To the Tall Ships Races. Join the Atyla in Kiel, at the end of the famous Kieler Woche sailing festival. You will have the chance to see the other vessels before you embark on a journey to Denmark. Spend 2 days out on the sea, learning to set the sails, steer and navigate. Finally you will reach Aalborg, where the Tall Ships Races 2019 will start. There you will show the ship to the visitors and share your experience with them. You will also have the time to enjoy the Crew Party, Crew Parade, fireworks, and spending time with your new friends. If you have the time, join the earlier journey as well for a special price – see the voyage Scheveningen-Kiel-Aalborg. Open to all Windseekers, minumum age 15 years.
Kiel is a German port town on the Baltic coast, widely known for its yearly ‘Kiel week’ – the biggest yearly regatta in the world! Many thousands of boats and ships of all kinds and eras take part in the parade. Kiel Week is also a festival, Volksfest and fair as well as a maritime event. But Kiel offers more: a slew of museums (zoological, geological, historical, fine art, industrial, and military museums), a city centre with relaxed atmosphere, and the water and shores of the Kieler Fjord.
The Tall Ships Races 2019 will be visiting the grand port of Aalborg. Aalborg has had a love affair with The Tall Ships Races since 1999, when the city hosted the event for the first time. Aalborg is situated at the Liim Fiord where it was founded by Vikings over 1000 years ago. Today Aalborg is a modern city with visible historic roots. Its theatres, symphony orchestra, performance venues, and museums, make Aalborg a great place to wind down after an exhilarating Sail adventure.
