Thalassa ship's journal
Nowadays Thalassa is back in the Netherlands and all the youngsters are back home after an unforgettable edition of School at sea. After a visit to the shipyard and her annual maintenance she will soon set sail again for Scotland of which Thalassa will sail her famous whisky sailing trips ( fully booked for this spring, for next summer and next year still a limited number of places available: tallshipthalassa.nl/en).
Vive la France!
The ship will subsequently head to France to participate in the world-renowned nautical festival in Rouen, L'Armada du Siècle. After this event, a wonderful robust sailing trip (with last minute offer) is scheduled of which we would like to highlight in this ship's journal:

Sailing along the French and English coasts
Especially for those equipped with seaman's/woman's legs, we have planned an 18-day summer sailing voyage along the French and English coasts. The trip may look like this (wind and weather permitting):
Thalassa will be docked in Le Havre where boarding will take place for the Channel voyage. A crossing to the Solent follows, where the ship will anchor in Osborne Bay facing Queen Victoria's summer palace. Weather permitting, there will be an opportunity to visit Cowes in the evening.
We then continue our journey west through the Solent passing the Needles (beautiful chalk rock formations). Later that day, Thalassa anchors at Swanage, north of Peveril Point.A crossing to the most charming channel island of Alderney is also part of this voyage, arriving there the ship anchors in St Anne harbour. There is time for cycling and walking on the island and, of course, a pub visit. The island has beautiful beaches and an imposing fort called Fort Clonque.
The next day we sail south into the bay of Mont Saint Michel and bend to starboard with destination the reede of St Malo, where we anchor.
We continue our ramble north towards England, arriving in Torbay (where William III landed in 1688 to become subsequent King of Great Britain) on 28 June. We will visit Brixham.
We will also visit Dartmouth (more southerly located) as a stopover before sailing on to Salcombe.
Continuing on to the beautiful bay of Falmouth and thereafter to the Scilly Isles for a visit (if we are allowed ashore given the weather).We will then cross again to the wild coast of Brittany and visit Aber Wrach, Roscoff (ile de Batz) and/or Lezardrieux in the following days.
The end of this wonderful trip will be introduced by sailing before the wind back east (possibly, if there is still time, via Guernsey) The wanderlust will end in Boulogne on 7 July
