Ijsselmeer | 11.-13.10.2019
Team spirit, drive and determination are core values that propel the members of the Science-to-Business Marketing Research Centre. This year a team event was organised to face new wet challenges.
The Aldebaran is a fast two mast clipper. The 36 meter long ship was built in 1893 as a river clipper with two masts. The traditional appearance of the ship has been preserved.
With strong wind, partly sunshine and partly rain, the crew went 6 hours at wind force 6 to 7 close reach to Enkhiuzen. Every hand was needed for sailing, mooring, as well as for the wardroom. All common challenges were mastered by all sailors and welded the team closely together. The next day, with no less wind, the ship went broad reach followed by the locks into the Wadden Sea to Harlingen.
For some a first time adventure on board for others than experienced sailors a gymnastic experience. The evenings were used for discussions about the future strategy of the S2BMRC.
