What to expect

All aboard SV Tenacious, for a refreshing sailing experience across the swells of the English Channel to the river Seine in time for one of the largest maritime festivals in the world; the Armada Rouen. Over 10 million visitors are expected!

The unpredictable winds across the English Channel can be exhilarating, giving you the opportunity to challenge your abilities with setting sails, climbing the mast, navigating and helming the ship, whilst learning about the marine environment and our responsibilities to protect it.

We always see our crews form strong friendships, and we’re sure this voyage will be no different. With Rouen being around 75 miles up the River Seine, you’ll arrive in Rouen on the 5th or 6th (depending on pilotage), Tenacious will take her place amongst many other tall ships from all over the world and you’ll have the chance to explore this five yearly famous maritime festival.

If you enjoy the festival, then why not visit the city and then hop back on for the next trip to Scheveningen!
