Tecla:
Harlingen (NL) - Ullapool (GB)

06 May - 20 May 2021

From Netherlands to Scotland. Setting sail from Harlingen this 2-week voyage will take you north to the Orkney and maybe even Shetland Islands before finishing in Ullapool. The weather in May can still be very unpredictable, so this voyage really depends on the natural conditions. Spend some time discovering the Dutch Waddenzee, then sail across the North Sea towards Scotland. Explore the rough nature and look for traces of the Vikings on the Orkneys and, possibly, the Outer Hebrides. Enjoy springtime on board the Tecla and have a wonderful adventure for the start of the 2021 season! Open for all ages, minimum age 15 years.

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.

Ullapool, despite its small size is the largest settlement for many miles around and a major tourist destination of Scotland. The village was founded in 1788 as a herring port by the British Fisheries Society. A few Cordyline australis or New Zealand cabbage trees are grown in the town and are often mistaken for palms. The harbour is still the edge of the village, used as a fishing port, yachting haven, and ferry port. Enjoy the beautiful surroundings here.

Tecla

One of the most splendid. Experts say this solid, authentic-rigged ship is not only one of the most beautiful herring loggers, but also a very good sailor. She has won several prizes during the Tall Ships Races and Regattas. Tecla …
