International Exchange at The Tall Ships Races 2022: Race 1. Are you ready for an adventure? Join the Dutch Tall Ship Morgenster for an exciting race in an international group! Sail from Denmark to the Netherlands, racing other Tall Ships to be the first on the finishing line. Learn to sail a traditional vessel, from hoisting the sails and making knots, to steering, navigating and – if you want – climbing the masts. Enjoy being out on the North Sea, catching the fresh sea breeze and looking for dolphins in th waves. Meet young people from different countries, try their national dishes, play games and make friends. Reach Harlingen in time to spend the last two days in port, participating in harbour events: march across the town in a Crew Parade, represent your ship in the competitions with other crews, and then dance at the Crew Party. For Windseekers aged 15-25 years, 26-28 at request.
Esbjerg is a beautiful coastal city in the South-West of Denmark, with the second biggest harbour in Denmark – a lively place full of fishing and shipping activities. You can observe the town’s maritime history in its attractions: from the Fisheries- and Maritime Museum, Esbjerg Skibet statue to the Men at Sea monument, everything brings you back to the sea. Visit also the Ribe Vikinge Center, a fun outdoor museum where you will meet the Vikings themselves!
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.

In short: you do not pay the booking amount to Windseeker but instead into an escrow account. This trust account holds your payment in reserve until your journey’s end. The booking amount is then released to Windseeker on the day after your trip ends. If Windseeker or the Ship should become financially insolvent before the end of your trip, STO Garant will implement the guarantee. The Guarantee Scheme details how you can make a claim under the guarantee in such cases. You can read more about this here.
