The foundation’s purpose is to preserve Christian Radich for future generations through active operation, and primarily as a school ship. The ship is also used for voyages for trainees of all ages and for charter. The ship is a great sailing ambassador for Norway.

The ship sails with a crew of 15 people; extra crew members will be taken on for the summer season. The crew consists of Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and Dutch men and women – a fantastic team working on one of the world’s most spectacular vessels.

The office is situated on the quay, Akershuskaia, where the ship stays when she is in Oslo.
