Join the historic first lap of the One Ocean Expedition, Statsraad Lehmkuhl's very first circumnavigation of the globe! After a grand departure from Arendal, Norway, we set sail for sunny Spain. Everyone can sail with us - no previous experience is required!
Sailing and sunbathing
For eight days you can enjoy sailing and sunbathing on an exciting ocean voyage to the beautiful city of La Coruña on the northwest coast of Spain. The journey takes us over the North Sea, through the English Channel and across the Bay of Biscay to La Coruña.
It´s a wonderful experience sailing south towards Southern Europe! The ship and the people fall into their own rhythm out at sea. We sail the ship together and we share all the great nature experiences with each other. Without internet coverage, the voyage is also a delightful "detox" from everyday focus on smartphones and constant availability.
As we sail south, the climate becomes milder and the temperature rises. And the further south, the more comfortable the temperature becomes, (remember to bring sunscreen!).
In La Coruña a long-awaited Tall Ships Races festival awaits, and the city will be buzzing with life and sailing ships from all over the world. Among other things, La Coruña offers it´s visitors lovely beaches, historical sites and a wonderful taste of the Spanish food culture.
Everyone is welcome
Everyone is welcome on the Statsraad Lehmkuhl, regardless of age and previous sailing experiences. You do not have to worry if this is your first encounter with a tall ship! Our skilled and friendly permanent crew will teach you how to participate in sailing maneuvers, mend the helm, set the sail, pull the ropes, climb the rigging (voluntary) and many other skills.
As a trainee on Norway´s biggest sailing ship, you will become an important part of the crew on board. In fact, without the efforts of our trainees, it is not possible to sail a large ship such as Statsraad Lehmkuhl!
In addition to fantastic nature experiences, the extraordinary surroundings and the activities on board provide a sense of achievement quite out of the ordinary.
A unique unity
Surrounded by the sea, a unique unity is created on board that becomes part of you, even long after the journey is over. We do our watches together, eat our meals together, take care of one another and sleep side by side in hammocks, as sailors have done for centuries. Cut off from the rest of the world, it´s not just the excitement of rig climbing and the thrill of sailing that make an impression. It´s the people, the interaction and the relationships that are created between them that often make the strongest impression. Many of the friendships created aboard lasts for life.
An environmentally friendly adventure
An adventure with Statsraad Lehmkuhl is an environmentally friendly way of travelling, since nearly 70% of our voyages are completed under sail each year. And with our newly installed revolutionary hybrid battery solution, Statsraad Lehmkuhl is becoming the world´s most environmentally friendly sailing ship in its class.
The ship Statsraad Lehmkuhl
Statsraad Lehmkuhl was built in Germany in 1914 and is one of the largest, oldest and fastest tall ships in the world. She has served as a training vessel under the Norwegian flag for a century, and we take pride in keeping her in top condition. Sailing this magnificent ship is truly a unique experience. The very special atmosphere and feelings of friendship, seamenship and teamwork guarantee you memories for life.
PS: Recommendation for the voyage: Lie on your back out on deck in the evening and look up at the starry sky. Out on the ocean, with no other disturbing light, the stars come out in a very special way. Accompanied only by the sounds of the sails and the creaking of the ship, these are truly moments of magic!
Welcome on board as the first trainees on Statsraad Lehmkuhl´s only circumnavigation of the world!
