Sailing a traditional cargo ship is a unique way
to discover the world and learn the art of square-rig
seamanship. Sign up now for the adventure
of a lifetime!
Sail along! Our engineless ships provide an ideal situation for training young and experienced seafarers. Due to the rigors and challenges of sailing cargo, sailors learn a wide range of skills and disciplines stat can only be acquired by traditional sail training. Alongside this hands-on learning of marlinspike seamanship, those who are interested are taught the history of sail, the physics of sail theory, as well as navigation. Completing a full round-trip of at least half a year with Tres Hombres is just as rewarding and adventurous as a European voyage of a couple of days on board of world’s oldest sailing cargo ship Nordlys!
Once you step onboard as a trainee you are part of the crew! Our experienced sailing professionals will teach you the basic skills such as safety precautions, taking the helm, lookout, sail handling, and ship maintenance.
You also take part in the day and night watches and help the crew to maneuver the ship. Even helping out during the loading and unloading belongs to the sailing cargo adventure.
Yes, it will be tough at times, but you will get the experience of a lifetime!!!
Aspire to become an Able Seaman. Learn marlinespike seamanship, basic navigation, and manoeuvring under sail. Eventually, you will be experienced enough to become boatswain which entails leadership, rigging, sail sewing, ship carpentry, and square rigging.
We guarantee that this will be an experience that you will never forget.
