You will embark on Atyla in Harlingen, which will be in plain celebration of the finishing of the Tall Ships Races 2018. There will be port events, concerts, fireworks, food and colorful crew parades.
Harlingen is a quaint little port town, which gained its fortune through fishing and trade. Still today, several commercial boating routes leave from here, on their way to Scandinavia or further. During this time it will be full of life and colorful traditional sailing ships, dressed in flags and crews that have just lived the adventure of their lifetime!
Joining this voyage you'll be part of the Parade of Sail, and you'll be on Atyla while she leaves the port of Harlingen surrounded by all the other sailing vessels that participated in the Tall Ships Races 2018 and with thousands of people watching the spectacular vessels pass by. Already here you will learn how to set sails and which ropes need to be pulled, while working in a team with your crew mates.
After leaving Harlingen we’ll go out to the open sea, where we’ll sail in direction of the south coast of England, learning how to steer the ship, setting a position, the "rules of the road", tying knots, etc.
During the voyage, you will actively participate in all aspects of life on board a traditional sailing boat and take part in coaching and sail training.
The voyage will end in Weymouth, a sheltered bay at the mouth of the River Wey.
You will end your voyage in this popular seaside town in Dorset which is situated halfway along the Jurassic Coast in the South of England. Portland Harbour is very close by and this is where the sailing events for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games were held.
As always, if just one sailing voyage is not enough for you, you should stay with us and sail Atyla to Dublin, to reach yet another country, and the capital of Ireland!
