Conference Dinner on the Rickmer Rickmers (September 20, 2019)
The conference dinner of the 25th Latin-American Colloquium of Geoscience is sponsored by Wintershall Dea Deutschland AG and will be held on the Rickmer Rickmers, a three-masted cargo sailing ship built in 1896 and at anchor in the Port of Hamburg since 1983 (https://www.rickmer-rickmers.de/). The 97 m long and 12.2 m wide vessel now serves as a museum ship and conveys the highly eventful history of the Rickmer Rickmers as a freight sailing ship and marine training vessel. For the delegates of the conference it might be of interest to know that the vessel transported nitre from Chile in the early 20th century.
The conference dinner will start with a reception at 7 p.m. on the upper deck of the vessel. The buffet will be served in the vessels’ hulk, which has been restored neatly to a restaurant including a bar. During their stay on board the Rickmer Rickmers, delegates will have full access to the exhibitions on the museum decks. Because of steep staircases, access to the Rickmer Rickmers is not recommended for disabled persons with strongly reduced mobility. There is no wheelchair access. Please wear name tag for access to the Rickmer Rickmers.
