Scheveningen - Sevilla - Tenerife - Sal - Montevideo 2019

Welcome in the community for Scheveningen - Sevilla - Tenerife - Sal - Montevideo 2019

Welcome on board Bark EUROPA! 

Within four legs, from Scheveningen to Seville, Tenerife and Cabo Verde, EUROPA will sail the Atlantic Ocean towards Montevideo, Uruguay. This voyage is a unique opportunity to truly experience life at sea. The crew will involve all trainees as much as possible in running and sailing the ship. When sailing you take part in a watch system. You can steer, navigate, be lookout, climb the masts, set sail, brace, do rope and canvas work and on long voyages bake bread and assist with the maintenance of this beautiful ship.

In this community, you can get in touch with fellow trainees before the start of the voyage, as well as share tips on what to pack, how to best get around on the different stop overs and much more.

Hello my name is David or Dave and am from Minnesota USA. I sailed on a smaller version of the tall sailing ships on our Great Lakes in the USA /Canada in 2017. While in Quebec City , Quebec Canada I met some of the crew abroad the Europa and immediately inquired about the opportunity to do an ocean going sailing adventure. Other than that I have no real sailing experiences and very much look forward to this new adventure . I am very excited to meet everyone in this very international crew.

Hi, a question to the expierenced ones on board, what kind of shoes make sense, rubber boots, or leather shoes ? How cold it gets after we've crossed the tropics ?

Ahmad · 4 months

Hello everyone! I am Ahmad and I am thrilled for this experience. I love to travel to learn and explore new destination but sailing a tall ship has always been a dream that I think this experience might top all of my other experiences. Cannot wait to visit Sevilla and Tenerife. But most importantly I cannot wait to sail from one to the other.
