Step on board Christian Radich in Sardinia, famous for having the clearest waters in the Mediterranean. Spend an evening getting to know the ship and its crew and get a good night’s sleep before setting out for an adventure! The voyage across the Mediterranean back to Spain and Alicante will take four days. During this time, as a trainee on board you will join the watches and sail the Ship with its permanent crew. Climb the masts, trim the sails, steer, navigate; learn to make knots, sing some shanties and enjoy spending your time out on the sea. Disembark in Alicante filled with new memories, great photos and enough new energy to get you through the upcoming autumn. Embarkation is betweeen 16-18 but you can drop off your baggage any time since 10 and enjoy the day in Cagliari, luggage-free. Open to Windseekers aged 12 and older, ages 12-14 must be accompanied by an adult.
The Port of Cagliari is one of the largest Italian seaports and a capital of Sardinia whose history dates back to ancient times. Take a walk around town to admire historical buildings, visit the botanical garden and an archeological museum, then relax on the beatiful Poetto beach.
Alicante is a port city on the Costa Blanca, Mediterranean coast of Spain. Climb up to the 16-century Castle of Santa Barbara for a great view over the city and take a stroll through the lively Explanada de Espana with its many cafes and restaurants. Visit Barrio Santa Cruz for a taste of authentic local culture and if you love everything sailing-related don’t miss the Volvo Ocean Race Museum.

This process is automatic and you do not need to do anything else.After receiving your booking, Windseeker will send you detailed information on how and when to pay for your journey – together with all the other important details.
What does it mean?
In short: you do not pay the booking amount to Windseeker but instead into an escrow account. This trust account holds your payment in reserve until your journey’s end. The booking amount is then released to Windseeker on the day after your trip ends. If Windseeker or the Ship should become financially insolvent before the end of your trip, STO Garant will implement the guarantee. The Guarantee Scheme details how you can make a claim under the guarantee in such cases. You can read more about this here.
