International Exchange at The Tall Ships Races 2022: Race 1. Ready – set – go! Do you love adventure, action and fun? Then the Tall Ships Races with the Eendracht are for you! Grab your bag, get on board and discover the world of sea sailing together with your peers. Leave the Danish port city of Esbjerg in a Parade of Sail and make your way to the starting line. Then race other Tall Ships across the sea, sailing towards the Dutch city of Harlingen. Learn to sail while competing in one of the most exciting Tall Ships events in the world! Steer, navigate, keep the lookout; learnt to trim the sails, make knots, and of course meet new friends on board! Reach Harlingen in time to spend the last two days in port, participating in the events, from Crew Party, to Crew Parade, concerts, games and fireworks. Are you in? For Windseekers aged 15-25 years.

Ports

Esbjerg is a beautiful coastal city in the South-West of Denmark, with the second biggest harbour in Denmark – a lively place full of fishing and shipping activities. You can observe the town’s maritime history in its attractions: from the Fisheries- and Maritime Museum, Esbjerg Skibet statue to the Men at Sea monument, everything brings you back to the sea. Visit also the Ribe Vikinge Center, a fun outdoor museum where you will meet the Vikings themselves!

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.

What does it mean?

In short: you do not pay the booking amount to Windseeker but instead into an escrow account. This trust account holds your payment in reserve until your journey’s end. The booking amount is then released to Windseeker on the day after your trip ends. If Windseeker or the Ship should become financially insolvent before the end of your trip, STO Garant will implement the guarantee. The Guarantee Scheme details how you can make a claim under the guarantee in such cases. You can read more about this here.
