This is a 1000 mile journey to Bermuda, experiencing life at sea, and nights of star-filled wonder.

Leaving our anchorage in Marigot, St Martin, we make the 1000 nautical mile voyage to Bermuda.  Take the helm, become a member of the deck crew, and settle into the watch system, as life at sea takes over.  You will learn every aspect of sailing a classic tall ship on this 11-day ocean sailing voyage.  As you leave the islands of the Caribbean behind, fully immerse yourself into life on the ocean, with golden horizons and deep blue waters.

Bermuda is only 21 square miles but comprises of 181 named islands sitting way out in the Atlantic, hundreds of miles from the USA and several thousand from the UK. An elegant destination of perfect sandy beaches palms and colonial old world charm Bermuda is decidedly British compared with the Bahamas. The beautiful colonial town of St George’s is sure to entice you, with its waterside bars and restaurants. Don’t forget to try a Rum Swizzle or a Dark and Stormy, the famous Bermudan cocktails.

Blue Clipper

Guest berths: 20 Rig: Gaff Schooner

Built-in Sweden in 1991, tall ship Blue Clipper is an impressive three-masted gaff rig schooner. With a clipper bow, original teak deck and elegant stern, she mixes a traditional tall ship feel with a relatively modern build giving guests an authentic experience with all the mod cons.

She has spent many years sailing all over the world from the Caribbean to the Arctic and is a frequent participant in the European Tall Ship regattas. Originally owned by the Brandy company Hennessy and named ‘Spirit of Hennessey, she appeared in many Tv programmes and commercials before being private bought in the late 90’s.

On deck, she boasts ample space for her guests to become fully immersed in hands-on sailing; heaving the ropes, hoisting the sails, learning ropes skills and even taking the helm. She has 3 kayaks and 3 paddle-boards for guest use while on anchor so you can explore even further inshore.

A spacious saloon, wheelhouse and galley also sit at deck level while below decks has been well-considered with six ensuite cabins a family cabin that sleeps six. All cabins have a porthole for natural light and heating/air conditioning.

In 2016 she started her new life with her current owner and now spends her summers sailing Northern Europe and Scotland and the Hebrides and her winters chasing the Caribbean sunshine.
