Ascension Island is an official stop for the Bark EUROPA. On the island, you do not have to look far for the beautiful golden beaches. Especially if you come from the sea youcan see Long Beach as your warm greeting. Be warned: the beach and adjacent sea is not suitable for swimming. Dangerously strong undercurrents are only suitable for the sea turtles that come here every year on the beach to lay their eggs. Long Beach is one of the main beaches in the world for the voortplaning of the turtles. Then it is time to weigh anchor and steer the bow towards the open ocean. After a long ocean voyage it will be high time for a festive SailIn in Boston at the east coast of the United States. After six years the EUROPA and her crew are happy to be back againin the US and look forward to meet old friends and take on new trainees.
