Scheveningen (NL) - Belfast (GB)

17 June - 27 June 2015

Lighthouse tour! Don’t forget to bring your camera, because you will see lots of spectacular vistas on this Journey from Scheveningen to Belfast. The Tall Ship Eendracht is well known amongst Windseekers from all over the World, so expect to make fast friends on deck as you set course across the North Sea. Help out on deck and below, and spot lighthouses such as Westkapelle, Ramsgate, Calais, Cap Gris Nez, and the famous Beachy Head near Eastbourne. Ultimately, the wind will decide your final course, but expect a few stops along the way – perfect opportunity to stretch your legs and explore new scenery! Eendracht is a fast Tall Ship, so if you’re a speek freak, your in for a treat! This Journey will bring you new experiences, new sights to see, and wind. Lots and lots of wind. Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years

Ports

Scheveningen is a popular sea resort in the Netherlands, a stone’s throw away from the seat of government in The Hague. It has a busy marina and a lively (somewhat kitschy) promenade – great for an afternoon of sightseeing. You’ll also find plenty to do nearby. Go for a walk in the dune landscape or take a tour around the Palace of Peace. Visit Madurodam to see the Netherlands rebuilt in miniature, check out the city centre of The Hague, or explore the beach and perhaps even go kitesurfing.

Belfast is the capital and the largest city of Northern Ireland. It started out as a small hamlet with fertile land along the mouth of the Lagan. Soon, marauders and pirates realised Belfast’s lough was deep and their shores were the perfect haven for repairing sea ravaged ships. Today Belfast is a wonderful city to explore! Visit the Titanic quarter waterfront, the Ulster Museum, or the Odyssey area where you'll find lots of entertainment. And spend some time in one of Belfast's many pubs.
