Christian Radich was built by Framnæs Mech. Yard in 1937 as a sailtraining ship: the orlops (dormitories) had capacity for berthing 80-90 students (maximum 60 today after the latest renovation), a large galley for learning to cook, carpentry training, and earlier there was also a machineshop on board (where the galley is now) for the training of engineers. The purpose of the training ship was to train sailors. Sailing-ships were the usual vessels around the turn of the century and that is why the sailing ships continued as a school ship later on.

Not many can measure themselves against her, neither in size, beauty nor qualities. To participate on a voyage aboard the “Christian Radich” is an adventure as well as an opportunity to learn something about the life on board a sailing ship. – And who knows, maybe an opportunity to learn something about yourself too?
