Stad Amsterdam:
IJmuiden (NL) - Porto (PT)

07 November - 17 November 2015

On Saturday November 7th the crew of the Clipper Stad Amsterdam will prepare the ship for her departure down south after a stay of almost a month in The Netherlands. The next morning the ship will set sail to Porto in Portugal. While sailing on the North Sea, the English Channel, past the Gulf of Biscay and on the Atlantic Ocean, you will experience the true beauty of a tall ship under sail. On Tuesday November 17th we will have to say goodbye and your sailing journey will end in Leixous, the harbor of Porto. This city on the North bank of the river Douro has much to offer! A perfect ending to your sailing adventure will be a stroll through one of the oldest European centres (registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and a tasting of the famous Port(o) wine. Open for all ages, minimum age 15 years.
