07 August - 20 August 2017

New price! Sail the Leila from Szczecin, Poland, across the North Sea, towards Lowesoft in Great Britain. Enjoy the late summer voyage, during which you will be a part of the crew. Set the sails, steer the vessel and make sure everything runs smoothly. Become one with nature and experience life on a sea. Please be aware that on the Leila the meals are only included on the Tall Ships Races legs so for this journey additional fee applies. Open to Windseekers of 16 years and older (12-16 accompanied by an adult and at request).

Ports

Szczecin in North-Western Poland has a deep commitment to sail training. Discover the Underground City Trails: a network of bunkers from WWII with their unique atmosphere. If you’re more of an outdorsy type, take a canoe along the Odra river or explore Bukowe Hills which hide the ruins of old bridges and are home to numerous boars and deer. Visit one of many museums or the Castle of Pomeranian Dukes or the beautiful rose gardens.

Lowestoft is a town on the North Sea coast of England. It is an old sea port and fishing center. Cherish the atmosphere of the lively harbour with its fountains, coffee shops and little food stands. Visit the Mincarlo – Floating Maritime Museum to learn about the life of fishermen in the old days or an old Lowestoft and East Suffolk Maritime Museum run by volunteers who will happily share their knowledge. For a relaxing afternoon take a walk in Somerleyton Hall and Gardens.
