Tall Ship Morgenster:
Antwerp (BE) – Arendal (NO) - Kiel (DE)
21st of July to the 2nd of August 2024
Sustainable Youth Exchange for trainees from Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Norway, France.
Step on board in Antwerp, a famous port city of Belgium, and sail up the coast and across the North Sea to Arendal in Norway, before turning south again towards Kiel. Sail a Tall Ship with international trainees, learning everything from steering to climbing the masts. Take part in a citizen science project, doing microplastic research of the seas. Organise coastal cleanups and leave visited places cleaner than you’ve found them. Join intercultural activities and share your national dishes, music and more, facilitated by the mentors. Enjoy life at sea, away from mobile reception, where you can focus on making new friends, looking for dolphins and observing the stars. For young Windseekers aged 15-25, ages 26-28 at request.
Startharbour: Antwerp (BE)
Endharbour: Kiel (DE)
Prices: from €1000
Note: Additional fees may apply due to the necessity of becoming a member of a partner organisation of your country (up to € 25-50)
*Greenways for traveling to and from ports are reimbursed under Erasmus+ regulations.
No budget? No worries! The Windseeker Dinghy will help you get on board.
Raise money for your journey, supported by an experienced coach. Learn new things about yourself and gain life skills. It is also a great way to connect with other trainees. Let us know at booking if you’d like to take part. It's a good idea. Regardless of financial reasons. Join Dinghy and get going!
We expect a limited number of external bursaries of € 500 to be available for trainees who’d never sailed in the Tall Ships Races before. Windseeker will be happy to help you apply for these funds.
