We leave London via the Thames and head out to sea, where we raise the sails. The ship’s movements change, the air here is fresh and you can smell the salt. We change course towards the mouth of the IJ. We sail as much as we can. In parts where safety requires it, we will motor. This sailing trip is most enjoyable if you help the crew sail the ship. No sailing experience is required. The crew will be happy to explain everything about sailing and navigating the ship. If you like to steer or climb the jib net, that is certainly possible. But nothing is compulsory. If you prefer to read a book or enjoy the view, that’s fine too.

London is about 200 nautical miles away from Amsterdam. That means it will take us on average between 36 and 72 hours to reach our destination. The exact arrival time depends on wind direction and strength.

Sailing schedule:

Day 1 – In the evening, everyone comes on board in London. Depending on the tide and weather, we leave the same evening or early the next morning.
Day 2 – Departure from London. Exact departure time depends on the tide. Overnight at sea as we sail on.
Day 3 – Day at sea. The whole day is spent sailing. At night, we sleep at sea as we continue sailing.
Day 4 – Arrival and disembarkation in Amsterdam

Weather conditions may not permit safe sailing to Amsterdam. The captain will then put together an alternative sailing schedule.
