Tall Ship Europa, Sails into Lunenburg

13 09 2010

Today’s excitement was watching the arrival of the Europa into the Bay at Lunenburg.  We had seen this ship at Halifax last year in the Tall Ships Festival. She looked wonderful sailing in under full sail.

She was flying the flags of the Netherlands and the European Communities.

The figurehead is the Goddess Europa with Zeus the bull.

The ship’s dog seemed happy to have arrived at port.

The ship edged slowly into a berth beside the Fisheries Museum.

And was secured.



After Lunenburg, the Europa heads to Brazil, before sailing on to Antarctica.

This web site tell you all about the Europa and her expeditions.


Her trips to Antarctica look amazing. Here is just one of the photos from the site.

Anyone who fancies a trip of a lifetime should check out the schedules.

I love all of these photos. This ship was not seen in Turku last year. Especially I love that figurehead. Thank You showing these photos.
