Bark Europa:
Salvador (BR) - Punta Arenas (CL)

04 November - 19 December 2015

Attempt Cape Horn Rounding! In September the Bark Europa start the special voyage commemorating the 400th year anniversary of the discovery of Cape Horn. This will be the fourth part of this special voyage where the first leg started 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 fouth leg of the 400th year anniversary including rounding Cape Horn! Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Salvador da Bahia in Brazil used to be the colonial capital, and is one of the oldest cities in the Americas. Today it is a lively place with 3.5 million inhabitants, and noted for its cuisine, music, and architecture. Around Salvador you can go swimming, sailing, diving, surfing, and underwater fishing in the bays and inlets. But don’t forget to visit both the High City and the Low City, as they offer shopping, parks, and entertainment for locals and seafaring visitors alike.

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!
