An ocean going adventure sailing eastbound across the Atlantic from the Caribbean to the UK via Azores. on board a stunning and luxurious Oyster 62 sailing yacht.
A great chance to join a 62ft luxury adventure sailing yacht as she comes back across the pond in April 2022.
This passage departs from Antigua and includes a brief stop in the Azores. There will be the opportunity to take some time to explore the beautiful and dramatic island of Faial, and for the adventurous, why not climb Pico, the highest mountain in Portugal! We will then set sail again, and would expect it to take around 7 days to Southampton, England.
This trip was originally set to end in Gibraltar but the route is likely being updated to end in the UK – make an enquiry for full details.
This 3,400nm passage should take just under a month, and is suitable for those wishing to qualify for their Ocean Yachtmaster certificate.

Food is taken very seriously and there is no problem with special requests. A typical day starts with a choice of healthy or cooked options – typically porridge, eggs, bacon, toast, cereals and fruit. The lunch menu features fresh salads, wraps and sandwiches or something warming if its cold. Evening meals are delicious and home cooked – using fresh local produce where possible – usually it is a hearty single course with the occasional feature dessert.
In between meals times you won’t go hungry, fruit and snacks are freely available, and if the conditions and the mood are right for some home baking there is hope for a morning pastry with your cofee or a cake with your afternoon tea.
