Destination Oslo

Every year a number of sailing trips are organized by the Clipper Stad Amsterdam. Whether you are an experienced sailor or not, we are more than pleased to invite you to join our crew on one of these adventurous sailing holidays.
In August 2020 the Clipper will start on a voyage around the world in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: The SDG World Tour.

On this unique 7-day sailing trip you will be able to enjoy the beauty of a square-rigged tall ship and at the same time visit two impressive European cities: London and Oslo.
On Sunday, May 17, you will embark the Clipper Stad Amsterdam in the heart of London. This bustling city offers many fantastic opportunities. On board you have a magnificent view of London's skyline, with the famous Tower Bridge at short distance. In addition to the well-known bridge, the financial district, the Tower, the Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and The London Eye can be admired from the deck as well. After a delicious dinner, you will spend your first night in one of our 14 comfortable cabins.

Via the Thames to Scandinavia

The next morning all preparations for departure to Oslo will be made. In no time you will leave beautiful London behind and sail on the River Thames towards the North Sea.
Here the actual sailing will begin! Enjoy helping with hoisting the sails, stand on the lookout or steer as helmsman. Maybe you even dare to climb into the highest mast.
In the meantime, you are passing the beautiful Dutch and German islands located at some distance from the ship. After sailing along the west coast of Denmark the clipper will arrive at Skagerrak which is a strait running between the southeast coast of Norway, the west coast of Sweden, and the Jutland peninsula of Denmark. The ship will be sailing through the stunning Oslofjord next before reaching Oslo.

An unforgettable experience

Imagine standing on the lookout surrounded by nothing but the sea. The waves, being rough every now and then, maybe some other ships and sometimes even dolphins playfully dancing just ahead of the bow. On the other hand, one could also relax reading a book in the longroom. We have a well-stocked library on board.

The meals are enjoyed along with the crew in the longroom at times adjusted to the watches. Every night the captain will give a short briefing of the mileage achieved on the day before, the mileage still to go and any other points of interest.

All and all ingredients for an unforgettable experience!

Sailing and watches

The ship’s crew stands watch in three shifts. These shifts are called the Red Watch (from 12- 4 AM and PM), the White Watch (from 4-8 AM and PM) and the Blue Watch (from 8-12 AM and PM).

If you like, you can join one of these watches. This way you can fully experience the works on a ship like Stad Amsterdam. Setting the sails, keeping lookout, setting the course or standing watch: you can participate in all of it.

As a member of the Red Watch, you can admire the peacefulness of being at sea and the endless starry sky. In the White Watch you will experience the break of dawn like you never did before while in the Blue Watch you can enjoy the sailing while maintaining a regular day and night rhythm.

Oslo & Oslofjord

After almost a week at sea, we reach our final destination on Saturday, May 23, in the late afternoon. Oslo is situated in the southeast part of Norway at the head of the Oslo Fjord, a deep inlet of the Skagerrak with a length of 107 kilometres. It is a breathtaking sailing area with cute little islands, inlets and nice bays flanked by forested hills with lively villages. 
The next morning your sailing adventure will come to an end. No doubt the fantastic experience will have you enriched!
Oslo is a great city for a city trip. In addition to over 50 museums, the Norwegian capital has many historic sights such as the Oslo Cathedral with its beautiful stained glass windows, the "The Stortinget" building where the Oslo Parliament assembles, the strategically located "Akershus" where two war-related museums can be visited and the Royal Palace with parts that are occasionally open to the public. In addition, shopping is a fun activity in Oslo and there are a large number of good restaurants and trendy terraces. Enough to explore!
