Harlingen (NL) - Antwerp (BE)

16 July - 24 July 2022

Tall Ships Races 2022: Cruise in Company. In this leg you will have more time to enjoy the leuisurely sailing, perhaps explore a small port along the way, or stop by in a bay and drop an anchor for a swim. The Patricia will take you on a journey all the way from Harlingen, down the Dutch coast towards Antwerp. Along the way you will learn about sailing from her crew. Steer, navigate, trim the sails, and don’t forget to admire the sunsets as sea and stare at the stars without light pollution. Spend the last two days of your adventure in Antwerp, participating in crew-exclusive events, such as Crew Party, award ceremony and, of course, the famous Crew Parade! For all Windseekers aged 15+

Ports

Harlingen is a trade and fishing port in Friesland, the Netherlands. The town itself is over a thousand years old, and you’ll find several historic streets in the old city centre. Its small size makes it easy to explore the town on foot. In 2014 Harlingen was a port of call for the Tall Ships Races. The town operates ferry lines to the Frisian Islands, a unique nature reserve with populations of seals, birds, and other wildlife. With its ‘gezellige’ pubs the town is a great place for a stopover.

This city in Belgium is the capital of Antwerp province. With a population of 510,610 it is the most populous city in Belgium. Its metropolitan area houses around 1,200,000 people. Antwerp is on the River Scheldt, linked to the North Sea by the Westerschelde estuary. The Port of Antwerp is one of the biggest in the world, ranking third in Europe and within the top 20 globally. There is a theory about the name Antwerp: “The wharf where ships berth”.

STO Garant

This Journey is covered by the STO Garant guarantee. You can find the conditions for this guarantee scheme on STO Garant’s website (www.sto-garant.nl/en/downloads).

This process is automatic and you do not need to do anything else. After receiving your booking, Windseeker will send you detailed information on how and when to pay for your journey – together with all the other important details.

 

What does it mean?

In short: you do not pay the booking amount to Windseeker but instead into an escrow account. This trust account holds your payment in reserve until your journey’s end. The booking amount is then released to Windseeker on the day after your trip ends. If Windseeker or the Ship should become financially insolvent before the end of your trip, STO Garant will implement the guarantee. The Guarantee Scheme details how you can make a claim under the guarantee in such cases. You can read more about this here.
