Join a Dutch Tall Ship Morgenster for this voyage along the west coast of France. Board the vessel in Bordeaux, where you will see many Tall Ships, Small Ships and Yachts gathered there for the ending of Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta. There is also the Bordeaux Wine Festival happening at the time – book a couple of nights in a hotel before your trip to combine two great experiences! You will get familiar with your Tall Ship before seting course for another French city of La Rochelle. Enjoy sailing with a friendly crew and meet other Windseekers while getting your sea legs. Open to Windseekers of 15 years and older.
Bordeaux is famous for its wine, but the city itself also has a lot to offer. The cathedral, the Place des Quinconces and the Port de La Lune will have you gazing in amazement. The city also has a diverse cultural agenda and a bustling nightlife. To the south of the city you’ll find sandy beaches with enormous dunes that offer great surfing conditions on the waves of the Atlantic ocean. Every two years Bordeaux organizes a harbor festival, with many Tall Ships visiting.
La Rochelle is a coastal city on the west coast of France, with three ports offering shelter from the Bay of Biscay. See the three historic towers of the old port as the 16th century protestant corsairs would have, take a day cycling to the ‘Île de Ré’ bridge-connected island to explore the quaint villages. Popular with cruisers and tourists, the seafront is a place to wine and dine, enjoying the region’s top cuisine.
