From South Africa to the Caribbean on board the largest operative wooden hulled ship in the world! Embark on Tenacious in Cape Town and, after getting familiar with the Ship, set the sails and catch the trade winds to sail nort-west towards your first stop. Winds permitting, you will visit the remote St Helena and Ascension Island before crossing the Atlantic to the Caribbean. Depending on your arrival time, you might visit one or two different islands before reaching the sunny Antigua. Open to all able-bodied and disabled trainees, minimum age 16 years.
Cape Town, close to Cape of Good Hope, is a wonderful place where African and European cultures mix and match in interesting ways. The city offers lots of entertainment and fine cuisine, and there is much to see! Visit the Table Mountain, saunter along the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, check out Robben Island where Nelson Mandela used to be imprisoned, and of course no Windseeker's visit is complete without a trip to Cape Point. If you have time, a drive along the coast is highly recommended!
Antigua is the main island of a small Caribbean state Antigua and Barbuda. It's local name is Waladli while the Western name has been given to the island by Christopher Columbus in 1493. Antigua is full of beautiful beaches and picturesque sights. You can relax by the clear blue sea, take a trek to a Hell's Gate natural landmark, roam the Nelson's Dockyard or visit one of the historical sites like Fort James, St. John's Cathedral or the Monk's Hill.
