Kapitan Borchardt:
Blyth (UK) - Gothenburg (SE)

28 August - 04 September 2016

Join the Kapitan Borchardt and her crew for the experience of a lifetime, for the North Sea Tall Ships Regatta 2016. The regatta will start at the 29th of August and will be approximately 500 nautical miles. Learn the ropes, cross the finish line and enjoy a Journey you will never forget! In Gothenburg you will be welcomed with an epic crew party and crewparty. 2016 is a special year for Tall Ships events. The Tall Ships Races 2016 will be celebrating a diamond anniversary as it will be sixty years since the first Tall Ships race in 1956. And the North Sea Tall Ships Regatta will be held for only the second time in six years – so we are particularly pleased that the Kapitan Borchardt will be visiting two excellent, but contrasting ports. 2 berth cabin at request. Open to Windseekers of all ages, minium age 15 years.

Ports
