Clipper Stad Amsterdam

Adventurous sailing

May - July 2020

On the last day of SAIL Amsterdam 2020 the Clipper leaves her homeport Amsterdam for two years. This is the day we start our trip around the world as ambassador for the SDG World Tour. In preparation of the world tour there will be a 6 months maintenance period at the historic harbour in Den Helder from the 1st of November 2019 until the 31st of April 2020.

In the spring and summer 2020 the Clipper will offer adventurous sailing trips in Northern Europe. 

These trips will be published here very soon.

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!
