Departure from Bergen
We meet at Bradbenken by Bryggen in Bergen (Same pier as Statsraad Lehmkuhl). After boarding, we sail out from the Port of Bergen and set off for the fjord. The crew on board also tells a little story about Loyal.
During the trip there will be light food serving consisting of sausages. Drinks can either be brought or bought on board.
Knots and splicing
Among the seafarers we want to teach are knots and splicing. First of all, you will learn knots and when to use them. For those who master this, we will also learn away splicing.
Sail with us
If the weather allows it, we will use the boat's sail. As a crew on board, you help to ensure the progress of the ship and that we keep the right course.
Back to Bergen
The boat is back at the quay in Bergen at 16:00. It is then important that parents who are to pick up are present.
