New Year — Loop route — Greek Islands
New year journeys always gather old friends and tested crews aboard the "Shtandart". If it's been a while, since you joined us, and you miss the ship and eah other — don't think twice! Write us as soon as possible, book a place and plan your New Year adventure.
We also miss you very much!
If you have never been on the "Shtandart", but you feel that the atmosphere is close to your heart and you are ready to immerse into maritime adventures? The more is the reason to fill in the application form - vacant places for the New Year holidays are booked very fast!
It is not often that the "Shtandart" sails a loop route and returns to the same port. Usually we are on the way from one festival to another, and the sailing direction is strictly defined. Two New Year routes will be exceptions to this rule. As real free nomads, we are absolutely free in choosing the route and will be considering only the wind direction and our mood.
We can sail to the South — where there are stunning picturesque gulfs of Paros and Naxos, or to the South-West, in the direction of Napflio and Monemvasia, or even to the North-East — around the Cape Sounion.
And those who want to manage everything and everywhere should just maybe stay for 2 weeks at once!
Any Shtandart journey includes mandatory making and taking in of sails, bracing and steering wheel shifts. We have no passengers!
Amount of new knowledge and skills depends on your energy and enthusiasm. Shift officers and the captain will eagerly share their experience; just find time to ask your questions! Knots, modern and traditional navigation, marine radio communication and tricks of the sail settings – you can learn anything, see it and try it with your own hands.
