Europa at Opua, Bay of Islands, New Zealand........! by 


The Dutch barque ’ Europa ’ pictured after a seven Tall Ships race from Sydney, Australia to Opua in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand. They are now in Auckland for Labour Weekend. The ’ Europa ’ with another Tall Ship will be leaving Auckland shortly for Europe via Cape Horn. Now that will be the trip of a lifetime !
The ’ Europa ’ does take paying guests so get your names in quick……!
The ’ Europa ’ was built in 1911 in Hamburg, Germany and was first used as a light ship on the river Elbe. She was fully re-rigged and rebuilt in 1994 in Amsterdam, Holland.
