Arrive in the harbour of Horta and immerse yourself in the world of sailing and life at sea. Your Journey starts on the 19th of June 2015 at 16:00 hours on the Bark Europa. Step on board and meet the crew and your fellow Windseekers. If you arrive before 16:00, you can store your bags on board and have a look around in the city. The next morning you’ll set course for Cornwall. After an early breakfast you learn how everything works on deck. Together you prepare the Ship and start your Journey.
Your watch mates will be part of your life for the rest of your Journey. Under the guidance of the professional crew you will learn how to sail the ship as an international team of Windseekers working together. You’ll be on watch once by day and once by night. You set the sails, steer the ship, help the cook and clean the ship inside and out. When you are needed, you also can help outside of your watch hours. The watch officer will keep track of the navigation while you are managing the sails.
