Tall Ships Races 2018 – Race 2. In the second – and last – race of this year’s Tall Ships Races you will sail from Norway to the Netherlands. Your adventure will begin when you leave the port in a Parade of Sail, then make your way to the starting line of the race. From then, an exciting journey will follow as you will try to reach the finish line first – and win one of many other trophies along the way! In port there will be an awards ceremony, lots of activities for all the crews and the party where you will get to meet a lot of other young sailors from many different countries. Open for Windseekers aged 16-25.
Stavanger is a modern port, but retains a small historic district. The lovely old harbour is a favourite stopover for big cruiseships that tower over the buildings. The city has a lively cultural scene, and is surrounded by numerous outdoor destinations well worth a visit. Explore the narrow, rocky Lysefjord and the mountains Preikestolen and Kjerag, or relax on Jæren's beaches. Make sure to bring hiking boots, as the mountains stand over 1000 meters tall.
Harlingen is a trade and fishing port in Friesland, the Netherlands. The town itself is over a thousand years old, and you’ll find several historic streets in the old city centre. Its small size makes it easy to explore the town on foot. In 2014 Harlingen was a port of call for the Tall Ships Races. The town operates ferry lines to the Frisian Islands, a unique nature reserve with populations of seals, birds, and other wildlife. With its ‘gezellige’ pubs the town is a great place for a stopover.
"I learned a lot about both sailing and sustainability, and the social life was amazing."
