Routes & dates

Sailors have long been some of the world's great adventurers. There's something magical about sailing to a new country, anchoring in a bay next to icebergs or berthing in a town surrounded by desert, mountains or jungle. Everyone on board is passionate about exploring new places and there's plenty of time to head ashore most days and get a real feeling for the local sights, traditions, culture and cuisine. Sailing, training & exploring.
