Adventure Sailing 2019


This year Astrid is heading for adventure sailing to the Finnish archipelago. The aim of the trip is to learn how to sail a sailing ship, make new friends by working together on all the tasks on board and to enjoy the summer at sea on a real tall ship! (Not to forget good food and especially deserts). The trip is aimed for youth and young adults. Sail trainees under the age of 25 get a discount price. 

On the trip we don’t just sail, but stop in interesting places and explore the beautiful nature of the archipelago. We stop mostly at natural harbors and anchorages far away from crowded yacht harbors. The special aim for Adventure Sailing 2019 is to make the trip even more climate friendly than before. Thats why we don’t have a specific target somewhere far away, so we don’t have to rush there driving with the engine if the winds should be agains us. Instead we have the complete freedom to choose our route according to the prevailing winds. You have the possibility to join the whole trip for 12 days, or get on / of halfway through. Place for this change will be Nauvo, a place that’s in the middle of the archipelago sea, but easily accessible by public transport.


With us you really get the chance to learn how to sail, not just how to pull a rope. We have alway a professional permanent crew and follow strict safety rules and give a lot of safety orientation and training also for the trainees. You don’t need to know anything from before, we offer you a safe way to learn the skills needed. On the ship we divide the sail trainees in watches and all the ships routines are done together from cooking and cleaning to sailing and navigation. After sailing with us you can be sure that you are already pretty far on the way of learning how to sail.
