Sailing cargo vessel Nordlys will, as soon as the weather permits, set sail again! After a refit period of 3 months (well, refit is maybe an euphemism after such a collision..) she will sail to The Netherlands with a stop over in the UK .
Nordlys will, after her arrival in The Netherlands, be moored next to „Fairtransport Headquarters“ at Willemsoord 73, Den Helder. Here she will be nourished by her skilled crew during wintertime. Her next cargo-voyage will start early next year. Click here to check her schedule

Paint and stain possible on this beautiful day. All sails are up, even the jib that the kids painted in Amsterdam. We sat her under the mainsail. We call it the ‚dolphin sail‘. Some of the crew members enjoyed cooking yesterday while Soraia had a day off. Her pastas, oignons beignets, pizzas, lasagna and vegetables […]
Today we rolled our merry way past the Dover Callais line in a magical orange sunrise, having now officially left the English channel at our stern. Where we also had a stark reminder that not all of us are as privileged and free as us here on our little square rig shipping around a Corona […]
