Loth Lorien:
Le Havre (FR) - Scheveningen (NL)

16 June - 21 June 2019

* New price! * The Liberty Tall Ships Regatta. Join the Loth Lorien in Le Havre for a wonderful event! Become part of the crew sailing on a traditional Tall Ship: set the sails, navigate, trim and work hand-in-hand with the others to win the race! Many other ships will compete for the first prize. Afterwards you will sail to Scheveningen (just outside of The Hague) where all the vessels will be gathering for a maritime festival. Enjoy the sight of so many classic ships together before you disembark and make you way back home, now filled with exciting new experiences! Open to Windseekers aged 15 and older. Ages 15-18 accompanied by an adult. Please notice that participation in the Scheveningen harbour festival is not included in this journey.

Ports

Le Havre is a large north French maritime commercial and passenger port established in the early XVI century. The city in on the UNESCO World Heritage Site for its historical buildings and is considered a birthplace of impressionism. Walk in the steps of Monet and discover the places you know from modern art. Take a hiking tour, visit one of the nearby castles (chateau), the Graville abbey, see the hanging gardens or take a walk in one of the many city parks.

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.

    Sailing is inherently a "green" activity. Although, like most of the other things we do on this planet, sailing does contribute to the environmental pollution, we do a lot on board to stop it. And hopefully good habits learned on …
