Join the Belem and her fantastic crew for the experience of a lifetime. During Race 2 of the Tall Ships Races 2016 you will set sail from Lisbon to Cadiz. You will sail the Ship together as fast as you can. Set your course over the Atlantic Ocean to the South and experience the adventure of the biggest sail race of the year. Learn the ropes, cross the finish line and enjoy a Journey you will never forget! You have even the chance to see dolphins or whales around Gibraltar. In Cadiz you will be welcomed with an epic crew party, where you will meet the trainees of other ships. Open to Windseekers age 16-25 years.
Lisbon has a long and varied history as a major trading hub, much of which is still visible in the old city centre. Discover Alfama, the old quarters with its many old alleys, steps and the Lisbon Cathedral. The famous tram line 28 will get you there – an experience in and of itself. And be sure to check out a fado concert if you want to learn about saudade – loss, yearning and comfort, all rolled into one. Emotions that all seafarers will get to know one way or the other…
The oldest city in Spain, with a wealth of historic landmarks. Water is never far away, as the old town is built on a narrow stretch of land jutting out into the Mediterranean Sea. Get lost in the Old town with its many narrow, winding streets and visit one of the many parks that dot the city. Its many cathedrals and plazas are also well worth a visit. Go to La Caleta beach, at La Viña, the old fisherman quarter. Go catch a Flamenco concert and feast your taste buds with the fresh sea foods.
"As crew, there is nothing better then standing back and seeing the trainees do all the work - and do it perfectly!"
