Palmeira (CV) - Paramaribo (SR)

17 December 2022 - 03 January 2023

Alternative holidays. Cross the Altlantic from Cape Verde to South America for Christmas and New Year! Crossing the ocean on a 60 meter long sailing ship is a real once in a lifetime experience and a bucket list experience for many. Tired of all the obligations around the holidays? Or just don’t feel like being alone? Then choose a trip with the Eendracht. Clear skies with thousands of stars make the sea sparkle. Sail away from daily life, cellphones and internet, and enjoy the tranquility for 2000 nautical miles. Spot passing dolphins, admire the sunsets, and meet new people. Become an experienced sailor and enjoy this unique journey! Open to Windseekers aged 15-80.

Ports

Palmeira is the third-largest town in Cape Verde, situated on the island of Sal, yet still has a small, village atmosphere. When you land in Palmeira you will have just completed an Atlantic Crossing, or at least a hefty 2700km sail south from Europe. Whilst resting in Palmeira, visit some bars and restaurants, or explore further to desert Oases, caves and beaches.

Paramaribo is the capital city of Suriname, at the northern coast of South America. Visit the busy Central Market for a local atmosphere and Saint Peter & Paul Cathedral-Basilica, Neveh Shalom Synagogue or the Suriname Mosque for must-see architectural attractions. Then stroll down the Blaugrond street and grab some delicious food in one of the many lively restaurants.

STO Garant

This Journey is covered by the STO Garant guarantee. You can find the conditions for this guarantee scheme on STO Garant’s website (www.sto-garant.nl/en/downloads).

This process is automatic and you do not need to do anything else. After receiving your booking, Windseeker will send you detailed information on how and when to pay for your journey – together with all the other important details.

 

What does it mean?

In short: you do not pay the booking amount to Windseeker but instead into an escrow account. This trust account holds your payment in reserve until your journey’s end. The booking amount is then released to Windseeker on the day after your trip ends. If Windseeker or the Ship should become financially insolvent before the end of your trip, STO Garant will implement the guarantee. The Guarantee Scheme details how you can make a claim under the guarantee in such cases. You can read more about this here.
