Adventure sailing from Cape Town to the Azores on a family run traditional tall ship is true ocean expedition. Cross the equator, visit St Helena and Ascension Island and finish on the beautiful island group of the Azores.
There is nothing quite like arriving at a new destination, ship under sail with no engines, and just the splashing of water and the wind in your hair.
Adventure sailing from Cape Town to the Azores
You’ll join a four-person professional crew and set sail with up to 12 others to see more of the world. No sailing experience is needed and while on the open ocean, your crew will teach you about sailing a traditional sailing vessel. You will work as a team to cover watches, learn steering, and how to manage sails. The traditional S turn will be used so that the ship is always sailing with the wind from the South Atlantic maximising the time under sail.
It isn’t always work, there is time to relax and enjoy just watching the ever-changing sky and sea. The crew has also been known to take a dip in the ocean to keep cool while sailing. You’ll come to love life a sea, the work and the relaxation.
The final destination is the island of Faial. This is the place you want to be if you’re a sailor who has just crossed the ocean. There is a local pub where most of the sailors gather on their way in or out. It’s a true cultural experience and you’ll enjoy swapping stories over a pint.
