A sailing break – travel across the North Sea from the Netherlands to London on board a beautiful Tall Ship Gulden Leeuw. This trip is short and affordable, perfect for anyone who wants a taste of sailing on a large Ship, or for those who don’t have a lot of vacation time but can’t imagine summer without sailing. You will spend an exciting few days on board, learning the ropes, stargazing, watching out for dolphins and enjoying a break from your – undoubtedly busy – life on land. You will reach London just in time for Sail Royal Greenwich event so why not book a couple of additional nights in a hotel and spend the rest of the week exploring the city and other Tall Ships! Open for all Windseekers aged 15 and older.

Ports

Scheveningen is a popular sea resort in the Netherlands, a stone’s throw away from the seat of government in The Hague. It has a busy marina and a lively (somewhat kitschy) promenade – great for an afternoon of sightseeing. You’ll also find plenty to do nearby. Go for a walk in the dune landscape or take a tour around the Palace of Peace. Visit Madurodam to see the Netherlands rebuilt in miniature, check out the city centre of The Hague, or explore the beach and perhaps even go kitesurfing.

London is a centre for business, finance, the arts and tourism. As such, the city has something to offer for everyone. But visiting London by ship makes the experience extra special. Go see a play in West End, explore Soho, or take a tourist bus for a sightseeing ride. Go to Hyde Park, close to Buckingham Palace, if the city bustle is a bit much after an ocean voyage. And work on your cultural karma by visiting a few of the many museums. London is so big you’ll need to revisit to see it all!

    We are adventurers... each of us in our own way. For some... it's facing the sea-sickness of rolling swells and books that move across the table on their own. Or climbing the mast all the way to the top, breathing heavy and heart …
