Fall Crew Training
FALL 2021 CREW TRAINING CLASS is TBD DUE TO COVID-19 Click here to receive info about this class once a decision has been made.
This fall crew training program is offered as a live-aboard option only.
You will move aboard in late September, and will quickly get oriented to the ship, and safety equipment followed by an in-depth study of setting sails and knot tying. The ship will be in Wilmington, DE and will be conducting our fall education programs, including education sails on the weekdays, and ship maintenance. This is a VERY condensed course, so be prepared to STUDY, STUDY, STUDY!!! You will learn everything we cover in the 10 week Winter Crew Training class, but at an intense rate! The great part is that you will be fully emerged in the learning process as you eat, sleep and breathe Kalmar Nyckel for 2.5 weeks! Many friendly crew will be available to assist in your learning process, and you will quickly make new friends.
Time off will be worked into the schedule so you can get out and enjoy the city of Wilmington or Philadelphia during your stay on the ship. You will complete your final exam mid-October, and may opt to stay on board a while longer if you'd like (subject to bunk availability/ship need).
Non-refundable fees: $181.32 ($162.50 payable at registration, $18.82 payable directly to the on-line background check company) The fee includes a $60 materials fee, a one-time fee of $42.50 for a initial USCG drug test, a $60 donation towards your food, and $18.82 for a background check (due before the last day of class).
