Biskaje – Atlantic Island trip

October 13 - November 20, 2018

€5150

Let your family and friends wave you goodbye and sail by the subtropical flower island of Madeira to Tenerife, off the west coast of Africa.

On the Bay of Biscay, enter the sea rythm and see the world around you change. It will slowly get warmer and after a week, shorts can go on. In the meantime, you make friends for life and learn to know your place on board through the changing circumstances. The weather determines the route. We await favorable winds for the crossing of the Bay of Biscay. For sailors, this special part of the Atlantic is renowned for the high seas. But it’s also a well-known site for spotting whales and dolphins. You also visit beautiful places in Northern Spain and Portugal. Excursions are organized here, for example to Santiago de Compostela and Lisbon. This trip is dedicated to different cultures, tough sailing and beauriful hikes.

About Masterskip

In a six weeks sailing trip, from the port of Rotterdam to Tenerife, from Tenerife to the Caribbean and back to Rotterdam via the Azores, Dutch secondary school students can join for six weeks to become a crew member and follow education on board of the ship. The trainees have a great time and learn a lot about science, life at sea and the subjects related to the journey. On board we provide excellent teachers to take care of the education and staff with expertise to make sure the learners get to know everything there is about sailing, life at sea and the ship. The students focus on science and they directly learn how this theoretical knowledge can be applied on a ship and its environments. For example, we teach them about navigation, forces causing the sailing, how to make fresh water from sea water, how to dissect a freshly caught tuna or about the volcanic history of the Caribbean. Furthermore the students learn how to cooperate and work in a challenging and active environment, and experience to maintain a positive and creative atmosphere on board. TO MASTERSKIP WEBSITE

Harlingen

Harlingen is a trade and fishing port in Friesland, the Netherlands. The town itself is over a thousand years old, and you’ll find several historic streets in the old city centre. Its small size makes it easy to explore the town on foot. The town operates ferry lines to the Frisian Islands, a unique nature reserve with populations of seals, birds, and other wildlife. With its ‘gezellige’ pubs the town is a great place for a stopover.
