Our project: open the World of sailing to young people. We want to get ready for the Tall Ship Race 2023.
Our family lives on-board while refitting the steel lady but we need some hands as there is plenty to do. Most of the time I am by myself with the kids, that's why the presence of someone else is always helpful. It is a unique experience in itself. The ship is 31m long, 30 years old and has a proper charm.

We are a French-German family living in the Netherlands which makes already an interesting mix. You will learn a lot about renovating a steel ship.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
You will be part of the family and will have different tasks on board like removing rust, painting, rebuilding cabins, sometimes picking up kids at school or making some meals, etc. No experience is needed. We will discuss together what is to be done and you will manage your time as you want.
Further note: we will not agree having people working a few hours and then just putting their feet under the table when it is diner time... Life on a ship means participating in all tasks as you would do in your home.
You'll have a cabine. There is all comfort onboard but we do take our showers in the marina building (next to us). We will provide all meals and fresh fish from the market on Friday!
We are located 1 hours drive away from Amsterdam. Den Helder is a small and lovely city, and the train station is only 15 min walk from us. We have bikes that you can use. There are beaches and (hopefully) lots of cultural events.The atmosphere at the marina is peaceful and very friendly.
