Though the atmosphere on board the Bark EUROPA is very relaxed and there is little hierarchy there are some offical jobs on board. There are two officers on board: the captain and 1st mate. Next to them a bosun, cook and cooksmate, barhand, engineer and last but not least a number of deckhands populate the ship. We are very pleased that the ship enjoys the company of a very international crew, below you can find the names and nationalities of the crew who are now on board.
