Bark Europa:
Scheveningen (NL) - Seville (ES)

03 September - 18 September 2019

Due South! Spend the last days of late summer on board Bark Europa, chasing the sun from Netherlands to Spain. Board the Tall Ship in Scheveningen, outside of The Hague, for two weeks of sailing towards Seville in southern Spain. You will sail along the coast of Netherlands and Beglium, past the English Channel to the Atlantic. Then cross the Bay of Biscay, making your way towards Spain and Portugal. Spend your days learning to sail a Tall Ship, looking for dolphins and making friends, and your evenings singing shanties and looking at the stars. Disconnect from your daily duties, stop worrying about your cellphone, and enjoy coming back to nature. Open to Windseekers of 15 years and older. Limited places in 2-person cabins available.

Ports

Scheveningen is a popular sea resort in the Netherlands, a stone’s throw away from the seat of government in The Hague. It has a busy marina and a lively (somewhat kitschy) promenade – great for an afternoon of sightseeing. You’ll also find plenty to do nearby. Go for a walk in the dune landscape or take a tour around the Palace of Peace. Visit Madurodam to see the Netherlands rebuilt in miniature, check out the city centre of The Hague, or explore the beach and perhaps even go kitesurfing.
