Book this adventurous sailing trip

Sailing towards warmer weather

A number of sailing trips are organized by the Clipper Stad Amsterdam every year. Whether you are an experienced sailor or not, we are more than pleased to invite you to join our crew on one of these adventures sailing holidays.

The captain and his crew welcome you in the Portuguese harbor town Porto on Saturday November 25th. This city on the north bank of the river Douro is registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has much to offer. After a good night sleep in one of the 14 luxury cabins on board your sailing voyage along the coast of Portugal and  Northern Africa will begin. Enjoy being on deck hoisting the sails or standing on the lookout and maybe you even like to go aloft in the main mast all the way to the very top. The reward will be a truly unbelievable view!

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

The meals are enjoyed together 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.

Sailing and watches

The ship’s crew stand 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).

We welcome you to join one of these watches. This way you can fully experience how things work on a ship like the Stad Amsterdam. Setting or furling 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, whilst in the Blue Watch you can enjoy the sailing while maintaining a regular day and night rhythm.

destination Gran canaria

Arrival in the harbor of Las Palmas is scheduled for the evening of December 1st. In the past few days you have sailed about 850 nautical miles. It will probably take some getting used to set foot ashore again the next morning. Perhaps you have decided to spend a few extra days in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. For a visit of the Cathedral de Santa Ana or the shops in the Calle Mayor. Or to relax on the golden-yellow beach with the many palm trees.
