A real trip on the North Sea

During the summer we will participate in the Tall Ships Races 2022 (website). They start in Esbjerg, Denmark.

Would you like to do a real sea trial? Then this is an ideal opportunity!

Get away from everything that keeps you busy ashore. A few days out of reach. Just the crew, the boat and the sea...

400 miles non-stop from Oostende to Esbjerg (Denmark) gives you the chance to experience life at sea.

As soon as we arrive in Esbjerg, the other impressive square-rigged ships arrive as well. Training ships of international stature and participants from all over Europe will make this a festive event of which we with Saeftinghe will be a part. 

If you are interested in sailing one of the other stages of the Tall Ships Races after this approach, please send us a message and we will look at the possibilities.

Give young people a chance!

The Tall Ships Races are for young people between 15 and 25 years old. Arruno Exploration also wants to give these youngsters the opportunity to participate in an event like the Tall Ships Races and the trip to the port of departure. 

To make this feasible for everyone, we have created a special rate and young people between 15 and 25 years old can participate at our youth rate in full board (110€/day). 

If you plan to sail several stages outside the run-up, please send us a message, and we will certainly look into the possibilities.

“2022 will see the Tall Ships Races return to the North Sea for the first time since 2018. It is always a pleasure to return and experience the challenging conditions that the North Sea offers as well as the culture and enthusiasm of the ports who host us.

“The race route takes us on a technically challenging course from the wind farm capital of Denmark, Esbjerg, via a couple of waypoints to Harlingen where the vessels will sit intimately within the town itself due to the myriad waterways that run through it.

“The coastline between Harlingen and Antwerp offers an ideal environment for vessels to explore on their way south to the Belgian metropolis.

“For the final leg, the vessels will have a liberating run across towards the English coast and then up the North Sea to the Skagerrak, a real head to head race course which should provide some exhilarating sailing.”

Sail Training International Race Director, Ben Stuart
