and join the Tecla in South Africa setting sail to the Azores

A voyage that will take you from the South Atlantic Ocean into the North Atlantic Ocean. Crossing the equator means you will turn from a pollywog into a shellback when you meet Neptune and his gang. This voyage is all about sailing. Possible stops on St Helena and Ascension Island, before getting to the Azores!

Voyages on board the Tecla are all about true adventure and exploring. Together with the 4-professional crew of the Tecla, you will set sail on this traditional beauty and learn more about the world, about sailing and the ocean. In total, there is space for 12 passengers, people like you, keen to see more of the world and travel there by boat!

With many miles ahead of you, sail will be set and the traditional S turn will be used to sail with the wind from the South Atlantic into the North Atlantic. Crossing the equator is a true experience. The changing weather, with changing clouds and winds until there is mostly sunshine and hardly a breeze when you meet Neptune!

With so many days at sea watches will become part of your day to day rhythm and sail changes will be your exercise of the day. Read more on your watches here.

And when you get to the Azores, make sure to leave a worthy drawing on the wall!

Tecla sailing the Arctic

Sailing in Iceland, there is one place that is a must to visit. In her exploration of Iceland the Tecla has discovered Hornstrandir to be more then just amazingly beautiful. Hornstrandir is a nature reserve full of life, full of growing, melting, developing nature, that is so close you can almost touch it. Dropping anchor at the bottom of a high cliff, you will be able to go ashore with the dinghy and explore the glacier, walk past waterfalls, look at nesting birds and be amazed at the Arctic foxes that will keep playing with each other, even with you close by.

Just imagine waking up, taking a cup of coffee outside and when you look around, you are surrounded by nature, calm water, hardly a sound to be heard.

Most of the Iceland voyages the Tecla will make, will bring you to Hornstrandir. With bays at just a day sailing away and several anchorages close together, there is so much to explore!

But not just walks is what makes your voyage so amazing. The sailing, the quiet, the wind, the somtimes cold – sometimes sunny days and the new friends you can make on board, make it complete.
