You will join the ship in the particularly beautiful port of Rostock. If you have the chance, we advise to come a little early to visit this lovely town. Rostock has a rich culture with a lot of green parks to be found in the city. It has a very nice center, with many small shops. On Sunday evening you will be warmly greeted by the crew on board the Abel Tasman and you will get to know your traveling companions. After the important security issues and domestic announcements have been made, the weather report will be discussed together and the possible itinerary will be planned.
Gesproken talen aan boord: Dutch, German, English
You become part of the Abel Tasman crew
Before the sails are set, you go with the bosun, sailor, mate, to the front deck for the sail training, where everything will be explained. You will learn, among other things, the names of the sails and how they function. You also practice some knots that you will use on the Abel Tasman this week. And less fun, but very important: there is also talk about what to do in case of emergency. During this week there are plenty of opportunities to (actively) participate in sailing, trimming, packing, steering and navigate.
