Life on board

There are around fifty deckhands and twenty-five of the professional crew on board Götheborg. The deckhand crew consists of a mix of people from all age groups, geographical origins, level of experience and interests. Everyone contributes in their own way with their unique life experience from professional and private life, whether you have sailing experience or not.  

What do I need to bring along when joining the crew for this great adventure?

We work according to a three-shift system where the deck crew is divided into three watches (teams) who share the 24-hour schedule. Each watch team works for four hours and is then off for eight hours. During your watch you will be assigned different posts, for example: being at the helm (steering the ship), standing watch or going on safety rounds (walking around the ship to see that everything is okay). You will also help to cook in the galley (kitchen). Life on board also means a lot of everyday chores such as cleaning and washing.
