Voyage to Europe, Africa, Caribbean and Canada

Two transatlantic crossings, the North Atlantic, the English Channel, the North Sea, the Baltic Sea, the Caribbean Sea and various coastal waters are all included in this incredible voyage.  

The voyage begins in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada in the spring of 2016 and concludes in the same port in the summer of 2017.  Along the way, the ship will visit ports in the UK, France, Germany, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, the Canary Islands, Senegal, Cape Verde, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, Bermuda, USA and Canada. 

Transatlantic Voyage

For years, we've wanted to make another voyage to Europe, Africa and the Caribbean, to return to some of our favourite ports and to sail in the prevailing westerly winds in the North Atlantic and the sweet trade winds from Cape Verde to the Caribbean.

We're happy to announce the Transatlantic Voyage, starting in October 2015. Starting and ending at Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada, complete a circle of the Atlantic basin under square sail. Along the way, call at ports in the Azores, Spain, Portugal, Senegal and the West Indies. Sail for the full six months of the voyage or sail for a leg of the voyage. 

Anyone can join the crew, all you need is a strong back and a willing heart. No sailing experience is necessary. As a trainee, you'll be involved in all aspects of sailing the ship, learning under sail from our qualified professional crew. 

If you've dreamed of sailing a tall ship across the Atlantic, this is your chance!
