Oosterschelde:
Scheveningen (NL) - Brest (FR)

01 July - 09 July 2020

Coastal Explorer. Board Oosterschelde in Scheveningen, just outside of The Hague. Get to know the crew and set out for a voyage to Brest. There will be enough time to stop for a visit alog the way (weather permitting), and the idea is to take part in a maritime festival in the French harbour of Fécamp. On baord you will learn to sail a Tall Ship, working in watches with other trainees and crew. You will also have enough time off to relax on deck with a good book, play an instrument or simply chat with your new friends! Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

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.

Brest is a major French port on the Atlantic coast, historically of strategic importance. Much of the town was destroyed during World War II, but some historic landmarks remain. Today Brest is an important navy port, so expect to see war ships berthed in the harbor. Every four years, Brest hosts the international festival of the sea, boats and sailors, with many Tall Ships attending. South of Brest you will find national park d’Armorique, a tranquil reserve where you can escape from the city.
