Eendracht:
Rotterdam (NL) - Rotterdam (NL)

13 July - 17 July 2020

Sailing camp (in Dutch) for young people aged 14-16. Spend 5 days on board the Eendracht, learning to sail and meeting new people. Leave the port of Rotterdam and sail where the wind takes you! On the way to the next port you will keep watch with other trainees: steering, navigating, setting sails… you are the ones who sail the ship! Of course, under the careful eye of the professional crew. Spend your time out on the sea getting to know new people, looking for dolphins and admiring the stars without light pollution. There’s no wi-fi on board, making it a perfect time to disconnect and focus on other things. During this time you will try to visit one other port – weather permitting – before making your way back to Rotterdam, full of new memories and pictures to remember them by. Open for Windseekers aged 14-16. Language on board: Dutch.

Ports

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.
