Christian Radich:
Oslo (NO) - Oslo (NO)

13 May - 16 May 2015

Cram a whole sailing adventure in a long weekend of sailing with the Christian Radich, together with your fellow Windseekers. Experience the Norwegian summer nights before the celebrations of Constitution Day on May 17th in Oslo. On board, you will steer the ship and climb the rigging as your team sets the sails of a Tall Ship at sea. Help set and trim the sails, climb the rigging, and taste the salty air. Open vistas and stunning scenery await! Together with the rest of your watch group you’ll have the deck to yourself at night. Stand on lookout, help with navigation, help keep the ship clean, and do odd jobs on deck and below. Or grab a book and enjoy a holiday read from the beautiful Oslo-fjords. Open to all ages, minimum age 12 years. Age 12-15 years guided by parent/adult.

Ports

Visit Oslo and experience its rich cultural life. The 1000-year-old Norwegian capital sits at the head of Oslo Fjord. This stunning setting gives hints of the wild wonders that lie just beyond the city. From taking in visual delights at Vigeland Sculpture Park, the Viking Ship Museum, the Munch Museum and Holmenkollen, to the new Nobel Peace Centre and the Holocoust Centre, Oslo offers plenty of food for thought. Did you know that Oslo is a forerunner on sustainability and environmental policy?
