Las Palmas

From Ibiza to Brest

July 19 - 31, 2022

On Tuesday July 19th this sailing adventure starts from Ibiza, along the Spanish coast, through the Strait of Gibraltar, then across the Atlantic Ocean to the north until finally arriving at the western tip of Brittany, in France.

We will be sailing about 1350 nautical miles in 12 days, which provides plenty of time to familiarize you with all the aspects of sailing a square-rigged ship. You are more than welcome to join this adventure!

Join our crew

The crew works in three shift watches. There’s a red watch (midday to four PM and midnight to four AM), a white watch (four to eight PM and AM) and a blue watch (eight PM to midnight and eight AM to midday). You can indicate your preference for a particular watch.

Under the supervision of the helmsman, you will join the quartermaster and a party of two (or more) crew.

Our crew will be happy to teach you the basics of sailing on a squarerigged three-master and explain the various sailing manoeuvres and the names of the sails and rigging.


Meals and accomodation

Meals are taken together with the crew in the clipper’s longroom and the captain offers regular updates on the ship’s progress, informing you of how many sea miles are left to sail and other nautical points of interest.

There are 14 cabins available for 1, 2 or 3 passengers.

Travel stories

The endless space at sea, the rhythm of red, white and blue watch duty, the dolphins swimming along the side, sometimes even whales to see ... it will make you forget everyday life. Two guests joining on an adventurous crossing earlier like to share their experience with you!
