Race - 2 berths left | Challenge 72: Aalborg-Fredrikstad

Challenge Wales is a 72-ft ex round-the-world racing yacht and this opportunity combines delivery, cruising and racing in Denmark/Norway as the vessel is taking part in the Tall Ships Races 2019 representing the UK. We have two berths left for those with a variety of sailing experience to help crew the vessel for a voyage from Aalborg -Fredrikstad which is the first leg of a Tall Ships Race, plus take part in the festivities.

Voyage is suitable for those aged 15 - 25 years. Those onboard will get involved in everything to run, sail and race the boat so is a great all-rounded voyage. This will include sailing, sail trimming, navigation, watch-keeping plus cooking. At the end of the voyage is a crew party and parade that you will be part of. All levels of sailing experience are suited for this trip.

You will need to join Challenge Wales in Aalborg on 5th July (at any time but preferably around 4pm) and will finish 13th July in Fredrikstad (Norway) where you can depart the boat in the morning.

We are looking for someone who will get stuck in to the activities onboard and are a team player.

For this voyage a £10 contribution per full day/part day is required to contribute to the costs. Therefore this voyage will cost £90. Included is: All port fees/marina fees, food/refreshments, waterproof jackets and trousers, lifejackets. Access to the Tall Ships event and crew party.

Any meals taken ashore are at the expense of the individual although everything is provided on the boat. There may be an option to stay on for a cruising voyage from Fredrikstad to Bergen subject to berth availability.
