  • On ships of the brown fleet, the sailor (mate) is on the front deck. He, or she, has the task of guiding the passengers in hoisting the sails, handling the sheets etc etc. The mate is sometimes also called ‘front deck manager’ or ‘sailing technical employee’. A sailor is usually a skipper in training. By sailing, he collects sailing time that is necessary for the sailing certificate. Unlike the skipper, a mate often changes ships every year. Sailors that change ship every week are also called “calipers” or “sliding gauge” …

    In 2013 Bas joined us on the Spes Mea. Born & raised in Soest in 1988, Bas followed VMBO car technology. After school he went to work via AB-posting at various projects. In the winter he saws Christmas trees in the Ardennes for various municipalities in the country. Because the sea attracted, the offing was chosen with the ‘Phoenix’, a 2-mast barge. The home port of the ‘Phoenix’ is Hoorn on the Markermeer. He liked sailing very much, but in the second season he preferred to sail on the Wadden Sea. The Spes Mea was found via a colleague and the new home base for Bas was Harlingen.
