An authentic sailing experience
Crossing the Atlantic on a traditional tall ship is an experience that leaves a lasting impression. For 16 days your exact course is determined only by the elements. When the crew sets the sails at dizzying heights, the wind fills the canvas and the ropes stretch and creak, you will experience a tangible sense of freedom.
Following in Columbus’ footsteps
What would have been going through Columbus’ mind as he set sail in 1492? It is virtually impossible to sail across the Atlantic in the discoverer’s footsteps without constantly considering his thoughts and ideas. Columbus had not yet discovered the trade winds, which provide ideal sailing conditions in the westerly direction during the winter months, but nowadays we know that they guarantee fantastic sailing for the Sea Cloud on its way to the Caribbean.
Relax and enjoy
Great adventures do not always mean great effort. For 17 days we sail a westward course across the Atlantic, always heading towards a magnificent sunset. It will not be long before you sit back and relax; surrounded by vast horizons and looked after by an attentive crew, you will leave your every-day stress behind in no time at all.
A lecturer accompanies the trip
