Wylde Swan:
Scheveningen (NL) - Aalborg (DK)

27 June - 02 July 2019

North Sea Feeder Race: from The Netherlands to Denmark. Board Wylde Swan in Scheveningen (just outside of The Hague). Enjoy a friendly race with other vessels while learning to sail an impressive Tall Ship. Set the sails, navigate, steer and look out for your competitors (or maybe dolphins?). Enjoy several days of sailing and being out on the sea, without the everyday problems. Then – weather permitting – explore some of the ports in the beautiful Northen regions of Denmark. Arrive in Aalborg where many international vessels will start gathering for the opening festival of the Tall Ships Races. Consider booking an independent accommodation in Aalborg for the next several days to enjoy the festivities yourself. Open to Windseekers aged 15 and older.

Ports

Scheveningen is a popular sea resort in the Netherlands, a stone’s throw away from the seat of government in The Hague. It has a busy marina and a lively (somewhat kitschy) promenade – great for an afternoon of sightseeing. You’ll also find plenty to do nearby. Go for a walk in the dune landscape or take a tour around the Palace of Peace. Visit Madurodam to see the Netherlands rebuilt in miniature, check out the city centre of The Hague, or explore the beach and perhaps even go kitesurfing.

The Tall Ships Races 2019 will be visiting the grand port of Aalborg. Aalborg has had a love affair with The Tall Ships Races since 1999, when the city hosted the event for the first time. Aalborg is situated at the Liim Fiord where it was founded by Vikings over 1000 years ago. Today Aalborg is a modern city with visible historic roots. Its theatres, symphony orchestra, performance venues, and museums, make Aalborg a great place to wind down after an exhilarating Sail adventure.
