Eendracht:
Rotterdam (NL) - Rotterdam (NL)

19 July - 23 July 2021

Sailing camp for young people aged 15-17. 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 – after all it’s about the journey, not the destination! Keep watch with other trainees: steering, navigating, setting sails… you are the ones who sail the ship! Of course, under the guidance of the professional crew. There will also be enough free time to spend getting to know your shipmates, looking at the endless horizon or simply sitting on deck with a book. Open to young Windseekers aged 15-17. Please be aware that although the crew speaks English and English-speakers are welcome on board, the main language on board will be 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.

STO Garant

This Journey is covered by the STO Garant guarantee. You can find the conditions for this guarantee scheme on STO Garant’s website (www.sto-garant.nl/en/downloads).

This process is automatic and you do not need to do anything else. After receiving your booking, Windseeker will send you detailed information on how and when to pay for your journey – together with all the other important details.

 

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.
