Oosterschelde:
Bermuda (BM) - Boston (US)

04 June - 17 June 2017

Rendez-vous 2017: Bermuda-Boston, Race 3. Amongst many other ships from all corners of the world we start the race to Boston. The ‘Oosterschelde’ is built as a cargo vessel and is not the quickest, but despite her composition and age and with some extra effort of us, the crew, we can win. This race is part of Rendez-vous Tall Ships Regatta 2017. Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years

Ports

Bermuda is a group of low-forming volcanoes in the North Atlantic Ocean, consisting of 181 islands. The first known European explorer to reach Bermuda was Spanish sea captain Juan de Bermúdez in 1503, after whom the islands are named. Bermuda's culture is a mix of Native American, Spanish-Caribbean, English, Irish, and Scots. It is a British Overseas Territory. Bermuda has a humid subtropical climate, pink sand beaches and clear, cerulean blue ocean water. Go snorkeling to see the coral reef.

Boston is the capital of the Massachusetts state, well-known for its excellent universities: Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. But there is more to Boston than education! Visit the Fenway Park sports complex or one of the many museums in town. The beautiful waterfront invites for a stroll and, once you're there, don't miss visiting the Tea Party Ship replica.
