It is now getting close to departure for the voyage with Christian Radich from Delfzijl to Antwerp. On the map over Delfzijl you can see where Christian Radich is moored. You can always keep track of where Christian Radich is.

There is a big sailing festival in Delfzijl – Delfsail. You can read more about the event here and it is worth spending some time here if you arrive a day before departure.

When the ship leaves Delfzijl, each trainee will be assigned to one of three watch teams which have 4 hours on duty and 8 hours off – both day and night. You can read more about the job you do as trainee on our web site. Have you not received our handbook, please email us and we will send you one.


What should I pack?

Summer weather in the north is unpredictable. The most important thing to remember when packing is clothes that are waterproof, windproof and good shoes. You can see our list of what we recommend you to bring.



In Antwerp, the festival for the Tall Ships Races begin. There is a lot going on! If you will join the ship to Lisbon, or if you will stay some nights in Antwerp, we hope you will join the crew parade on July 8.


Have you forgotten anything?

Have you given us all the information we need? If you’ve changed your passport after you booked the voyage, please send us the new passport number. If you are over 70 years old, you must send us a medical certificate if you haven’t done so before.

We are looking forward to welcome you on board the Christian Radich!
