Rotterdam (NL) (NL) - Rotterdam (NL) (NL)

14 May - 17 May 2015

Cram a whole adventure in four days! Sail the North Sea and maybe even have a stopover in the UK or Belgium, depending on wind and weather. Join the Eendracht for the Ascension Day weekend and get your Windseeker fix on this modern day gaff topsail schooner. While on board, you will learn how to set and trim the sails, help with navigation, keep a lookout and lend a hand with whatever needs done to get the ship where you want it to go. Meet new people, make new friends, and develop your seafaring skills under the guidance of the experienced crew. The North Sea is a challenging sailing area, with its frequent stiff breezes and busy shipping lanes. There’ll be plenty to do and to see! Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years.
