When you sail with us, you become a co-sailer with important tasks on the ship, and is considered part of the crew. A journey with Sorlandet is an experience that challenges and develops you, and whether you've sailed before or not, you get sufficient training to perform the varied and interesting tasks await you as co-sailer.
To divide the crew into different inspection teams is a scheme as old as the sailing ships themselves. As a co-sailer you will belong to one of three inspection teams: red, white or blue. Each guard consists of a four hour deck watch, and then off duty for eight hours.
During a four hour period each half hour is marked by a strike on the ships bell. This is called turning glass, because in the old days kept record of the time through the hourglass. When you hear eight strokes on the ship's bell, the changing of the guard. This takes place every four hour, and becomes the rhythm of the on board.
All duties involves special experiences , and you will discover nature in new and fascinating ways. Although the open sea has no reference points, the stars can always tell where you are and what time of day it is . And at night, without any lights, you see the starry sky much clearer. If you are lucky you may see the phosphorescence light and glow in the aftermath, a magical sight it is hard to forget.
The deck watch is the watch that works around the clock in a voyage with Sorlandet. The whole guard team is prepared to perform the sail maneuvers and other tasks necessary for a safe cruise. Both you and everyone on board is working together to sail the ship. While on board the ship, you will have the opportunity to become familiar with everything from the deck, helm, lookout, galley-to fireguard.
