* FULLY BOOKED * The Tall Ships Races 2018 – Race 2 from Stavanger to Harlingen! With Tall Ships from all over the world you will Race together in a friendly competition. On board you will participate in the daily working of the ship alongside professional seamen: standing lookout, manning the helm, helping in the galley and hoisting sail. Trainees who would like to learn more about navigating are at the right ship this leg! In Harlingen you will be welcome to join all activities organised for the crew. For all ages, minimum age 15 years.
Stavanger is a modern port, but retains a small historic district. The lovely old harbour is a favourite stopover for big cruiseships that tower over the buildings. The city has a lively cultural scene, and is surrounded by numerous outdoor destinations well worth a visit. Explore the narrow, rocky Lysefjord and the mountains Preikestolen and Kjerag, or relax on Jæren's beaches. Make sure to bring hiking boots, as the mountains stand over 1000 meters tall.
Harlingen is a trade and fishing port in Friesland, the Netherlands. The town itself is over a thousand years old, and you’ll find several historic streets in the old city centre. Its small size makes it easy to explore the town on foot. In 2014 Harlingen was a port of call for the Tall Ships Races. The town operates ferry lines to the Frisian Islands, a unique nature reserve with populations of seals, birds, and other wildlife. With its ‘gezellige’ pubs the town is a great place for a stopover.
