We want to send out a younger generation of visionaries, with a common wish to make the world a better place and as God’s ambassadors for good.
On our journey to Israel, we will go ashore in England, Spain, Portugal, Ibiza, Italy and Cyprus.
As young ambassadors for good, we will seek to bless the port cities we dock at on our way to Israel with good deeds. For this reason, we will partner with organisations such as Youth With A Mission (YWAM) and collaborate with local churches. In each of these European cities, we plan to share the peaceful message of the gospel, and bring a practical demonstration of blessing.
Things to bring
Remember these items for your packing list
Life on board
Passengers are divided into 3 teams that go on duty for 4 hours on and 8 hours off. The duty hours are 4-8, 8-12 and 12-4 (both AM and PM). This makes for an exciting voyage where you get to know your ship mates better.
Posted on the foredeck or, in heavy weather, on the poop-deck. The look-out reports all objects sighted: boats, fishing equipment, wreck-goods and other floating goods.
Posted at the wheel on the poop-deck. Steers the ship under supervision of the ship’s crew.
Fire and safety watch
The fire-watch patrols the entire ship every 30 minutes, starting on deck and following the designated patrol route.
One or two trainees from each watch can be posted in the galley or pantry, for one day, to assist the cooks during meals.
During your free time, you are welcome to relax with a good book, take photos or talk with your fellow trainees over a good cup of coffee. You are also welcome to help with the current shift, if you wish.
Food and meals
We serve tasty and nutritional meals aboard. Fresh fish is served often. Remember to report any food allergies when ordering your voyage. Please inform us before the voyage begins.
While at sea, meals are served at the following times:
Further food in the late evening is available as required for the night shifts.
While at sea you will sleep either on a bunk, or in a hammock. There are separate bathrooms for women and men.
Frequently Asked Questions
There are a lot of questions to be asked when preparing for such a journey. Here are a few answers to the most common ones.
The age limit is 15 years old (on departure date), and 12 years when sailing with parents on non-race legs. We have zero tolerance if trainees under 18 years use alcohol, or drugs, including in ports.
Everyone in normal good health can sail with Christian Radich. We expect that as many as possible enter the rigging, but if you do not want to please inform the crew. If you have a health restriction, this must be considered. For many, the sea is a strange element and health constraints you do not think about daily can be exacerbated on board. It is expected that all on board are able to take care of themselves as the crew does not have the capacity to provide extra help to the individual. A health restriction will be further worsened in bad weather. If you use a wheelchair or crutches, you can not attend a tour.
It is important that all allergies and all prescription drug use must be registered. Please note that medicines lose their effect when combined with sea sickness. Remember to report to the sergeant and watchman on board if you are using sea sickness tablets or sea sickness patches (we recommend recycled plastics). When using sea sickness drugs, you can not participate with rigging for a certain amount of time after ingestion.
To make everybody’s sailing experience as safe and pleasant as possible, it is vital that each and every person is familiar with, and respects the ship’s safety rules. Please study the ship’s safety plan, and note the location of the life saving equipment. Sitting upon the pin rails or railings is not allowed for safety reasons. Walk, don’t run, and be careful both on, and below deck.
On your first trip aloft you will be accompanied by one of the ship’s crew. Always remove loose articles, like mobile phones, keys, coins, sunglasses etc. from your pockets. If you wear glasses they must be securely fastened.
You may go aloft only when ordered to do so, or after given permission from the watch officer or the watch leader.
