Eendracht:
Rotterdam (NL) - Rotterdam (NL)

03 August - 09 August 2020

Sailing camp (in Dutch) for young people aged 15-18. 7 days of learning to sail the Eendracht with your peers. Leave the port of Rotterdam and sail where the wind takes you. 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 the adventure you are living and make new friends. Open for Windseekers aged 15-18. 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.
