An exciting chance to join a 100 year old tall ship and cross part of the Atlantic Ocean on a hands-on sailing adventure
After nearly a year wandering the oceans this voyage is the final part of the ship’s return trip back to Europe and second part of an epic Trans Atlantic voyage. It’s the chance to experience the joy of becoming part of the crew of a tall ship sailing Azores to the Netherlands.
On board, you are the crew. Experience is not needed and sailors new and old are welcomed to the family. Together with the professional crew everyone takes part in a watch system and you’ll be involved in sail handling, helming, look out and much more. Solo travellers are warmly welcomed and there are no single supplements on board.
The professional crew give excellent instruction and guidance as you learn the ropes. They enjoy a few games too so expect to be set some fun nautical quests along the way. If you’re curious about the art of navigation, general ship management and more in depth understanding of ocean sailing they’ll be happy to help you master new skills.
Another World Adventures was founded after an Atlantic Crossing and we know very well the magic and splendour that an ocean crossing can mean for travellers. The waves, the ocean swell and the beautiful skies never gets boring.
You can expect fairly stable weather on this route, but wind wind direction and strength is variable so you’ll be busy on deck managing the sails.
After two weeks listen out for the first ‘Land ahoy!’ as you and your fellow crew sail into the Netherlands.

This fantastic three-masted topsail schooner is the last remaining representative of the large fleet of schooners that sailed under the Dutch flag at the beginning of the 20th century.
We love the brilliant voyages she undertakes that you can join, with no previous sailing experience, as voyage crew. Sailing with a large and genuine sailing ship like this is a very special experience. You join the crew sailing, steering and navigating the ship. Sailing experience is not required for this as the professional crew will explain and teach you everything you need to know.
There is an informal feeling on board and the main point of a voyage is to have a hands-on, active experience and exposure to the sea and sailing as well as the regions you travel between. That said, the ship is furnished comfortably and supplied with all modern conveniences. All the cabins are fitted with a washbasin with hot and cold running water and there are separate sets of showers. In the spacious and stylishly appointed salon there are reading tables, seating areas and a piano.
Life on board is made even better by delicious meals prepared by a professional chef to fuel you up for a day’s sailing.
