Morgenster:
Fecamp (FR) - Esbjerg (DK)

03 July - 09 July 2022

Delivery to The Tall Ships Races 2022. Find the Morgenster moored among many other traditional vessels during a maritime event in Fecamp, France. Leave the harbour in the morning and sail in the direction of Dover, soon leaving the English Channel behind. Enter the North Sea and make your way up the coast of the Netherlands and towards Denmark. Be on lookout for other Tall Ships as they all sail towards Esbjerg for the start of the Tall Ships Races. Finally, after sailing 550 nautical miles, you will reach your destination with a couple of days to spare. Spend them participating in the festivities that Esbjerg prepared for the event, enjoying the activities together with the crews of many other vessels. Open to all Windseekers over 15 years old.

Ports

Fecamp is a port town in the Normandy region of France. Its long-standing maritime and fishing traditions date back at least to the 10th century. Since then many Tall Ships have left Fecamp on cod fishing campaigns. It is also home to a Benedictine Fecamp Abbey, founded in middle ages. Its Palais Bénédictine is now open to visitors and well worth a visit. You can also simply enjoy the maritime atmosphere of the town, strolling down a beautiful harbour and having seafood in a local restaurants.

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!
