The ice in the museum harbour has melted and the birds announce the approaching spring in the early morning. Work on board the Cape Race is also progressing. For example, the sea ring is now higher all round and therefore safer, a new watermaker and a UV system ensure clear drinking water, in cabins three and four the berths are currently being rebuilt, or a generator has been completely renewed. The to-do list for the layover in Hamburg is 27 on deck, 50 in the interior, 32 in the engine room, 14 for the safety systems and 18 minor to major items for navigation that need to be completed before the departure with guests.

The planning for the coming season, on the other hand, is not so easy to keep to. Unfortunately, we will not be going to Spitsbergen this year as planned at the beginning of May. The Norwegian government is closing their country to inbound travellers and guest ships until at least July.

Consequently, we developed an offer adapted to the situation instead: we will sail via Helgoland and the Kiel Canal into the Baltic Sea at the beginning of May and explore the German Baltic coast on five trips of six days each. Without border problems, without flights, with a crew and guests that have been tested several times, we discover the magnificent natural landscape of the Baltic Sea coast, from the Geltinger Birk to Usedom, we land with our Zodiac boats on lonely beaches and wild cliffs and experience a nature that is difficult or almost impossible to visit from land. Here you will find the detailed offer.
