The barque ‘Europe’ is one of the Tall Ships who participated in the Saling Parade into Harlingen which launches the Tall Ships Races 2014. This great event started with a grand port event in Harlingen from 3-6 July with activities for young and old. This will be the first Tall Ships event in Harlingen and the most impressive event of the year in the northern region of The Netherlands. The Parade of Sail into the harbour was very spectacular. Especially the arrival of the barque ‘Europe’, in full sail, drew large crowds as she enjoyed a rousing homecoming as she returned from her recent world tour.
