Bark Europa:
Hoorn (NL) - Punta Arenas (CL)

08 September - 19 December 2015

In September the Bark Europa start the special voyage commemorating the 400th year anniversary of the discovery of Cape Horn. The first leg start in the Dutch city of Hoorn, birth town and sponsor of Cornelis Schouten, the discoverer of the Cape horn on 29th January 1616. Traditional vessels will bring the Bark Europa to the Texelse Reede, where from the 15th to the 19th century ships were awaiting the right weather conditions to start their voyage on the traditional trade routes. Bark EUROPA awaits us for an adventure exploring the oceans, via Lisbon, Tenerife, Cabo Verde, Salvador and Cape Horn to Punta Arenas. When possible the ship will make a a full Cape Horn rounding in the best maritime tradition, under sail only sails. You can join the all the 4 legs of this special voyage of the 400th year anniversary of discovery Cape Horn! Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Hoorn is a municipality in the Netherlands, located on the IJsselmeer. The city was established in the eighth century and later developed into a major trading center. Hoorn still has a lovely old inner city with many well-preserved historical houses and buildings that harken back to its prosperous history. Several small museums are worth a visit. You can explore the flat surrounding countryside dotted with small villages by bicycle, or easily reach Amsterdam from here by public transportation.

Punta Arenas, a regional capital in Chile, is located on the Brunswick peninsula north of the Strait of Magellan. The city is often a base for Antarctic expeditions. Originally established as a penal colony in the 19th century, Punta Arenas has developed into a major logistic centre. The surrounding nature is inhospitable, but the locals more than make up for it. Punta Arenas offers sharp contrasts, between affluence and poverty, between historic and modern. An interesting place to visit!
