Set the sails, steer, navigate; fish and cook; relax. Fish for microplastics in the ocean and participate in global research with By the Ocean we Unite. Give yourself over to the adventure and enjoy the digital detox, out of mobile service for many days at a time. Become one with nature and find yourself again. Open to Windseekers aged 17+.

Ports

Tortola is the largest island in the Caribbean British Virgin Islands archipelago. With its white-sand beaches and lush green rain forests, Tortola is the quintessential tropical paradise. Whether you prefer to swim and relax on the beach, go for an adventurous hike or visit historical forts, the island has a lot to offer!

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.
