Stad Amsterdam:
Casablanca - Fort-de-France

28 November - 23 December 2015

Atlantic crossing in 24 days – On Saturday November 28th we will welcome you on board of the Clipper Stad Amsterdam in Casablanca, Morocco. This city located on the Atlantic Ocean was built by the French in the 1920’s and modelled after the French port city Marseille. Casablanca (“white house”) owes its name to the military fortress built several ages ago by the Portuguese. The day we will leave the harbor and set sail nonstop to Martinique. This is a voyage for the true sailing enthusiast. An unforgettable passage to the beautiful island of Martinique, during which you will experience dolphins swimming along the ship, brilliant skies, astonishing cloud formations and the feeling of freedom on the open sea. It will almost be like going back in time for several decades. An unique opportunity to admire the historic Clipper in all of her glory! Open for all ages, minimum age 15 years.
