Year of journey:

“The Sailing Summer School was defnitely one of the most extraordinary programs I have ever been able to partcipatein. Both, the daily sailing adventures as well as the excitng and challeng – ing discussions about the future of Europequickly made us feel home on the Marleen. Apply, if you would love to experience long days full of thought provocatveideas, fresh fruit on board with the best sailing crew out there, a stunning setng for philosophical thoughts and newfriendships with impressive people. Afer those days I really felt that we could change and improve Europe to- gether!”
