Tall Ships lovers from all over the world sail on the Bark EUROPA. The ship is owned by the shipping company Bark EUROPA and sails all year round with paying trainees around the world. The money that is earned is used for maintenance. The shipping company has no funds to offer young trainees the chance of a life time to join the ship. Therefore the Friends of EUROPA - club is established and you can help!
Help to build a fund so we can welcome underprivalidged youngsters on board on a Tall Ships Race or Ocean Crossing. Being a Friend of EUROPA you not only support young trainees but also the ship in her existence in the coming years. In April 2017 we will have our first two 'Friends of EUROPA' trainees on board, Lotte and Matthijs from The Hague, the Netherlands. They will keep you updated of their adventure via our website and our social media channels.
Captain Klaas Gaastra : "I know for sure that the Friends of the EUROPA-club is something that will be supported by many former guests. This initiative, started by two of our former trainees, is like a crown on all the hard work and effort put in by all crew and office staff to keep the ship sailing over the 7 oceans of the world.
You can become a Friend of the EUROPA with a minimum donation of EUR 25,- on a yearly basis. Being a Friend of the bark EUROPA can be a long term commitment, but it does not have to be. As a Friend of the EUROPA you will be kept up to date about the fund and about the trainees we support and their experiences on board. You can decide every year if you still want to donate to the Friends of the Bark EUROPA.
