Current position of the Eye of the Wind:

Jersey Red Ensign: Exclusive Sale at Auction

 

This ship's flag sailed the seas with the Eye of the Wind for many years. It flew under the starry skies of the North Atlantic, in the storm of the Bay of Biscay and under the Caribbean sun. Wind and weather have left their mark on this flag, which has now been exchanged for a new one in the course of the 2021 shipyard period.

IIn a unique campaign, we would like to auction off this flag for the benefit of the crew's coffers. For a period of more than four months, our crew was no longer allowed to welcome guests on board, and for just as long, there was no more jingling and rustling in the tip box. With your bid you support our crew ... and maybe you will end up owning a unique maritime wall ornament that will be the envy of many.

You can place your bid by sending an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by using the contact form.

The auction ends on Friday, 28 May 2021 at 12:00 p.m. (Berlin/Paris time). Whoever has placed the highest bid by this time will receive the flag at the bid price.

Additional shipping costs are not charged, the net proceeds go into the Eye of the Wind crew's tip box.
    
 

 

CURRENT HIGHEST BID: 333 EUROS
HIGHEST BIDDER: Xxxxxxnx Xxlx

The symbolic starting bid for the flag was 20.12 euros - in allusion to the year 2012, when the previously flown Danish flag on the Eye of the Wind was exchanged for the current Jersey flag (United Kingdom Red Ensign).

The unique collector's item measures approx. 105 x 135 cm ... sometimes more, sometimes less at the blown-out edge. Together with the flag you will receive a certificate of authenticity. If desired, the flag can also be provided with the ship's stamp and the captain's signature, but a longer shipping time may have to be expected then.

The current situation

April 2021

 

Dear friends of the Eye of the Wind,

we carry out sailing trips in the usual way - of course, the safety and health of our guests and crew members are our top priority: a comprehensive hygiene and safety concept, specially tailored to the particularities of ship operation, ensures that the applicable hygiene, clearance and conduct rules are implemented on board. Furthermore, we would like to ask you to comply with the applicable regulations when going ashore in the port and to reduce contacts with persons outside the crew to the necessary minimum. Details of this are given to all fellow sailors in a briefing by our crew or in advance by the ship's office.

In the interest of your own health as well as the health of the other guests and crew members, we must ask all fellow passengers to undergo an Antigen test ("rapid test") or a PCR test (not a self-test!) before the start of the journey. Your negative test result must not be older than two days at the start of the journey and must be presented when checking in on board. In the event of a positive test result, you are unfortunately not permitted to take part in the journey.

We ask all fellow travellers for their understanding in view of these special circumstances, which we cannot influence. Many thanks! We will keep you informed about further findings.

Please contact us if you have any questions on this subject. All guests who have already booked a trip will be informed in a covering letter about further details on this subject.

Your team of the Eye of the Wind
