*Last places available – contact info@windseeker.org before booking * No time for crossing the oceans? Good news! You don’t need to spend weeks on a Tall Ship, you can join even for 3 days. Whether you’re a new Tall Ship sailor and you don’t know whether you’ll enjoy the time on board, or you simply don’t have any more vacation days, this trip is a really nice alternative to longer voyages. You will board in Scheveningen near the Hague, and sail along the coast of the Neterlands to the famous German port of Hamburg. You will help to sail the Ship, with the instructions from profesional crew. This is a perfect Tall Ships sailing taster trip for anyone! Open for all ages, 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.

Hamburg is the second-biggest city in Germany and a second-largest port in Europe. The port itself if a major tourist attraction, with its numerous canals, bridges and buildings from the past eras, as well as the naval museum Museumshafen Oevelgönne.
Hafengeburtstag is a funfair to honor the birthday of the port of Hamburg with a party and a ship parade. Take a walk in the Planten un Blomen Park with its different fascinating sections and cross the Elbe in an old tunnel underneath.
