Atlantic Roundtrip 2013 -2014
The Tres Hombres sails throughout the year. So in addition to a winter program has a summer program. Learn square-rigged seamanship, feel the rhythm of the ocean and come back a different person!
For people who do not have time for a longer time to cruise, there are shorter trips possible.
These are obviously just as adventurous and Spartan.
Prices exclude flights and insurances but include training, room and board and one or more certificates for successful participation in the program. The full amount has to be paid in advance before boarding. For those participants unable to pay the full amount, it may be possible to lay a claim on the “Scheepsjongens van Bontekoe fund” to make a contribution towards the costs.
Who is eligible? Everyone (men and women) older than 15 with good health and interest in the sea. For example school leavers who want to travel and sail for a few months or a year, persons who want to take a sabbatical, students from the nautical school to improve their practical knowledge, or even adventurers who want to have a whole new experience.
