Sail Across the Atlantic Ocean – Transatlantic 2017/18

It’s every adventure seeker’s dream to sail across the Atlantic Ocean.Sail Across the Atlantic Ocean TOP26

Whether you’re a beginner or pro sailor there are options for you all on board hands on sailing vessels if you have the ambition to sail across the Atlantic Ocean. Join yachts and tall ships as guest (voyage) crew and learn incredible new skills as you pull together as a team to harness the wind and reach a new continent.

Learn the ropes on a classic tall ship, racing or expedition yacht. Experience navigation, planning and life on board with your fellow crew who will be a mix of ages and from all walks of life. There’s no upper age limit on the voyages and decisions on participants are made on a case-by-case basis by the crew office for each vessel but the key requirement is good health and an enthusiasm to get involved.

Another World Adventures was founded by Tori Howse and Larissa Clark off the back of an epic Atlantic Crossing to Brazil from Europe in 2011 so we know the power of a voyage like this on shaping lives.

Below are some trips where you can sail across the Atlantic Ocean as guest crew. In all cases, except the ARC race, you’ll learn all you need to know on the go. The list is being updated regularly so make sure you’re on our newsletter for updates.

Speak to us about your plans and dreams for this great adventure so we can advise you on the best voyage route and crew to join.
