Atyla:
Dublin (IE) - Le Havre (FR)

02 September - 08 September 2018

A late summer voyage from Ireland to France. You will embark the Atyla in Dublin and get to know the Ship and her crew. The next day you will set the sails together with the others and take the course south towards the English Channel. If the winds are favourable and you make a lot of miles, you can end up anchoring somewhere along the way for a refreshing swim. Enjoy the summer sailing as well as Atyla’s own coaching programme. Finally you will reach Le Havre, which has welcomed Atyla very warmly in 2017. You will have the time to visit this lovely city (or its beach!) before disembarking. Or maybe you’ll stay for the next voyage? Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years. Special price for the first 6 trainees. Sail as a passenger for EUR 1,150,

Ports

Dublin is the capital and largest city of Ireland. It is located on the east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey. Founded as a Viking settlement, the Kingdom of Dublin became Ireland's main city. The city has many landmarks and monuments dating back hundreds of years that you can visit. Walk through one of the many parks Dublin offers; it has more green spaces per square kilometer than any other European capital city. Try a Guiness in an Irish pub, brewed in Dublin since 1759. Cheers!

Le Havre is a large north French maritime commercial and passenger port established in the early XVI century. The city in on the UNESCO World Heritage Site for its historical buildings and is considered a birthplace of impressionism. Walk in the steps of Monet and discover the places you know from modern art. Take a hiking tour, visit one of the nearby castles (chateau), the Graville abbey, see the hanging gardens or take a walk in one of the many city parks.
