Atyla’s dedicated crew are welcoming, friendly and informal, and they invite you to join them aboard their incredible ship. You get to build your leadership/ teamwork skills in an exciting and fun way- they get to meet all sorts of people from all over the world – it’s an excellent trade-off!
The 2018 races are separated into three parts. The first part - Race 1 - starts off in Sunderland (UK) with the fleet racing east for four days to Esbjerg in Denmark. The second part - the cruise in company – will see the fleet cruising north for five days to Stavanger in Norway. The third and final part - Race 2 - will see the fleet racing south for five days to Harlingen in The Netherlands.
Most of these voyages are only a few days long; perfect to fit in around any work or study commitments! In fact, the entire race series is less than a month long- why not treat yourself and properly get away from it all?
As always, you don’t need any previous experience to sail and can be of any age or gender. Are you ready to be modern day Viking? Then take up the challenge and book now!
Interested in Race 1?
The voyage will start in Sunderland, and you’ll get to spend a night meeting everyone aboard ship as it stays moored in the South Dock or along the Wear, right at the heart of Sunderland’s festivities! The next day you’ll literally learn the ropes before setting sail down the Wear and out into the North Sea in a magnificent parade of sail.
This voyage involves sailing far from the sight of land, across busy shipping channels. Prepare for an epic adventure navigating around other vessels and darting in front of your sailing competitors! Prepare for changing weather and winds as your experience grows, and together you steer Atyla eastwards into the rising sun. Always striving to be the fastest and best handled ship you’ll soon see the rolling hills and golden sands of the German and Danish coast, using the tides to your advantage to gain momentum! Before long you’ll be through the finish line at Esbjerg, and cruising into the Danish harbour. If you enjoy using the winds and waves to your advantage and sailing in all conditions this would be perfect for you!
Atyla and her crew will arrive in Esbjerg while the festival is in full swing. During Tall Ships races, lots of the public want to come aboard Atyla to look around. You’ll be assigned a ‘port watch’, a time where you’ll need to stay aboard to act as tour guide for people who want to visit the ship. It’s great fun and a brilliant way to inspire more people to enjoy the amazing sail training experience.
You’ll also be invited to join in with Esbjerg’s crew parade along with the rest of the crew. This is a brilliant thing to do, and we highly recommend you take up the offer. Wear your trainee t-shirt with pride and wave at the crowds lining the streets!
After the crew parade and port watches, it’s about time for some rest and relaxation! Trainees travelling aboard the Atyla are invited to optional crew only activities, which include a private party organised by the event planners, guided tours of the town and sports! Best of all you’ll get to meet all the other trainees from all the other ships, so you can share your stories and socialise with people from all over the world.
The rest of your time is your own, so you can enjoy all the festivities in the city. There will be lots of special maritime themed stalls and shows to see, as well as the regular attractions of the city – so embrace adventure and explore this Danish delight while you are in port!
This voyage is a well-balanced package, with a little of everything sail training has to offer! You would be taken on for 8 days, enjoying unique experiences, building your leadership, teamwork and communication skills, all while meeting people from all over the world, exploring Denmark and having fun!
