Clipper Stad Amsterdam

Sailing from Miami to Horta

Across the Atlantic Ocean in 21 days (part 1)

Limited availability

Adventurous sailing to the Azores

Late in the afternoon on Saturday April 29 you will embark the Clipper Stad Amsterdam in Miami.

This large American city in the southeastern state Florida is one of the most trendy cities in the world where many tourists enjoy the ideal combination of Caribbean liveliness and American prosperity every year. Miami, Bayside Marketplace and marina, the Freedom Tower, Coconut Grove, Coral Cables, and of course the beautiful nearby Everglades National Park are just a few of the highlights that make a visit to this city more than worthwhile.

The next morning the long non-stop crossing to Horta will begin.

The true sailing enthusiast will for sure get what he or she is looking for. The dolphins tumbling near the ship’s bow, astonishing clouds, colorful rainbows, most amazing sunrises and the sunsets but also the peacefullness and freedom of the open sea will make you relive the old days. An unique chance to admire the Clipper in all her glory.

On May 19th we expect to arrive at Horta. This city is situated in the western part of the Archipelago of the Azores on the island of Faial. Here you may choose to fly home from Horta Airport or you may decide to join us in sailing to Port-Vendrès in the south of France. This will take another 2 weeks. For more than a month on board of the Clipper Stad Amsterdam while crossing the Atlantic Ocean will be a most unique and 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 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!
