  • Making miles, being at sea for several days. Feeling like a real sailor. 

For this sailing adventure, making miles takes centre stage! We cordially invite you to join us as a co-sailor and become part of our seaworthy crew. The Atlantis sets sail again in 2024, heading south. The popular milestone cruise is back on the programme.
On this extended cruise, we will cross the Kiel Canal, the North Sea, sail through the English Channel and across the Bay of Biscay until we  reach our final destination, Cascais. On this trip, you will feel the temperature rise by a degree almost every day as we are heading south, and experience many different forms of the sea and sailing.
More information
We have a clear route and know when we want to reach our destination. Shore leave and stopovers are planned if the weather is favourable and time permits. If the wind lets us down, we have the engine at our side. We invite you to join us, become part of our nautical crew and support us with all the tasks that arise on board. This could be taking on night watches or hoisting the sails. During your night watch, you will see constellations that you normally only recognise from the map.

Fluorescent algae glow in the water like natural works of art. With a bit of luck, dolphins will accompany us at night, offering a glittering natural spectacle. Savour the culinary delights served by our professional crew despite the capricious weather. Experience pure sailing and unspoilt nature with us.

Our journey takes us along the English and French coast, past Guernsey and Jersey, until we finally reach the westernmost point of France, Brest. Here, the steep cliffs, the roaring Atlantic waves and the imposing lighthouse of Pointe Saint-Mathieu are ready to impress you. We sail on into the Bay of Biscay, an area that every true sailor should sail through at least once. Regardless of the exact route, one thing is certain: this cruise will be unforgettable. The deep blue sea, the warm rays of sunshine, the clear starry nights and the feeling of being a real sailor, part of a crew on a tall ship - who hasn't dreamed of this at least once? 

Possible stopovers: Harlingen, Guernsey, Brest

Note: Wind and weather can have a strong influence on the journey. We reserve the right to change the route in the event of unforeseen circumstances.

Luggage list

  1. It is advised to travel with a travel bag instead of a hard suitcase, since it is better to stow.
  2. A passport, if you need it for the planned trip. Otherwise an identity card is sufficient. (Inform yourself in advance)
  3. Oilskins are not necessary, but a good rainproof jacket, rain trousers and sturdy shoes are always good. Be it for hiking, cycling or helping on deck.
  4. Don't forget sunglasses, a sun hat or cap and sun cream, even when the sun is not visible you can get quite burnt.
  5. A good book for a bit of solitude or a good parlour game to play together with your fellow sailors.
  6. A camera! So that you can capture your memories and share them with those at home.
  7. Cash, because here you can only pay your drinks bill in cash. But also think about the currency of the country you are travelling to so you can buy a souvenir. 


Good to know: Would you like to travel alone and not share a cabin? Then you can book a single traveller supplement, which corresponds to the normal travel price + 50%.

Tip: Don't miss the opportunity to experience the train journey from Cascais to Lisbon. During the journey, you will be accompanied by fantastic views as the route runs along the Tagus River and along the coast. In Cascais itself, the railway station is located right in the heart of the city.
