Atlantic Crossing - Follow The Trade Winds

Voyage Description

On a sailing voyage we never use the word itinerary, as skippers will always be aiming for the best sailing and shore landings for the forecast and most idyllic or sheltered anchors and ports. They are as keen as you to include some of the highlights describe, but you have to go with Mother Nature, not fight her. The description below is based on what we think might be possible, based on past trips, or experience, but nothing is guaranteed on a sailing voyage.

Crossing an ocean under sail is sure to be a dream for many.  It is a voyage of discovery.   Not only will you discover everything you need to know about sailing a traditional schooner….you will discover a great deal about yourself.

The rhythm of the ocean will determine life on board.  You establish a routine that is relaxing and comfortable but keeps you occupied.  Sailing at night with absolutely no light pollution makes the night sky brilliant.  Experience all the seas moods from glassy clams to white capped swells launching flying fish from crest to crest.

This ocean passage is ideal for the ambitious sailor, world traveller or determined romantic.  Some people love the physical challenge of being hands on crew, others muck in but their real passion might be ocean bird spotting or just finding time for themselves.

This voyage will end in the Azores.  For in-the-know travellers, the Azores have long represented a beckoning blip on the radar of possible destinations. The exposed tips of vast underwater mountains, the Azores lie on the nexus of the European, American and African tectonic plates, and they bear witness to the forces forever shaping our planet. This is a world of fumaroles, mudpots and scalding springs; of caverns, columns and grottoes formed from once molten rock; of blue lakes ringed by forests of laurel and cedar, and green pastures patterning the slopes of calderas.

There is an option to combine this voyage with the following voyage form the Azores – Liverpool for a discounted price.
