Stad Amsterdam:
Porto - Tangier

17 November - 22 November 2015

The first night of your stay on board the Clipper Stad Amsterdam will be spent in Leixoes, the harbor of Porto. You will have time to acquaint yourself with our ship, our crew and muse about new impressions. The next morning the voyage south will continue and we will set sail to Tangier, one of the oldest cities in Morocco. The city is located on the North African coast at the western entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. On this sailing trip the distance is approximately 435 nautical miles and the average speed about 5,5 knots. Arrival in Tangier will be on Saturday evening and you will have the opportunity to explore this beautiful city that night. Open for all ages, minimum age 15 years.
