After four weeks on the ocean

After four weeks of quiet and rough seas, the Clipper arrived in France. Time to look back at the last days of the voyage.

Dolphins and whales

 Back in Europe. After almost four weeks at sea we are ready to go into the harbor. The voyage from the Azores had lots of headwind but still many beautiful memories. Wonderful sailing straight after leaving the Azores. Dolphins and whales around the ship in quiet water, which gave us the feeling that the ocean was also just some water.  The crew worked hard on deck to make sure we could sail as much as possible even though
the weather conditions, we used the spacious ocean.

echo of our Cannon

By quiet weather we went to the strait of Gibraltar and finally there was land! Far away we saw beautiful sunsets over the mountains of the Spanish coast. When we arrived in Port Vendres the echo of our cannon echoed through the mountains from the French harbor. Tomorrow we will say goodbye to our guests and make the ship ready for the Mediterranean program.
