Charity event in Harlingen

On Sunday evening August 5th, we welcome you from 19.30 for a party on board. The shipping company thinks that the creation of the Friends of EUROPA foundation is a fantastic initiative and has therefore decided to organize a party together with the foundation and to make her deck the party venue. There will be plenty of time to catch up with old friends, while enjoying the most delicious food, drinks and music. The catering and the music are arranged by the shipping company but the rest of the income goes straight to the foundation!

Captain Klaas will tell us more about the imporance of the support of the Friends of EUROPA, our dream to add a new skylight and the board of the foundation will introduce themselves. Furthermore the sponsored youngsters from The Hague will tell us everything about their recent adventures on board. We hope it was a lifechanging adventure for them. You can also enjoy the summer grooves of the Dutch Brazilian band Fusca. They perfectly represent our sailing voyages to faraway places!

We hope to welcome many new friends this evening who can help us to realize the dreams for a new skylight and to get more youngsters involved in sail training.

Fusca

Fusca is a new Dutch Brazilian pop band that creates a summery atmosphere with Brazilian music. With stirring solos and influences from Brazilian icons such as Elis Regina and Gilberto Gil, you quickly find yourself in South American atmospheres.

Friends of EUROPA

Over the years, Bark EUROPA has made many friends, with whom we keep in touch through social media or encounter while sailing to many ports. Your support is very appreciated whether it is through sponsoring youngsters, simply sharing experiences about Bark EUROPA or helping the ship to fund her maintenance.

A new skylight

Being a Friend of EUROPA, you not only support young trainees but also the ship in her existence in the coming years.

Captain Klaas Gaastra: “Every year, crew are working on adding new traditional jewellery to EUROPA in addition to the maintenance work. These can be small or larger attributes and one of the larger eye catchers that we would like to donate to our beautiful lady is a classic authentic skylight on the poop deck.”
