New Years Voyage. What better way to enter the New Year than by sailing across the ocean? This epic trip of exactly one month will take you from one tropical paradise to another. You will board the Lord Nelson in the Canary Islands and celebrate New Years in style in Tenerife, before sailing across the Atlantic to the Caribbean. If the trade winds don’t disappoint then you might stop by in Cape Verde along the way. You will also have a unique opportunity to see the lunar eclipse from the middle of the ocean. This is a truly unique voyage for anyone with a passion for adventure! Open for able-bodied and disabled trainees. Minimum age 16 years.

Ports

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is a cosmopolitan town, the shared capital (with Santa Cruz) of the Canary Islands. Situated on the ‘wet’ north side, the city feels more authentic than the touristy places on the ‘dry’ south side. Las Palmas offers beaches, cheap shopping, culture and excitement with a night life, primarily in the district of Vegueta. Its culture is decidedly Spanish, mixed with influences from all over the world, as Las Palmas’ port has been in operation for centuries.

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.
