International Exchange at The Tall Ships Races 2022: Cruise in Company. Join the Eendracht for the second leg of the 2022 Tall Ships Races. Sail from the north of the Netherlands, along the Dutch coast, all the way to the Belgian port of Antwerp. Unlike the races, Cruise in Company is not about being the fastest, but rather enjoying the leisurely sailing, stopping by in smaller harbours, or anchoring in a bay for a swim straight from the ship! Of course, you will also learn to sail a large schooner, from hoisting and trimming the sails, to steering and navigating. And making new friends is practically guaranteed! You will reach Antwerp with two days to spare, so that you can enjoy the harbour activities, like the Crew Parade, Crew Party and plenty of other fun events! For Windseekers aged 15-25 (26-28 at request).
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.
This city in Belgium is the capital of Antwerp province. With a population of 510,610 it is the most populous city in Belgium. Its metropolitan area houses around 1,200,000 people. Antwerp is on the River Scheldt, linked to the North Sea by the Westerschelde estuary. The Port of Antwerp is one of the biggest in the world, ranking third in Europe and within the top 20 globally. There is a theory about the name Antwerp: “The wharf where ships berth”.
