Saturday, 20 November, 2019 to Thursday, 19 December, 2019: Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain (Canary Islands) to Marigot, Saint Martin.
Embarkation takes place at 19:00 with a welcoming from the whole crew. Afterwards, there will be
dinner together in the comfortable lounge, where you will quickly feel at home on our vast deck space and soon get to know your fellow sailors.
After a safety briefing, the command "Cast off!" will be given the next day. The first time the sails are set
and fill up with wind, and the moment the engine goes silent – breathtaking! This special moment when
we depart for the Atlantic crossing is palpable for everyone on the ship. The fascination that emanates
from the ocean is experienced even more intensely on a tall ship. The smooth and steady up and down
of the hull in the waves, the vast ocean and surrounding nature are the ingredients for a wonderfully
relaxing holiday experience.
Sailing Away from Stress
In a world that seems to be turning ever faster, you will experience the ship as a place of tranquillity,
where you can leave the flood of information and the hectic pace of everyday life behind you.
A captain once coined the phrase "the ship is the doc". And seafaring does indeed have a healing, almost
therapeutic effect on many people. In harmony with the wind and the sea, discovering slowness is
something we actively encourage so that you can feel deeply relaxed on board.
Days and Weeks at Sea
Long bluewater sailing on the vast ocean is known to make seafarers hungry – and hardworking sailors need a good refreshment! You can look forward to the excellent onboard food and drink, which regularly receives
the top mark in our customer satisfaction surveys. Be inspired! Whenever a fresh trade wind blows across the deck outside, you can make yourself comfortable in the homely saloon with a cup of tea below deck, and browse through the extensive onboard library or DVD
This is where you will disembark: Marigot / Saint Martin
Long before the Caribbean island of Saint Martin – which is our destination – appears on the horizon, the Eye of the Wind will already have become the ship of your dreams. The modern Marigot marina in the French part of the island will be our berthing spot. Make the most of your stay on Saint Martin island for a relaxing day at the breathtaking Dawn Beach, a hike along the rugged
cliffs of Pointe Blanche Bay, or a boat trip through Simpson Bay Lagoon. Every day, several cruise ships sail into Philipsburg, which is the largest port. There is a wide range of tourist attractions, from jet skiing and
snorkelling tours to casino and beach visits in Great Bay.
In the bustling shopping mile on Front Street, typical local handcrafted goods are sold in a rich variety of colours typical for the Caribbean. Our tip: Saint Martin is considered the 'culinary capital of the Caribbean' – do
not miss the local specialities made from the guava fruit.
