Copenhagen (DK) - Copenhagen (DK)

18 August - 25 August 2024

Sail out of Copenhagen in a beautiful journey exploring the Baltic Sea. Sail to Sweden or Poland, making stops in different places to stretch your sea legs. This sailing trip is perfect for adventurers who want to experience the splendour of the Baltic Sea, surrounded by a mix of culture and nature. Whether you are a seasoned sailor or have never hoisted a sail before, this trip is open to everyone. And since the Baltic Sea is sheltered by land, this adventure is also ideal for families with children.
This is a family-friendly journey open to all Windseekers over 5 years of age (participants aged 5-15 must be accompanied by an adult).

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.
