Do I have to have sailing experience to join?
We make no demands on the experience of our guests for trips with a skipper on board. The only thing we expect is that you are in reasonably good physical shape, and have a positive attitude.
If you are going to rent a boat and be your own skipper, we require long sailing experience with boats of similar size.
What about meals?
With bareboat rental, meals are not included.
Otherwise, it varies whether meals are included or not. This can be adapted to the individual customer and request. Action can be taken by us in advance for a supplement.
At our ready-made package tours such as “skiing and sailing” and “sailing weekend, meals are included.
Sustainability and animal welfare are important aspects, so most of the meals will include ingredients from local farmers.
We can adapt the menu to any allergies or preferences about vegetarian diets – let us know in good time about this.
Everyone on board contributes to cooking and dishes.
You must have a valid travel insurance to join the trip, and this should also cover any cancellation of the trip. Read our travel terms for cancellation policy and refund. Otherwise, you are covered by our boat insurance, in the event of an accident on board.
Who and how many are on board?
Bifrost can accommodate 8 guests, in addition to the skipper in its own cabin. Sol é Mar can accommodate 4/5 guests, in addition to the skipper.
Until the pandemic is over, we only accept cohort groups or families who have been vaccinated or tested negative in advance.
What is included?
Life jackets, bed linen, towels and cleaning are included in all our trips and rentals.
For ready package tours, skipper/guide and meals are included.
For sailing courses, course certificates, meals and sailing manual are included.
What do I have to bring?
See our package list here. Otherwise, we ask that you do not bring a trolley case on board, but packs in soft bags that can be stored in cabinets and shelves. Pack sensibly and no more than you need. You can leave the fine dresses at home 🙂
Does it get cold in the winter?
In the winter, we use Bifrost, which is equipped with a webasto heating system in all cabins and bathrooms. As one of our guests once exclaimed: “There are even heating cables in the toilet seat!”.
No, we probably do not really have that much luxury, but it can certainly feel like that when the hot air aims stright at the bowl: D
The bathrooms are heated, and can be used to hang wet ski clothes. In addition, we have a drying room above the engine where you can put damp clothes.
We are both concerned that it should be safe to sail with us, and take safety very seriously.
To increase our competence in safety, we did some volunteer work at the rescue boats in Trondheim. Here we received many useful courses, including communication, safety management and accident management at sea. Here at home, we have participated as a volunteer crew with Anna Rogde, with passenger and crisis management courses and taken the necessary safety courses and certificates for Halvard (IMO50, D5L). The boats are equipped with the necessary safety equipment, and we regularly review and upgrade fire protection and routines in the event of accidents on board.
