Join the crew!
As you welcome the New Year, so will you live it!) You are invited to a team of like-minded people ready to start 2019 with new adventures. The special New Year program will take us to the "wildest" of the Canary Islands without prejudice to the celebration's beauty or comfort!
We are welcoming a new sailing vessel to our flotilla!

Twister: Combination of history and style, comfort and speed.
The two-mast Twister schooner was built in 1902 as a fishing boat. Designed to deliver the take to fish auctions as quickly as possible, the Twister remains one of the speediest ships in the Dutch sailing fleet.

In 1957, the original wooden frame was replaced with a metal one, while in 1999 the schooner was completely remade into a passenger sailing ship.

You will become a member of a small team of 12. The team will not be a usual one but the team of experienced travelers. Leaving for El Hierro, the wildest of the Canary Islands, we will not be giving up an opportunity to drink a morning cup of tea or meet the sunset with a cup of wine in a de luxe saloon.
While retaining the privilege of a personal cabin, each participant remains a full-blown member of the crew. You are invited to the steering wheel or outhaul:
you have the full control of the boat in your hands.

Participants are accommodated in two-berth cabins. Each cabin has a wash stand, shower and bath rooms are in the hall in front of the cabins. The Twister has two big comfortable saloons, in the pilot house and the boat's stern.

Boots and clothes
It is comfortable to wear on board cotton or special yacht trousers but jeans will do too. Of overclothes, thin thermal underwear, wind jackets and trousers are ok.
Yacht or other sport footwear will do. Trekking boots or comfortable and enduring sneakers will be of use for walks through islands.
You may also need sun glasses.

Instead of a suitcase, it's better to take a soft bag. There is enough room on the Twister, however, a sizeable suitcase will be your cabin companion.

A usual tourist "Schengen" visa will do. Border is marked on the way to Spain and back in the airport.
We recommend to get an insurance for active travelers abroad (yachting). Sport insurance is not required! Insurance may be got on-line in most insurance companies.
Sea sickness
All people without exception suffer from sea sickness but to a different degree. 95% of people get used to the swell during the first few hours.
