This 800 nautical miles of blue water sailing is ideal for building sea miles and tall ships sailing experience. Enjoy a unique and exciting holiday with us!

Set sail from Lisbon's 25 de Abril Bridge golden suspension bridge. For this week you are invited to take part in all aspects of sailing the ship, including the ships watch system! Learn new sailing skills and feel like a true member of the crew on board the Santa Maria Manuela.

While you will spend some time learning and helping so you get to your destination, there will be other fun things to do. When you are not involved in the sailing there's plenty of time to fish, read, play board games or share sailing stories by the bar. There will be many people who chose this unique trip just like you and you are sure to make a few friends by the end of the week.

We will disembark in the Azores on the last day and invite you to explore! The Azores is a magnificent archipelago filled with wildlife and great views. Explore the islands’ villages or go diving to see all the life below the water’s surface

Itinerary
Lisboa, Portugal
Azores
The boat
Four masted schooner Santa Maria Manuela offers adventure voyages, island hopping, ocean voyages, diving and oceanographic expeditions for individuals of all ages and groups. At 223ft long (63 meters) she is the largest tall ship Classic Sailing offers activity holidays on, but the crew to guest ratio is excellent so you will be well looked after. This historic Portuguese tall ship has excellent facilities on board and plenty of holiday toys like dive ribs, 'stand up paddle boards' and kayaks, but this is also a ship where you can take part in the hands on sailing, join a night watch or climb the rigging.

Santa Maria Manuela was once the flagship of the Portuguese cod fishing fleet. Built in 1937, in the same year as her sister ship Creoula, she was designed to fish the Newfoundland Banks and rich fishing waters of Arctic Greenland. She often carries the small rowing and sailing dories that would have set out from the mother ship to fish for cod, so you can continue her fishing tradition from small boats or from her huge wooden decks.

I am a passionate sailor, and whenever possible spend my weekends in or around the water with my family. In 2017, after 13 years, I stopped working at the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race and moved to Portugal to work on the Santa Maria Manuela project to run sailing holidays.

    Terrific crew & ship and a lovely passage to the Azores. Crew & Guests very good and patient with someone who only spoke English. It would be difficult to find a better one.
    This is a terrifically well run vessel, or was on this trip. Excellent accommodation, well serviced by a professional crew. All very friendly, helpful and willing to give information throughout. Many opportunities to get involved in most aspects of the ships operation & involvement in the vessel's past history.
    The Island was beautiful and rather unexpected.
    Best wishes & Good Luck for the future.
    Very many thanks
