Eendracht:
Harlingen (NL) - Rotterdam (NL)

09 August - 11 August 2019

Weekend microadventure on board. For this short voyage you don’t even need to take any holidays from work! Join the Eendracht’s crew on Friday evening in Harlingen for a weekend sail back to the Ship’s homeport in Rotterdam. You will spend two days and nights participating in the watch system, together with the professional crew sailing the Eendracht along the coast of the Netherlands. This short trip is a perfect taster for anyone who can’t decide whether sailing is for them. It’s also a great adventure for any sailors who can’t find the time for a longer journey but want to enjoy sailing even for a short time. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

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.

Rotterdam is the largest port of Europe, and a modern, bustling town. Much of the historic city centre was destroyed during World War II, but extensive rebuilding resulted in a modern, multicultural city with many architectural highlights. Rotterdam has excellent cultural facilities and a diverse nightlife; during the summer the city hosts a large number of events. Discover the city by bicycle and go for a coffee in Hotel New York, the former headquarters of the Holland America Line.
