Medieval sailing: The North Sea crossing.
What if get back to the tall ship era. The age when white yachts were not invented yet, and no one could imagine such thing as an airplane. Also there was not such a thing as tourism. You wouldn't go traveling to the other side of the world just because you want to change the picture in your window.

Our tall ship will set the sails to cross the North Sea, and we will see something that only few could imagine when sea going vessels were like a spaceship now: fantastic, incredible, impossible.
