A group of Dutch youngsters who sailed from Hartlepool to IJmuiden on Wylde Swan
have been keeping a video diary specially for the Dutch V channel RTV Noord-Holland.
The youngsters, Jeffrey, Jan-Willem, Lukas, tom, Sophie, Wesley, Gregory and Esmee (pictured above) made a film about their adventures on board Wylde Swan
and have loaded it onto Youtube and can be viewed here
Willem and Lukas are also going to be interviewed on the TV tomorrow evening 18 August during a half hour programme about the race.
The young trainees thoroughly enjoyed their time on board Wylde Swan during the race even, helping the crew change sails and steering around the various waypoints. They arrived in IJmuiden yesterday and will be taking part in the Sail in down to Amsterdam on Thursday.
The final results are now being calculated and are due to be published later today or tomorrow once all the race declaration forms have been handed in to the race office.
The North Sea Tall Ships Regatta is organised by Sail Training International.
