New experiences and new friendships during a youth trip on board
Step aboard a sailing ship for a unique experience. Meet your peers and go sailing the ship together to unknown destinations.
The youth travels are journeys where young people of different nationalities and backgrounds meet each other and take on a challenge. It is a vacation where two things are central: making new friendships and having the time of your life!
The ins and outs on board of Tall Ships
The intention is for the young sailors to learn everything about life on a ship, from guarding to cleaning the deck.
Many of these adventurous youth travel take place on board a Tall Ship, such as the Golden Lion. On this ship the trainees learn and experience maritime traditions and values that are indispensable for life on board and within a close-knit community.
At the Golden Lion, the students are closely acquainted with the nautical and maritime world. The teaching material, which is traditionally transferred into theoretical lessons, takes a direct and practical form here. The trainees continue to learn during leisure time and waiting, be it seamanship, navigation or the expansion of their technical knowledge or practical skills.
There is a suitable range of duties in every area. Those with an interest in technology and equipment can work in the engine room or with technical maintenance, while trainees who prefer organizational work can do this, for example, with route planning.
Depending on the duration of a trip, it is possible to delve deeper into some subjects. The focus is on increasing social involvement and team spirit.
