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. If the following voyage description is not fulfilled for any reason, Maybe Sailing and Maybe Sailing Youth Initiative cannot be held responsible.

Have you ever dreamed of quitting your day job, buying a yacht and travelling the world’s oceans? While you might not be quite ready to ditch everything for this dream just yet, how about spending a month at sea travelling between Portugal and the Caribbean? On board Blue Clipper we are offering you that exact opportunity. Set sail on this magnificent tall ship, learn how to steer, how to understand the waves and swell and how it’s affected by the weather hundreds of miles away. Ditch your smart phone and all the distractions that come with it and replace it with the open water, it’s weird and wonderful wildlife and an adventure of a lifetime.  Spend Christmas and new year in your new floating home, with new friends, sharing stories, toasting to 2020 anchored off an idyllic Caribbean beach.
