Delivery to the Tall Ships Races – adult voyage across the North Sea. Join Challenge Wales in Aberdeen, Scotland and embark on an adventurous journey to Denmark.

Become part of the crew, working in shifts – watches – day and night to keep the Challenge Wales on course. Finally, after a few days of nothing but the sea, sky, sunsets and stars, you will see land again! Reach Aalborg in the north of Denmark and enjoy the maritime festival. Dozens of Tall Ships, Small Ships and Yachts will arrive around the same time, their international crews ready to celebrate. Join the exclusive activities for crews and enjoy exchanging your sailing stories with others. This is an adult voyage for Windseekers aged 18-75.
Aberdeen, the silver city with the golden sands, lies on the Scottish east coast. The city has been settled for over 8000 years, so you’ll find plenty of historic landmarks as you amble across town. Aberdeen is also famous for its many parks and gardens. The city hosts several festivals year round, so check out the cultural agenda while you’re there. And take some time to spend in one of the many wonderful pubs, where you can strike up a conversation with the locals. But don’t peek under kilts!
The Tall Ships Races 2019 will be visiting the grand port of Aalborg. Aalborg has had a love affair with The Tall Ships Races since 1999, when the city hosted the event for the first time. Aalborg is situated at the Liim Fiord where it was founded by Vikings over 1000 years ago. Today Aalborg is a modern city with visible historic roots. Its theatres, symphony orchestra, performance venues, and museums, make Aalborg a great place to wind down after an exhilarating Sail adventure.
