Become part of a tall ship crew as you sail the Atlantic from the island of Bermuda to the Azores.
Sailing in harmony with nature and the weather is what is at the heart of any such journey. Count the nautical miles, maybe climb the mast from time to time and enjoy the view – experiencing all of this during an Atlantic cruise on our tall ship will fill you with endless joy.
Bermuda is an Atlantic destination of perfect sandy beaches, palms and authentic colonial charm. The beautiful colonial town of St George’s is sure to entice you, with its waterside bars and restaurants.
The rhythm of the ocean will determine life on board as you establish a routine that is relaxing and comfortable but keeps you occupied. Sailing at night with absolutely no light pollution makes the night sky brilliant. Experience all the seas moods from glassy clams to white-capped swells launching flying fish from crest to crest.
This ocean passage is ideal for the ambitious sailor, world traveller or determined romantic. Some people love the physical challenge of being hands-on crew, others muck in but their real passion might be ocean bird spotting or just finding time for themselves.
This voyage will end in the Azores. For in-the-know travellers, the Azores have long represented a beckoning blip on the radar of possible destinations. The exposed tips of vast underwater mountains, the Azores lie on the nexus of the European, American and African tectonic plates, and they bear witness to the forces forever shaping our planet. This is a world of fumaroles, mudpots and scalding springs; of caverns, columns and grottoes formed from once molten rock; of blue lakes ringed by forests of laurel and cedar, and green pastures patterning the slopes of calderas.

Eye of the Wind
Guest berths: 16 Rig: Brig
With incredible amounts of character, Eye of the Wind has all the modern amenities and an authentic interior, with a teak maritime décor. Oozing with maritime history, the opportunity to sail on Eye of the Wind is one in a lifetime. This beautiful ship is as eye-catching as they get and she has even featured in several movies, including White Squall, due to her breath-taking appearance as a 1911 brig.

Join the crew at any number of the large maritime festivals they appear at, cruise the European coast, or relish some winter sun and climb aboard for their voyages in the Caribbean – including a transatlantic crossing back from the Caribbean to Portugal.
Thanks to the 6 luxurious cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms, Eye of the Wind can sleep a total of 16 guests ensuring ocean passages can be travelled in true comfort.
