As part of our trips, the Eye of the Wind sails to selected ports, where you will explore the most beautiful and attractive sights. The most remarkable travel memories, however, come about by meeting interesting people on board, sharing jokes when performing daily routines, unexpected glimpses of wildlife and the influence of our constant companions: the wind and the weather. After spending only a few days at sea, many of our guests have the need to record their impressions in writing. Here, you can read the personal travel reports written by some of our guests.
Experience report by Todd McPencow (Atlantic crossing)
The trip was AMAZING!!! Everyone was fantastic. I loved every second of the adventure.
What I gave up by heading out on the journey from Bermuda to the Azores:
- 3 weeks of nightly story time with my son
- 3 weeks of spending time with my wife
- Celebrating Easter with family and friends
- Celebrating my birthday with my family
But it was all worth it! When I arrived in Bermuda and saw the 'Eye' sitting there, my breath was taken away by her beauty.
Experience report by Michael Barker
"That mainmast still looks high, but I am thinking about it now ..." Crossing the Atlantic Ocean from Bermuda to the Azores.
We finally set sail. It was daunting and exciting all at the same time. Setting sails on a tall ship is no easy task and was exhausting. I threw my back into the pulling and hauling as did everybody else. The ship was pitching and rolling from the get go. I looked up at the two tall masts dismayed at the crew who climbed all the way to the top to release the top sails. I have now mastered the helm and am allowed to steer the ship. Standing at the helm looking through and beyond this magnificent ship is extraordinary. I listened to music whilst lying in the jib net right at the front of the ship dangling over the ocean. What an awesome place to watch the sea pass.
