Atlantic Ocean crossing

Boston - Ponta Delgada
May 9 - 24, 2023

Our crew will welcome you in Boston for the Atlantic Ocean crossing to Ponta Delgada on the island of São Miguel - the Azores. This sailing voyage promises to be unforgettable with dolphins tumbling near the ship’s bow, astonishing clouds, colourful rainbows and amazing sunrises and sunsets. The feeling of tranquil and freedom which the open sea provides, will make you feel small and special at the same time. A unique chance to admire the Clipper in all her glory.

From Ponta Delgada the Clipper will continue her voyage to the European mainland and will sail to the east coast of Spain. Departure date of this trip is scheduled for May 25 and the date of arrival will be around June 7, 2023. This trip will soon be online!

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!
