Adventure in the Mediterranean

Your sailing adventure will start in Ibiza on Sunday afternoon, July 16. This beautiful island in the Mediterranean Sea, known for its beaches surrounded by pine trees and green hills with beautiful rock formations, is part of the Balearic archipelago. The historic center of Eivissa is on the UNESCO World Heritage List and a visit will be more than worthwhile.

The next morning we will leave Ibiza and set sail to Lisbon in Portugal.  

The Strait of Gibraltar

Non-stop sailing for seven days along the east coast of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea, through the famous Strait of Gibraltar and on the Atlantic Ocean. On this voyage you will learn the ins and outs of sailing on a three mast tallship and enjoy the spectacular views from the deck. Experience what it feels like to have the wind through your hair while you climb the mast all the way to the top!

On Sunday, July 23, the sailing adventure will come to an end in Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. Lisbon is known as the city of seven hills. It has a great historical center with characteristic and surprising sights, cultural treasures and a beautiful setting. 

After a week of sailing at the Mediterranean Sea, the Strait of Gibraltar and the Atlantic Ocean, the Clipper will arrive in the port of Lisbon. At 10:00 in the morning we will have to say goodbye. A perfect time to start exploring this beautiful Portuguese city.

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 enjoy 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.

 

An unforgettable experience

The meals are enjoyed along with the crew in the long room 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.

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 long room. We have a well-stocked library on board.

All and all ingredients for an unforgettable experience!
