Life on board.
Generally we don't plan to put far to the open sea. Mostly we will be moving inside fjords closed from storms. Please read some recommendations about life on Alter Ego.Sea sickness
is a constitutional peculiarity not illness. 90% of people easily adapt to rolling in the first day. A lot of people even didn't notice it but some people get sick. There is only one way to know you peculiarity. You have to try a yacht journey.
There are different ways how to struggle against sea sickness. Some people prefer keep watch, the other sleep at the deck. Maybe for you will be better to enjoy landscapes or to drink a cup of hot tea. The most important thing is not be afraid of sea sickness. In our Ski&Sail programs 90% of time we spent in fjords and in the mountains.
We know from previous experience that after sea journey you would get car sickness less.
One more recommendation is not to eat greasy food before the first day of journey. Be ready to spend a lot of time in the open at the beginning. The bunks
are situated in the triple and four-seater cabins. The cabins are warm but we recommend you to take a sleeping bag (temperature of comfort 0C).
Take two sets of baselayers. One is for sleeping and the other is for ski-tour. There is a cupboard for drying but it's not huge. We have no cook
in our team. So we cook ourself (if you want to hire a cook ask me and we'll discuss).
We buy food in Russia and Finland before journey. Some food buy on the spot. If it's possible we fish. If you are allergic person write me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Breakfast and dinner are included. Don't forget you favorite snack.Alcohol.
There is prohibition on board during the navigation. Alcohol is very expensive in Norway. Under the low it's prohibited to bring in more than 1 liter of alcohol (stronger 40%) per person. So cheaper to take from home or to buy in Duty Free.
