From the Netherlands to Denmark. Sail with the square-rigged Morgenster from Scheveningen near the Hague, across the North Sea, to the Danish city of Esbjerg. Enjoy the crossing and get your sea legs in this week-long voyage of about 550 nautical miles. Learn about sailing a Tall Ship, meet the crew of experienced sailors with lots of stories to share, and trainees from different countries. Soon you will have your own stories of crossing the sea under sails! Open to Windseekers of 15 years and older. Advice: come to the Hague a couple days early to enjoy the festivities connected to the Volvo Ocean Race Finish!

Ports

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.

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!
