Life on Board of the Bark Europa

The Bark Europa is a sail training ship. That means, that the passengers of the sailing trip are part of the crew. They get detailed safety instructions. The participation in the daily life on board depends on the interest of each passenger. The permanent crew will lead and help you with your tasks. Among other things, you will learn how to navigate and steer a ship, how to set sails and how to keep watch. Sailing experience is not necessary. While sailing through the Drake Passage your participation is assumed as well. You will see that "teamwork" is the key to an unforgettable sailing adventure. Being involved below decks or from the sailing and navigational side only makes the “Total” experience so much richer and rewarding. But for those who chose the flexibility of a sailing yacht, you can also just sit back and relax, your on holidays! The Bark Europa has library, a lounge, a poker corner and a deckhouse. It is equipped with a DVD- and CD-Player and radio. Most of the permanent crew is Dutch. The common language on board is English.

Cabin Facilities
On board of the Bark Europa there are four 2-person cabins, four 4-person cabins and four 6-person cabins. Each bunk has a blanket and bedlinen. Own bedrolls are therefore not necessary. Towels are also provided. All cabins have their private bathroom and WC.
