Eendracht:
Madeira (PT) - Brest (FR)

28 February - 12 March 2022

From Madeira to Europe. Experience the ocean in all its simplicity. Board the Eendracht in the beautiful Madeira for a crossing to nothern France. Spend several days out on the open sea: no mobile coverage, no television and no internet. Learn to sail, from handling the ropes and sails to steering and navigating. Make new friends. Enjoy the nature around you and re-discover life’s simple pleasures: search the waves for dolphins, look at the stars without the light pollution and gaze at the horizon at sunset. Depending on the weather conditions you will sail where the wind takes you, and see what else the adventure will bring before disembarking in Brest. Open to Windseekers aged 15-80.

Ports

Brest is a major French port on the Atlantic coast, historically of strategic importance. Much of the town was destroyed during World War II, but some historic landmarks remain. Today Brest is an important navy port, so expect to see war ships berthed in the harbor. Every four years, Brest hosts the international festival of the sea, boats and sailors, with many Tall Ships attending. South of Brest you will find national park d’Armorique, a tranquil reserve where you can escape from the city.

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.
