Cape Town - St. Helena - Ascension Island - Azores 2018 on the Bark Europa

A review by Jess

September 26, 2018

I was lucky enough to sail on board the EUROPA for 56 days between Cape Town and Horta this year via the island paradises of St Helena and Ascension, and it was absolutely incredible in every single way; words cannot do justice to just how amazing that voyage was. From the fabulous crew, the immaculate ship and the fantastic Trade Wind sailing, to the food, lectures and games/challenges the crew organised for us - it was all extremely carefully thought-through and as a result, magnificent.

As voyage crew you can get involved in being as much of a salty sailor as you wish with the help of the permanent crew, who are always eager to teach and keen for you to learn & take part; as the saying goes: the more you put in, the more you get out!

I VERY HIGHLY recommend sailing on EUROPA to anyone looking to truly experience what life at sea on a traditional and stunningly beautiful tall ship, is all about.

Fair winds and a following sea to ye!
