The Europa calling at St Helena Island

Damien O'Bey, SHBC

The Europa has been anchored in James Bay since 15 May and left at 2 pm on 17 May for the Azores. 

The ship is a Dutch, registered sail training vessel built in 1911.  Onboard there is a mixture of 27 professional and amateur sailors.  During the summer months the ship makes money providing sail training in the Antarctic Ocean.  

At the end of the season the ship sails nearly the entire length of the Atlantic Ocean to Europe were it takes part in Tall Ship festivals.
