How to sail a traditionally rigged ship. The Sørlandet is the oldest and most authentic kept full-rigged-ship in active service. She was built in Kristiansand, Norway in 1927.

How can you experience, learn and challenged yourself aboard the Sørlandet?
The Sørlandet is a unique platform for adventures. 1000 tons of sailing ship needs to be moved by wind and muscle power. In this way, we sail the world's oceans with minimal Carbon emissions. Outdated technology some may say, others think it is the way to the future. What do you think?

Challenge yourself

When you work at the tip of a yard, 35 meters above the ocean and the ship roles at 45 degrees to the sea, what do you think your speed is? Do you take the challenge? How do you think the adrenalin affects your ability to make decisions?

5000 meters of rope end in 300 coils on deck. Each has a specific purpose. Can you learn them all? "Know your ropes". "Learning the ropes", are expressions used daily, do you know their meaning?

We can sum up an expedition cruise with the Sørlandet as:
In, with, against and with the help of: Mechanics, Physics, Aerodynamics, Hydrodynamics, Oceanography, Metrology, Geography, Navigation, Cooperation, Insight, Experience, Culture and Traditions combined with the joy of a diverse marine life give us interesting studies, challenges and memorable experiences.
