Blue Clipper:
St Georges (BM) - Horta (PT)

11 April - 05 May 2020

Atlantic Sailing – Following the Trade Winds. This wonderful spring journey will bring you from sunny Bermuda all the way to Azores, the remote archipelago on the Atlantic Ocean. A famous port of call for ships crossing from Americas to Europe, the Azores are situated off the beaten path. Spend over three weeks on baord, gaining a lot of experience, learning to sail a traditional ship. The ocean crossing is a special voyage, bringing the feelings of positive disconnection from the daily world; a challenge, bucket list experience and a philosophical journey of personal development. It will get you out of your comfort zone and show you how much you’re really capable of. Open to Windseekers of all ages, minimum age 18 years.

Ports

St. George's is the second town and former capital of Bermuda. Founded in 1612, the town still keeps its historic colonial centre (a UNESCO World Heritage site) - stroll around King's square and feel what the Caribbean was like under the British Empire. Choose to tour heritage buildings or the oldest remaining fortifications in the New World, built to protect the city from attacks by pirates and Spaniards.

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.
