Antarctica season 2016/2017

Are you up for a last minute adventure? Due to a cancellation one bunk (man/male) opened up on the upcoming Antarctica expedition, departing Ushuaia on February 9th 2017 in a shared mens cabin. To get the best out of the group dynamics we are looking for a fit and healthy young man for a bunk in a shared cabin.

What are you signing up for? A true sailing expedition with plenty of sailing days but most important also visits to some true remote and unique areas. The last voyage of Europa’s Antarctic season “The Cape to Cape voyage” is an adventure for all nature and sailing lovers. The places where we land offer a remarkable wildlife with unique species, sometimes in surprising quantities. First we will be heading for the South Shetland Islands, the Antarctic Peninsula and the Weddell Sea with her many icebergs. After our visit to Antarctica we will sail towards the sub-Antarctic island South Georgia with its spectacular scenery and outstanding wildlife. Furthermore we plan to visit the remotest inhabited island of the world: Tristan da Cunha. Here, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, lives a small community on top of an active volcano. Our voyage ends in the South African capital Cape Town.

Do not wait too long with sending in your booking form if you want to make this voyage. Please return a fully completed booking form.

Cannot really put into words the impact of the voyage - it was positive in every aspect. The voyage more then met my expectations. 


Sailing from South Africa to America in 2017

After our maintenance in Cape Town in April 2017 we are planing some serious sailing crossing the Atlantic Ocean all the way to North America. Over two months of oceans for those of you who want to know all the ins and outs of Europa, sail her in all weather conditions, cross the ocean and join in with maintenance. Be a sailor for two months and join us! We will start this journey in South Africa and via a stop in St Helena and Ascension Island we will arrive with a proper SAIL IN into Boston at June 17, 2017, a warm welcome in America!

During this Voyage on the Wonderful 'Europa' I am made to realize the beauty of Mankind's Achievements. Yes, it is not merely a trip to Antarctica, but a true Voyage to the southern parts of the southern hemisphere



After a visit to SAIL Boston we will set sail towards Canada, from Boston we will race against many other international Tall Ships towards Charlottetown in Canada. From Charlottetown we will enjoy the beautiful Canadian Gulf of St Lawrence, we will set sail towards Miramichi and from there we will make a stop in Sagueney before we sail into Quebec. 

Going sailing on board EUROPA was one of the best decisions of my life. The experience of life at sea together with people from all over the world made it a truly unforgettable voyage.  

From North to South America

After all activities in America and Canada and another shipyard period it is time to leave the Northern Hemisphere again. We will set sail from Lunenburg towards Brazil and Uruguay! These ocean voyages are ideal to learn all the tricks in the book about square rig sailing. Plus it is a chance to take some distance from your normal land life and a great opportunity to really get to know your fellow trainees. Who knows? Maybe this voyage will give you a new idea on life!
