Tenacious:
Antigua (AG) - Southampton (GB)

28 May - 06 July 2018

Bringing the Tenacious back home from the Caribbean. Step on board the beautiful wooden Tall Ship in sunny Antigua for 40 days worth of adventure! Though nothing is set in stone when it comes to sailing, the plan for this trip is to visit Bermuda and then cross to the remote archipelago of the Azores in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, before setting course for Great Britain. This thrilling journey includes visiting the Caribbean, crossing the ocean and a fair possibility of meeting dolphins and maybe even whales. What more could you want from the holiday of a lifetime! Open to all able-bodied and disabled trainees, minimum age 16 years.

Ports

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.

Southampton, on the shores of the Solent, is the largest port of England. The bustling town offers plenty of distractions, and is known (sometimes reviled) for its brutalist architecture. However, the city hosts a number of fine museums, the Tudor House, and long stretches of medieval walls. Also, the beautiful English countryside is just a short drive away. The yearly Southampton boat show in september should be on any Windseeker's calendar. And don't forget to visit the Isle of Wight!
