    Default The voyage, 10000NM on the barque Europa

    During the hight of the 2020 COVID pandemic the crew of the barque Europa decided to sail her non stop from Ushuaia Argentina to her homeport of Scheveningen in the Netherlands. A 10000 NM journey. This clip gives a nice impression of the daily life on board of the large sailing vessel during this voyage.

    Bump!!!
    Sitting here in the bush with a warm breeze and a beer after 5 hours mowing grass I really enjoyed that. Tonight I'll play it again on our big screen. Serendippity can provide wonderful opportunities, and that was one.
    I was minded of the anology between a sailng ship and an interplanetary vehicle, especially 150years ago. Beautiful ship and a great crew.
    Thank you very much dutchpp
