Meet the regular crew:
The regular crew members are scattered all over Germany, a few can be found in the rest of Europe and a handful even come from a different continent. Some of our crew have spent or are still spending most of their lives at sea in a professional capacity, others had never sailed before they first stepped on board a tall ship: a large part of the crew lead their everyday lives far away from the sea with no connection to sailing at all. It remains a fascinating fact that when you step on board you will find almost every vocation from pilots, scientists, farmers and doctors to judges, hairdressers, students and firemen among the crew! This makes for a very diverse but highly enthusiastic and interesting group of people of all ages, connected through their soft spot for tall ships in general and the Roald Amundsen in particular.
Since we from the regular crew have to return to jobs and families eventually, we try to make the best of life on dry land by meeting up with all the tall ship sailors (and those who are still considering the idea of going to sea!) who live in our area. These regional groups meet up at regular intervals to exchange news, admire photos, dream of future voyages and spread tall stories about tall ships! If you would like to come along to these social evenings, check the entry "Regionalgruppen" on this website. All are welcome!
The regular crew meets up twice a year in order to elect their representatives who ensure that the interests of the crew are taken account of within the society.
