If you want to make a firm booking, please complete the form below. On our booking form we ask for your passport details, date of birth and other personal details. We need these details to produce all necessary crew lists for immigration purposes. Additionally we need a fully completed health statement with details about medicine dosages and medicine names. This information will be used to get a first insight in your overall fitness and determine any possible risks of sailing in a remote area. Obviously these details will be treated confidentially.
Completing the form will take about 10 till 15 minutes of your time. After receipt of your booking form we will process your booking as soon as possible. Your booking is confirmed after receiving our confirmation of your booking and a corresponding invoice. Our payment conditions and banking details are mentioned on the invoice. Good to know: we cannot accept cheques and credit cards.
Are you 65 years old or over at the time of sailing? We kindly ask you to fill in the additional health statement that needs to be signed by your physician/general practioner. While booking a voyage, you can email the document to: firstname.lastname@example.org. This statement will be discussed by our ships doctors to make a final decision, based on safety, fitness and health, together with our captains and shipping office.
Sailors of the age of 73 and over, unfortunately can't join us on the ocean crossings and Antarctica expeditions, but they are more than welcome to apply for coastal voyages. We understand this is a very stric decision and the health situation can differ a lot bewteen one person ore the other. This decision is therefore carefully discussed with our ships doctors and captains and mainly based on the number of medical issures that happened, fatigue and a slower recovery of injuries at a certain age.
If you don't have all necessary information at hand and need some more time you can download a PDF version of our form. This will give you the opportunity to save the document on your desktop and send it via e-mail to our office.
We ask all trainees to be careful with close contacts in the days prior to their flight. It is also possible that we ask you to arrive +/- 3 days earlier than the embarkation day in the city/port of embarkation. This depends on the circumstances at the time and location of the voyage, we will inform you about this per voyage. On the day before embarkation we ask everyone to do a PCR test and email us the results. We advise everyone to get cancellation insurance that covers all COVID-19 related cases, such as not being able to travel to the city of embarkation due to travel restrictions or illness (COVID-19).
