Join the tall ship Morning Star of Revelation in Fredrikstad on July 13th 2019, in the midst of The Tall Ship Races Fredrikstad 2019, for an unforgettable 15 day adventure that will see you travel from Norway to the United Kingdom via The Tall Ships Races Bergen 2019. You'll be getting hands on with setting the sails, steering the ship, keeping watch and more throughout the voyage and the best part is that no experience is required in order to join - you'll be taught everything you need to know before you need to know it at every stage throughout the journey.
If you're hoping to get RYA qualified it will be possible to work toward your RYA Comp Crew or RYA Watch Leader whilst onboard. If you're hoping to earn the Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Residential Award, this voyage is an ideal choice. After onboard briefings and a little time to get to know your shipmates you'll be primed to take part in The Tall Ships Races 2019 as crew of Morning Star of Revelation. You'll be sailing well offshore at times during this voyage so expect challenging conditions throughout and plenty of excitement.
Your journey will begin with you right at the centre of a beautiful parade of sail as the entire Tall Ships Races fleet leaves one after the other in salute to the city. From there you'll cruise along the Scandinavian coast in company with many of those tall ships from across the world, with various activities, cultural experiences and picturesque costal scenery on your itinerary.
This voyage is unique in that you'll get to experience all of the festivities that Bergen will have to offer, including activities, sports and experiences organised to bring the many tall ship crews together in celebration.
From Bergen you may find yourself at the centre of yet another tall ship parade before taking on the North Sea.
Your journey aboard this beautiful Gaff Ketch will end in North Shields, UK where you'll disembark on July 28th.
