Morgenster:
Den Helder (NL) - Setubal (PT)

03 November - 18 November 2024

Find the Morgenster berthed in Den Helder, and step on board for a sailing adventure! Sail across the North Sea, through Dover Strait, towards the English Channel. Make a stop along the way, either in Belgium, UK, or France, before setting out to cross the (in)famous Bay of Biscay. The sea might get rough in here, but it is also full of wildlife, so take some time to look for dolphins and seabirds. After a successful crossing, conditions permitting, you will make another stop in the north of Spain, before continuing down the Portuguese coast to the city of Setúbal, an hour’s drive from Lisbon. Here, you’ll say goodbye to your crew mates, taking with you all of the amazing memories.
This voyage is recommended for experienced and fit sailors.
Open to all Windseekers aged 18-73 years. Younger trainees, accompanied by an adult, at request. This booking is covered by VZR Garant (instead of Windseeker’s usual STO Garant).
