During the summer period, the ship offers voyages for school classes, arrangements for companies and private parties, and participates in the Tall Ships’ Races.

With 1.360 m2 of sail, almost 9000 meters of rope and a 37.7 meters tall main mast, “Christian Radich” has proven hard to beat on the regattas. The famous deck is an attractive arena for entertainment in port.
