*Limited availability: last place for a man in 4-person cabin* The Liberty Tall Ships Regatta. Join the Oosterschelde for this short but exciting journey, part of a large Sail Training International event. During your stay on board you will see other Tall Ships and race them on the English Channel before reaching Scheveningnen, just out of The Hague. There you can disembark right after arrival or choose to stay for a bit longer and join the Parade of Sail for and additional EUR 65. Important: you will take a bus from Rouen with the other trainees from a set meeting point. The bus will bring you to the Ship and you will sail out towards Le Havre to spend the night there before starting the race the following morning. Open for all ages, minimum age 15 years. Last places: contact email@example.com to confirm availability.
Rouen is a city with long history located on the River Seine in Normandy, North France. It’s also the venue of L’Armada, a sailing festival which will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2019. When visiting Rouen you can’t miss the Gothic Cathedral and Palais de Justice. For nature lovers the Roumare Forest just outside the city is the place to be, while art enthusiasts should visit Musee Secq des Tournelles – the wrought iron museum.
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.
