Ports

Vlissingen, a city in the southwestern Netherlands on the former island of Walcheren. It is best known for its centuries-old harbour as well as shipyards of the Dutch Royal Navy. The longstanding marine traditions can be seen in the Maritime Muzeeum - you can spend hours there! Stretch your legs by taking a little stroll down the Boulevard van Vlissingen with its many establishments and go to see the Panorama Walcheren and the Sint Jacob church.

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.

    Sailing from Harlingen to Tenerife. On board: crew and trainees

    – by Jeske Zijlstra, Deckhand

    After a night of playing with the anchor, it's time to set sail again. Without any sleep, we're preparing the Ship for strong backwinds and high waves. For Barry (the small sail) it’s the perfect time to show up. Carefully putting …
