Cross the Atlantic on clipper Stad Amsterdam! Join a 3-masted Tall Ship for 3 weeks of sailing from sunny Florida to the Azores archipelago. During this non-stop sailing journey you will have the chance to learn about tall ships while crossing the ocean under sails – something not many can claim to have done. This is a digital detox and fun challenge at the same time. Contemplate the vast ocean, sky, dolphins and sea birds around you and get in touch with yourself. Join the next trip: Practical Square Rig Seamanship Sail Training Course from Horta to London for a full Atlantic Crossing and 15% off of the Miami-London trip. Open for all ages, minimum age 15 years.
Miami, U.S.A. The largest city in Florida is one of the trendiest cities in the world. With its high rise buildings, blue ocean, and tropical climate Miami offers the perfect mix of Caribbean temperament and American prosperity. Miami Beach, Bayside Marketplace, the marina, the Freedom Tower, Coconut Grove, Coral Cables and the beautiful nearby "Everglades National Park" are just a few of the highlights that will make a visit to this city more than worthwhile.
Horta is situated in the western part of the Archipelago of the Azores on the island of Faial. The marina is a primary stop for yachts crossing the Atlantic. Its walls and walkways are covered in paintings created by the crews of visiting ships. Peter's Cafe Sport, located across from the marina, houses the island's scrimshaw museum. A collection of artefacts carved from whale tooth and jawbone. This café is a point of reference for trans-Atlantic yachtsmen and sailors.

Annette (18) Denmark
"I have met new people, been up in the mast, seen indescribable sunsets and laughed a lot. Learning how to sail a ship has been the coolest thing I have done so far and I have confidence in what I do now"
