6th  we can follow the ship again on her Atlantic voyage towards the Azores. Fair winds!

Trainees and crew on board Christian Radich are having some wonderful days in the Caribbean. This is probably a Christmas they never forget! 28. December, the ship leaves for St. Martin after being a few days near Antigua. Some have said goodbye for this time, and new trainees have arrived. The rest arrives in St. Martin from January 3. Then it is only a few days left until departure for the Azores!


Christian Radich is having fair winds on her way to St. Lucia. The crew are updating facebook frequently with photos from the voyage:

Christian Radich will set sail for St. Lucia in the Caribbean, Sunday at 10:00! Trainees and crew are excited and are looking forward to the adventure. As the photo shows, there is much to do before departure. We wish you fair winds and a great experience. The rest of us can follow the ship on the homepage:
