Story

Christian Radich is one of the world’s most famous sailing ships. She was built in 1937. Christian Radich sailed as a training ship until 1998 and almost 17,000 Norwegian students have had their basic marine education on board. The ship is well known from the movie “Windjammer” (1958). During the summer season, she offers sail training voyages for trainees and school classes. She also offers teambuilding and adventures for companies and private parties. During winter she sails in Southern Europe, in the Caribbean and she does Atlantic Crossings, with trainees. Trainees come from all over the world. A professional permanent crew of 15 – 20 persons introduce trainees to life on board the ship and make them familiar with 14.6400 square feet of sails and 9800 yards of rope.
