August 21 – 26

Cherbourg has a deep natural harbour backed by steep wooded hillsides. Centuries ago, it was an obvious place for a fortified port. Cherbourg is one of France’s important Channel ports and it is one of the best-connected ferry ports in France. Cherbourg has a history of seafarers and adventure and now it is our turn to go into the Channel and sail to A Coruña. We have to pass the “infamous” Bay of Biscay. It should be quite calm this time of year. In A Coruña we will meet the Tall Ship Fleet. A Coruña, has previously been awarded the best Tall Ship festival. We look forward to stay here during the festival. You can buy one night extra and stay on board as well.
