New price! Board the beautiful Leila in Lowestoft, UK, and sail her across the North Sea to Swedish Halmstad where numerous Tall Ships, Small Ships and Yachts will have started to gather for the start of the Tall Ships Races 2017. Set and trim the sails, steer the vessel and enjoy becoming one with nature in this exciting voyage. Please be aware that on the Leila the meals are only included on the Tall Ships Races legs so for this journey additional fee applies.

Ports

Lowestoft is a town on the North Sea coast of England. It is an old sea port and fishing center. Cherish the atmosphere of the lively harbour with its fountains, coffee shops and little food stands. Visit the Mincarlo – Floating Maritime Museum to learn about the life of fishermen in the old days or an old Lowestoft and East Suffolk Maritime Museum run by volunteers who will happily share their knowledge. For a relaxing afternoon take a walk in Somerleyton Hall and Gardens.

Halmstad is situated on the Swedish west coast, along the Nissan River. The city is famous for its fortress, built by the Danish King Christian IV at the end of the 16th century. A walk around town will reveal much of the city’s rich history and culture, and the cobbled streets in the city centre are dotted with cafes and pubs. Outdoors there’s plenty to do as well, with the nearby Mollegard Nature Reserve well worth a visit. Halmstad offers plenty to soothe your adventure jitters.

    The long days at sea started to take their toll. My 19-year old fellow Windseekers felt their boots start to boil. Time for some whoopie in the wheelhouse!

    In a way we’re having bad luck: the English Channel is an area with a lot of traffic. Unfortunately we cannot see it. On our last day at sea the temperature dropped till 7 degrees (above zero, fortunately) and the …
