Mile builders are an affordable way to join a passage aboard three-master Thalassa. This is a proper offshore passage-making experience and non-stop navigation, night sails and long distances are the order of the day. Be prepared to participate in the watch, hoist and trim the sails and help maintain the ship as an integral part of the crew. You don´t need any previous sailing experience – the professional and experienced crew will teach you everything you need to know – but any experience you do have will be put to very good use. Sailing is always hungry business and we understand the need for good, hearty food on board. Our talented chef will entice your senses and completely satisfy both your taste buds and your stomach throughout the crossing.
Thalassa mile builders offer a great opportunity to gain sailing skills and sea miles and to enjoy an exceptional adventure on the open ocean.
