Travel details:

  • Unforgettable sailing cruise to London
  • 6 days including 2 nights in London
  • Assisted sailing
  • Checking in and out at the NDSM shipyard in Amsterdam
  • Overnight stays in London at St Katharine Docks overlooking Tower Bridge

We leave the NDSM wharf, a former shipyard on the IJ in Amsterdam. We sail across the North Sea Canal towards the 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 Thames. 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.
