The trip will start with one night in Dunkirk to explore the festival and the city. The next morning we’ll be part of the sailing parade, together with the other ships along the coastline of Dunkirk and into the open sea.

During the trip, we'll enjoy the challenges that are part of our programme to improve our life skills. The challenges of living on board, manoeuvering the ship, facing the weather... and those proposed by the crew to reflect on our strengths and our weaknesses, both as a group and as individuals.

After approximately 11 days at sea, we will arrive in Coruña, the lively port located in Galicia. Here we will join the festivities of the Tall Ship Races and be part of the Crew Parade, the prize-giving ceremony, the Crew Party, and many other activities for-crews-only.

During the days in the port, you and your shipmates will have time to wander around the city and visit the other ships as members of the Atyla-crew. Take some time to visit the grand Plaza Maria Pita, with its characteristic galleries and notorious history, or try some fish from a local store.
