Sail Atyla between the two biggest maritime festivals of the year in France, from "Semaine du Golfe du Morbihan” to “L’Armada Rouen”. You will be surrounded by hundreds of ships, and have the chance to visit several of the biggest tall ships in the world with a special pass as “crew of Atyla”.
The voyage will start in the Gulf of Morbihan, right at the end of the first festival. You’ll embark in the morning, and after the first explanations and introductions, we’ll leave in the afternoon. We’ll get to sail along with other ships that will be leaving at the same time.
Then we’ll set course north, and will sail along the beautiful French coast for almost 4 full days, using the experiences on board to learn about ourselves and the others on board, improving our life skills and our sailing skills.
Then we will reach the Seine, the river that flows through Paris, sailing upstream contemplating the beautiful river banks along the way. With luck, we’ll sail the river together with other huge tall ships from around the world, arriving at the same time.
We'll reach Rouen latest on the 6th of June. That evening we’ll celebrate the arrival with a dinner at a local restaurant.
The day after we’ll have time to welcome the first visitors to the ship, and also to visit some of the other ships in the festival ourselves. As the crew of Atyla, we’ll get to visit as colleagues and friends, and hopefully they'll give us a tour around their ship. Disembarkation is on the morning of the following day.
You can also stay on board Atyla for the duration of the festival, and have time to explore the region while you have your home in one of the ships in the middle of the event. As a participant/passenger on this trip, you have a discounted price. (Call for details).
