The Avontuur is a 44m Gaff Rigged Cargo Schooner, completely overhauled from 2014-16, currently on her maiden voyage through western Europe and heading forthe Caribbean. Our mission is to conduct and promote cargo under sail and to raise awareness about the growing pollution of our planet and its oceans by the global container shipping industry. We will be sailing from Porto over Madeira to the Canary Islands where we will prepare ship and crew for the Atlantic Crossing, which is scheduled for the start of November. Ports of call in Caribbean are Martinique, Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico and Bahamas before returning back to Hamburg/GER via Azores, carrying mostly Rum, Coffee and other fair trade products. We have 10 Trainee spots on offer. For further information, check our website.
