NOTICE TO TRAINEE
Clothes and shoes

You can wear any kind of clothes you are used to. We recommend to take thermal underwear, warm clothes, windproof jacket and warm hat.
As opposed to yachts, it is good to have a pair of shoes with a small heel – it is required while going up the mast, as the heel will bump against the lines. You might also need sunglasses. You do not need yacht gloves — it is not allowed to wear them during works. You may only use gloves with open fingers. To go up the mast, according to safety rules one must cover the head. So take a plain sport hat – you will need it definitely.
Hand luggage
It is more convenient to take a soft duffel bag. Towels and bed linens are provided onboard.
Visas
All trainees must have a multi-entry Shengen visa ( if required)
Insurance
A special maritime insurance is provided to every trainee.

Responsibility
We do ask you to be on time for the embarkation. There are about 200 people in the crew list, the departure time is agreed with the port authorities , so there is no possibility to wait for anyone. If a trainee does not arrive to the port on time, he/she will be dismissed. No refunds in this case.



Sea sickness
All people can get seasick, but severity may vary. 95 percent will get used to ship motions in five hours. If you don't, there is well-equipped medical bay onboard, where you can receive treatment.
