Sail across the English Channel from Cherbourg and into the North Sea with Eye of the Wind to reach the port of Elsfleth. A great chance to gain sea miles!

Sail with Eye of the wind as she makes her way to the German port of Elsfleth, across the North Sea. This sailing trip is all about making ground and will be made up longer sailing passages with some stops ashore.

The English Channel can be a rather challenging but exciting sailing area, where the forces of the tidal current determine the rhythm of nature. The Channel is one of the most diversified sea areas with a high level of traffic – a paradise for ship spotters and lovers of the maritime scenery alike. Enjoy the ease and quietness on board for five days, while experiencing an unforgettable active holiday under sail.

After receiving safety instructions and an introduction to sailing from the ship’s crew, you will soon be able to take part in sailing yourself. Hands-on assistance on deck is always voluntary, so if you want, you can just relax and enjoy watching the sailing manoeuvers and the traditional seamanship in action every day. If you like, you can make yourself comfortable below deck in the comfortable lounge, browse through a good book from the large onboard library, or see which DVDs are available

The decision on which port or anchorage to call on in the evening is made by the captain on the same day and depends on the wind and weather conditions – whenever possible, your wishes will be taken into account. This ensures that your sailing trip is a pleasant mixture of adventure, relaxation, active participation and pure enjoyment. Weather permitting, we will have the opportunity to sail out of the harbour in the evening and sail at night – another highlight of every cruise.

Here you have another opportunity to reminisce with your fellow sailors about the adventures of the past days at sea, or maybe to ‘spin a little sailor’s yarn’. Some exciting and eventful days on the Baltic Sea now lie behind us. Our crew on board will keep you in good memory, and you will most certainly enjoy sharing your experiences with friends ‘onshore’.

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.

This windjammer offers luxurious holidays on board, cruising some of the most stunning locations in the world.

Although the ship has a large, capable engine, traditional sailing is naturally the preferred mode of travel so there is plenty to get stuck into on deck. The crew are extremely experienced and ready to teach you the workings of a classic tall ship, so no prior knowledge is necessary. 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. A large dining area, library and sun deck offer a multitude of different spaces to unwind and to get to know your fellow guests and crew.
