Join the tall ship Blue Clipper in Horta on May 7th 2020 for an unforgettable 11 day adventure that will see you travel from the Azores to Portugal. You'll be getting hands on with setting the sails, steering the ship, keeping watch and more throughout the voyage and the best part is that no experience is required in order to join - you'll be taught everything you need to know before you need to know it at every stage throughout the journey.

Crossing an ocean under traditional sail is far from easy. Ocean passages can bring conditions fit for only the boldest adventurers seeking the ultimate challenge.

Join Blue Clipper in the Azores, for ocean sailing to Portimao, Portugal. This is an ocean adventure of epic proportions, sailing across the Atlantic, to the Algarve region on Portugal’s South coast. Learn about Celestial navigation, gain skills in seamanship and learn to live on the ocean, at one with nature.

Those looking to become voyage crew on an ocean voyage, sailing across the Atlantic from the Azores to Portugal, ending the voyage in the busy town of Portimao.

This epic crossing will be a challenge for all, as you sail across the Atlantic.

Learn all about sailing a tall ship, work in a watch system, help to navigate the ocean, climb the rigging, mend a sail and get into the rhythm of ocean sailing. A great voyage for the career sailor too with plenty of miles, warm weather and seamanship skills to be learnt on deck and aloft.

Sail the Atlantic from Ponta Delgado in the Azores to Portimao, Portugal on this mini ocean adventure on this beautiful three masted expedition tall ship.

You really don’t need any sailing experience as the professional and experienced crew will run through everything from safety drills to how to pull ropes efficiently, find the right halliard or steer the 144ft schooner. You don’t even have to be super strong just bags of enthusiasm to sail a traditional commercially coded ocean voyager.

Your journey aboard this beautiful Schooner will end in Portimao where you'll disembark on May 18th.
