Sail with us
Since 1994 the barque EUROPA has roamed the seas of the world and built up the reputation of a ship that really sails. A professional crew of 14 and a complement of 48 voyage crewmembers of all ages and nationalities sail her. Tall Ships enthusiasts, some with no sailing experience, take the wheel, hoist the yards, navigate, etc. We, the crew, invite you to sail with us. Each year there are different voyages on the schedule: Antarctica expeditions, Tall Ship Adventures, Tall Ships’ races and long ocean crossings - an experience that many dream of and none will forget.

What to expect during your holiday on board EUROPA
Today we went on shore to do some shopping and, suprisingly, we ended up in a Irish pub. We sat for a while, having some drinks, and than Simon asked: "What have we learned?"
Immediately, before any other had the chance to reply, Line answere: "Balance!".
Everybody remained in silence for a while, because we realized that she couldn't have been more right. All of us need balance in their lives and, with the waves as high as 4 meters, this ship has been the perfect way to learn it. And the trip we took, our voyage over the ocean, albeit just a tiny part of it, in many ways represents the voyage we take in life to find balance.
To many of us this journey has been a treasure hunt. And I don't mean the piece of chemical waste we retrieved from the ocean. Some of us found our treasures on this ship, in the form of friendship, love, or piece of mind. For others the hunt continues.
But as a reminder to the crew that this trip was more than just a sailing excursion, we have decided to share in the treasure and give it to the crew as a reminder and a token of gratitude. Thank you!
