Day 1 to 16 (15 nights)

Antigua - Madeira

Atlantic Crossing West- East (approx. 15 nights) from Antigua to Madeira Note: the exact cruise plan of sailing yachts is never present, due to weather conditions.., that's sailing!

Overview

Antigua – Madeira

Combine the best of two worlds – an authentic sailing experience on large sailing yachts – without the pressure of fixed routings, and the comfort and service of a cruise.

We merge the best of the world of sailing with the world of traditional cruises. Authentic and individual sailing, just as if you had chartered your own yacht, is combined with the attentive and caring service of our professional crew and the comfort of a cruise ship.

Thereby, we do not follow a strict routing during the mostly one-week sailing cruises, but go by wind, weather and the desires of our guests. Hence, if the wind is good, we may sail even a little into the night, accompanied by a breathtaking view of the stars above…

And if the wind is calm, we just find the closest bay and enjoy a refreshing swim, go snorkelling or take a stroll on the beach.., pure seafaring, far from the mass tourism of large cruise liners.

Whenever possible, we actually set sails, but only for about 4-7 hours a day. In the remaining time there is plenty opportunity to take a swim right off board, to go on an individual excursion to the shore and get to know the country and its people, and much more…

Please Note: More Caribbean sailing cruises are available, not all of them are listed online. Please contact us for more details.

Day 1

Mahe

Embarkation at the Inter-Island Quay at 10:30hrs, followed by the Captain's welcome briefing. Depart Port Victoria at 12:00hrs, sailing from Mahé to a late afternoon anchorage at Round Island, just off the isle of Praslin. In the evening, introduce yourself to Creole cuisine with a welcome barbecue dinner onboard.

Day 2

Praslin

Sail to Praslin, Seychelles' second-largest inhabited island, for disembarkation to the famous World Heritage Site, the Vallee de Mai Nature Reserve. This ancient forest is home to the curiously shaped double coconut, the coco de mer, as well as the Black Parrot, unique to Praslin. Explore the valley's eerie pathways beneath its canopy of massive palms, before returning onboard for afternoon opportunities to dive, snorkel or enjoy other water sports.

Day 3

La Digue

A morning sail brings the vessel to La Digue, a sleepy island community where ox-carts and bicycles still remain the most common mode of transportation throughout the island. La Digue is home to the endemic Seychelles Paradise Flycatcher, and is perhaps most famous for its massive granite boulder formations at Anse Source d'Argent, which is thought to be the most photographed beach on earth. Explore the entire island by bicycle, perhaps stopping by Union Estate, a sprawling network of traditional island activities, including a copra mill, vanilla plantation, and shipyard.

Day 4

Grande Soeur and Petite Soeur

In the morning the vessel sails toward Grande Soeur and Petite Soeur (the Sisters) for excellent snorkelling and diving, and for a relaxing visit of these unique and completely uninhabited tropical islands. In the afternoon, visit Coco Island, one of Seychelles’ tiny granite jewels, a fantastic spot for snorkelling within a kaleidoscope of tropical fish.

Day 5

Booby Island and Aride Island

Sail to Booby Island for a morning of diving and water sports. After lunch, sail to Aride Island, a globally important nature reserve with more native bird species than any other island, including five endemics and the world's largest population of 3 species (Lesser Noddy, Audubon's Shearwater and Seychelles Warbler). The nature trail leads to a spectacular cliff-top view with the largest frigatebird roost outside of Aldabra. Aride is the only natural location in the world for Wright's Gardenia and 400 species of fish have been recorded around the island.

Day 6

Curieuse

In the morning disembark at Curieuse for a visit of this virtually uninhabited island. Experience the island's vast mangrove forests and its giant tortoise farm, along with the historic ruins of this former leper colony. After a barbecue lunch on the island, enjoy an array of water sports or simply relax and enjoy the island's beautiful beach and turquoise waters. Sail to St. Pierre, the small granite outcrop just off Praslin for more water-sports.

Day 7

Ile Seche

After breakfast, enjoy a leisurely sail back towards Mahé, with a last stop at St. Anne for more snorkelling or diving, followed by a farewell barbecue. Overnight at Ile Seche.

Overview

Sailing around the Seychelles

Isolated in the Indian Ocean and the only mid-ocean islands of granite formation to be found on earth, the Seychelles archipelago is often mentioned in the same breath as the lost ‘Garden of Eden.’

The highest peaks of a submerged mountain range that broke apart from the supercontinent of Gondwana millions of years ago, the Seychelles’ inner islands are the most ancient islands on earth – no other mid-ocean isles of granite formation can be found anywhere else. This curious geological feature was one of several curiosities about the islands that led the famed British General, Charles Gordon, to declare Seychelles the site of the biblical Garden of Eden.

Situated some 1,500 kilometres east of mainland Africa, and northeast of the island of Madagascar, this tiny island group boasts a population of just 90,000 inhabitants, with a warm, tropical climate all year-round and some of the most stunningly beautiful beaches in the world.

Mahé, the largest island, is home to the majority of the population and represents the archipelago’s commercial and transportation hub, with the country’s only international airport linking the islands to the rest of the globe. The island is characterised by its towering granite peaks, lush mist forests and dozens of striking coves and beaches.

The second largest island, Praslin, is home to the legendary Vallée de Mai, the UNESCO World Heritage Site where the Coco de Mer grows in abundance. This double coconut, which curiously resembles the shape of a woman’s pelvis, was another facet of General Gordon’s theory about Seychelles as the Garden of Eden – he believed it to be the real forbidden fruit.

La Digue, the third-most populous island, moves at an even slower pace: bicycles remain the most common mode of transportation, for both its residents and visiting tourists. The huge granite boulders that adorn the coastline at Anse Source D’Argent have led some to believe that it could very well be the most photographed beach in the world.

While Mahé, Praslin and La Digue may be the principal islands, dozens of smaller ‘satellite’ isles nearby offer further opportunity to explore and admire. Every island has a character and charm all of its own, with colorful individual histories and unique natural features, some with steep granite cliffs and others comprising pristine coral atolls. Together, they make up a surprisingly diverse destination of great natural beauty, rare flora and fauna that have been cocooned in isolation for millions of years, and a friendly multi-cultural people eager to welcome you to their shores.

Highlights

Diving and snorkelling in the Seychelles reveal the best of the magical underwater world that the Indian Ocean has to offer. Unique granite boulder formations, coral reefs and wrecks are home to colourful tropical fish, turtles, sharks, rays and many other species. Some of the best dive sites in Seychelles’ inner islands are easily accessible on our cruises. Each vessel is certified as a PADI dive resort, and has a dedicated PADI dive instructor onboard to accommodate the needs of both seasoned and novice divers alike. • All of our cruises include complimentary equipment for kayaking, stand up paddle boarding (SUP) and snorkelling (masks and fins). We also offer the opportunity to enjoy traditional bottom-line fishing in certain areas, with our chef ready to prepare fresh Seychelles-style sashimi or grilled fish in the event of a successful catch. • For Sailing enthusiasts Sea Star and Sea Bird feature a modern furling system. • Each day onboard presents a new opportunity to explore isolated bays and coves, colourful marine parks, and protected nature reserves or uninhabited islands. Spotting the incredibly rare Magpie Robin and other endemic birds, visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Vallee de Mai, or getting up close and personal with a giant tortoise, are just a few of the many special experiences that await on the islands we visit.

Kairós

In Greek mythology, Kairós symbolizes the ‘perfect moment’ one has to seize right when it comes by.

That said: Welcome on Board!

The sketch of Kairós follows the drawings of classic sailing schooners in the 20’s of last century. Those were glorious times of legendary sailing vessels, when famous designers like William Fife from Scotland, Charles E. Nicholson from England or John Alden and Nathanael Herreshoff from the US created yachts of unequalled elegance and style.

Following these traditions Kairós was built with a hull of steel and all finishing’s in teak and mahogany. The designers choose to avoid larger superstructures on deck in order to create as much free space as possible.

Kairós is very fast and seaworthy. With the light and middle winds and even under engine, she already reaches a speed of 10 kn. Kairós can easily tack against the wind and even the sails don’t need to be reduced up to 6 Beaufort. Sailing with the Kairós is a true experience!

Kairós can accommodate a maximum of 18 guests in 6 cabins of est. 11m² with double beds (all with their own bathroom) and 3 cabins of  est. 9m² with bunk beds and one with a double bed (all with their own bathroom).

Corfu - Ionian Islands - Albania - Corfu

Sailing Yacht Cruise from Corfu around the Ionian Islands, along the coastline of Albania and back to Corfu. Note: the exact cruise plan of sailing yachts is never present, due to weather conditions.., that's sailing!

Overview

Corfu – Ionian Islands – Albania – Corfu

Combine the best of two worlds – an authentic sailing experience on large sailing yachts – without the pressure of fixed routings, and the comfort and service of a cruise.

We merge the best of the world of sailing with the world of traditional cruises. Authentic and individual sailing, just as if you had chartered your own yacht, is combined with the attentive and caring service of our professional crew and the comfort of a cruise ship.

Thereby, we do not follow a strict routing during the mostly one-week sailing cruises, but go by wind, weather and the desires of our guests. Hence, if the wind is good, we may sail even a little into the night, accompanied by a breathtaking view of the stars above…

And if the wind is calm, we just find the closest bay and enjoy a refreshing swim, go snorkelling or take a stroll on the beach.., pure seafaring, far from the mass tourism of large cruise liners.

Whenever possible, we actually set sails, but only for about 4-7 hours a day. In the remaining time there is plenty opportunity to take a swim right off board, to go on an individual excursion to the shore and get to know the country and its people, and much more…

Please Note: More Mediterranean sailing cruises are available, not all of them are listed online. Please contact us for more details.

Kairós

In Greek mythology, Kairós symbolizes the ‘perfect moment’ one has to seize right when it comes by.

That said: Welcome on Board!

The sketch of Kairós follows the drawings of classic sailing schooners in the 20’s of last century. Those were glorious times of legendary sailing vessels, when famous designers like William Fife from Scotland, Charles E. Nicholson from England or John Alden and Nathanael Herreshoff from the US created yachts of unequalled elegance and style.

Following these traditions Kairós was built with a hull of steel and all finishing’s in teak and mahogany. The designers choose to avoid larger superstructures on deck in order to create as much free space as possible.

Kairós is very fast and seaworthy. With the light and middle winds and even under engine, she already reaches a speed of 10 kn. Kairós can easily tack against the wind and even the sails don’t need to be reduced up to 6 Beaufort. Sailing with the Kairós is a true experience!

Kairós can accommodate a maximum of 18 guests in 6 cabins of est. 11m² with double beds (all with their own bathroom) and 3 cabins of  est. 9m² with bunk beds and one with a double bed (all with their own bathroom). A crew of at least 7 cares for the operation of the vessel and the well-being of the guests.

The three ships of Sailing-Classics; Chronos, Kairós and Rhea are all classified under the CCV-Code (Commercial Cruising Vessel) and sail under Dutch flag. They have a 2-mast-ketch rigging as well as an optimized keel and hull to further improve their sailing performances.

The Chronos has a hull length of 48m (overall length 54m) and a width of 9.70m. A total sail area of est. 990m². On deck there is an aft helm stand and an outside seating area as well as a saloon with bar. The entrances to the cabins are in a second decks house, where also the ship’s office and an interior helm stand are located.

The Kairós has an overall length of 38m. and a width of 8.2m. A total sail area of est. 556m². She has a large teak deck with plenty of space for sunbathing and relaxing. Up to 18 guests may take breakfast, lunch or dinner under the sun roof next to the deckhouse with steering stand and bar. Below deck there is a large saloon with plenty of space for meals and meetings.

The Rhea has a hull length of 48m (overall length 54m) and a width of 9.70m. A total sail area of est. 990m². On deck there is an aft helm stand and an outside seating area as well as a saloon with bar.
