*FULLY BOOKED* The Tall Ships Races 2022: Cruise in Company. Set course for Belgium in this beautiful journey alonge the coast of the Netherlands. Join Cruise in Company – a unique leg of the Tall Ships Races, where you don’t have to hurry anywhere! This journey will take you on an exploration of the Dutch coast, while you’re sailing the Thalassa on the North Sea. Along the way there will be plenty of time to learn how to sail a Tall Ship. Together with other trainees you will hoist and trim the sails, practice knots, keep a lookout, steer, navigate and so much more. Perhaps you will stop somewhere on the way to stretch your new sea legs, or anchor in a bay for a refreshing swim in the sea. Finally, after a week on board, you will reach Antwerp with enough time to enjoy the port activities. Visit other Tall Ships, take part in Crew Parade and dance at the Crew Party before saying goodbye to your new friends. Open to Windseekers aged 15-35.

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”.
