Christian Radich is a beautiful old sailing ship. Her homeport is Oslo, at Akershusutstikkeren below Akershus Fortress. From September to May the ship is out sailing, but in May she is back in Oslo. The ship is normally closed to visitors except groups on request. From the kiosk at the dock, you can sign up for membership in Friends of Christian Radich and buy souvenirs. In the summer you can join on the summer voyages. The ship has had a dramatic history as a sail training ship since its launch in 1937. The recent years, the ship has divided its time between the charter market, sightseeing tours, summer trips to foreign ports with paying trainees on board, the Tall Ships Races and large sailing events in various European ports.

cruisse on the most beautiful sailboat
Jun 2019
the team on board was great. We the visitors became a part of the crew, everybody har their work to do. People joining these kind of adventures are a special social group.
My trip was from Oslo to Stavanger, but the boat also crosses the Atlantic and sail in the Mediteranian.
Food on board was delicious, but you are not allowed to drink alcoholic. I thought that I would be the oldest on board, but I was not. Thhe youngest was about 15 and perhaps the oldest ....75?

A Favorite Movie Location Found!
Jun 2018 • Friends
Many years ago I saw a movie entitled “Windjammer” which told the tale of a group of young Norwegian boys setting sail aboard a three-masted sailing ship, the Christian Radich, which sailed from Oslo, Norway to the East Coast of the US and back again. This film was important to me mainly because it was filmed in one of those wonderful widescreen movie processes, Cinemiracle. To make a long story short (too late), when I took a cruise recently, one of the ports of call was Oslo, and I was thrilled to find that the same ship was tied to a pier, and there it was for me to see as a bonus for attending the Oslo Opera, right across the water. After all these years, the star of this favorite movie was right there! That’s just about all I can say about it, because we didn’t have time to go aboard the ship, although there are tours and even cruises available. But what a joy to see that great ship, a picture of which had graced my TV table for many years.

Wonderful old vessel
Jun 2016 • Couples
This three-masted, full-rigged sailing vessel makes a wonderful sight moored in Oslo Harbour, close to the City Hall. She was built as recently as 1937, specifically as a sail training ship.

Worst Vacation ever
Aug 2015 • Solo
I booked a trip as advertised from Bremerhaven to Amsterdam (from Bremerhaven Sail to Amsterdam sail 2015) One week before the trip i found out that the trip wouldn't end at Amsterdam Sail Amsterdam at all and we had disembark at IJmuiden, missing the best thing of Sail Amsterdam the Sail In Parade. If they made this clear when we booked the trip, we would have booked trip on another ship. Thanks to untrustworthy organisation of Christian Raddich we missed an experience that i can only experience once every 5 years. Thanks Christian Raddich. It's a beatifull ship too bad about the people who run this organisation. Aparently It's all about the money with this organisation. If you like sailing on a Tallship book a trip on a different ship unless you love this ship, but be prepared to be disappointed.

Vi takker for din tilbakemelding. Vi er svært lei oss over at noen av våre medseilere på toktet Bremerhaven - Amsterdam/Ijmuiden hadde forstått det slik at de skulle være med på Sail-in paraden til Amsterdam. Vi har lært at vi skulle ha presisert at dette ikke var inkludert i toktet.

Atlantic Crossing 2012-2013
Jan 2013 • Solo
I was a trainee on Christian Radich for 10 weeks: December 2012 - January 2013, from Canary Island to Carribean - Bermuda and Azores. I had absolutely NO previous sailing experience.

The trip was a truly "lifetime experience". Fantastic crew that taught us how to set and take down sails, to steer and navigate, to live with 80 others in a crowded banjer, sleeping in a hammock, and how to pull the right rope-ends. And more.

The food is quite exceptional: A small team and a small "kitchen" produces 4 meals of hotel quality (and I mean 4-star hotel!) every day.

Being on a sail ship, working the 4-8 watch (seeing every sunrise and sunset for 10 weeks!) was amazing, the Atlantic is very big, and when you're out there the stars are brighter than anywhere else.

The camaraderie among us, the trainees, the crew and the volunteers was also special. There was "safety first" rules, but apart from that, all of us got to push our own boundaries, nobody was forced to do what they weren't ready for - and then most of us climbed higher, faster and worked further out on the beams than we thought was possible!

If you get a chance to do even a short cruise with this amazing ship: DO IT.
