About the Ushuaia, Argentina to Cape Town, South Africa Itinerary
This is the ultimate Cape to Cape voyage. The voyage starts in the Argentinian city Ushuaia, and we will sail through the Beagle Channel to open sea. During this ocean voyage to Cape Town we will visit the Antarctic Peninsula, South Georgia and Tristan da Cunha, the most remote island in the world. We will set course across the Atlantic Ocean and sail every day. The Southern Ocean is known for its tumultous character, where names as "Roaring Fourties", "Furious Fifties" and "Screaming Sixties" refer to the challanges in the souther latitudes. Between the different stops there will be sailing for around 10 days, in which there is time to experience the sailing life, including watch keeping, navigating and sail handling.
Welcome Aboard the Bark EUROPA
Since the year 2000, the Bark EUROPA has been crossing oceans and seas on a regular basis and has the reputation of being a ship that really sails. Our voyages bring us to remote islands and cities all over the world, giving you the possibility to step on board halfway through a long ocean crossing. Bark EUROPA follows the favourable winds of traditional sailing routes. This has brought her to all continents, sailing the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Ocean, thus earning her nickname ‘Ocean Wanderer’. From December to March, in the Southern hemisphere summer, the EUROPA conducts expeditions to the Antarctic Peninsula. The EUROPA also participates in the Tall Ships races, the largest international ocean races for sail-training ships in the world. Races occur annually in various parts of the world with thousands of spectators. Our crew and guests are international and of different ages, united in their search for adventure and new experiences.
