Q: Are the sailing voyages the same as the voyages on a motor vessel?

‚ÄčOur sailing-vessels are much smaller compared to our motor-vessels. The maximum number of passengers is 20 on s/v Noorderlicht and 33 on s/v Rembrandt van Rijn. The atmosphere on board is very intimate and there is more direct contact with the sailing crew. The number of guides on board of the sailing-vessels is also lower. On s/v Noorderlicht there is only one guide, on the Rembrandt van Rijn two. As a consequence groups of s/v Noorderlicht cannot split up on shore into smaller groups making the hikes maybe more demanding for less fit passengers. Besides the size of the sailing-vessels these ships are also less fast compared to the motor-vessels. The distances covered by the sailing-vessels are therefore less long. The sailing-vessels often make more frequent stops and have a less strict program, due to the nature of sailing.
