* FULLY BOOKED * Tall Ships Races – Race 2. Tall Ships Races 2018 second race leg starts in Stavanger, Norway and ends in Harlingen, the Netherlands. As a trainee you will have four days of harbour program in Stavanger and Harlingen. Crew parade, prize giving, crew party, competitions and much more – don’t miss it! Sailing at Vahine is for active people who like to get a challenge at sea. Open for age 15-25 years, age 25+ at request.
Stavanger is a modern port, but retains a small historic district. The lovely old harbour is a favourite stopover for big cruiseships that tower over the buildings. The city has a lively cultural scene, and is surrounded by numerous outdoor destinations well worth a visit. Explore the narrow, rocky Lysefjord and the mountains Preikestolen and Kjerag, or relax on Jæren's beaches. Make sure to bring hiking boots, as the mountains stand over 1000 meters tall.
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.
