Wylde Swan:
Esbjerg (DK) - Scrabster (GB)

18 August - 22 August 2019

Port-to-port delivery. This journey is for people who want to experience as much sailing as possible with fewer stops along the way. During the delivery you will work together with the crew to bring the Ship towards her destination. You will get to know a sailor’s life and get your sea legs while crossing the North Sea. The journey from Denmark to Scotland promises to be an exciting experience. Although there will be as much sailing as possible, due to time constraints you might end up going on motor if necessary. Open to Windseekers aged 15 and older.

Ports

Esbjerg is a beautiful coastal city in the South-West of Denmark, with the second biggest harbour in Denmark – a lively place full of fishing and shipping activities. You can observe the town’s maritime history in its attractions: from the Fisheries- and Maritime Museum, Esbjerg Skibet statue to the Men at Sea monument, everything brings you back to the sea. Visit also the Ribe Vikinge Center, a fun outdoor museum where you will meet the Vikings themselves!
