Cross the Atlantic on a five-masted square rigger next spring on a one-off voyage hosted by TV naturalist Tony Soper. This unique opportunity from tall ship sailing specialist Star Clippers is a fantastic chance to spend time with Tony, one of the pioneers of adventure cruising and founder of the popular TV series Birdwatch, while experiencing the thrill of a transatlantic crossing under sail.
Tony Soper co-founded the BBC’s now famous Natural History Unit, for which he was the first wildlife cameraman and first film producer. In subsequent years, as a freelance presenter, in addition to Birdwatch, he fronted the film series Discovering Birds and Beside the Sea, and the long-running environmental series Nature on BBC2. He has presented many television films for BBC and for National Geographic and has written 14 books on birds, several of them best sellers.
This exciting adventure departs the UK for Barbados on April 11, spending one night in Barbados at the Hilton Hotel before boarding Royal Clipper on April 12. The crossing takes 16 days, with one stop at Punta Delgada in the Azores and endless time to sit and watch the sea, look out for dolphins and sea birds, gaze at the stars, read, enjoy the camaraderie of the al fresco Tropical Bar and learn all about sailing the world’s largest five-masted ship.
During the voyage, Tony will give five lectures and will mingle with the guests, including at a welcome cocktail on the first night and a farewell talk on the last night of the voyage before arriving in Malaga.
From £1,949 per person including flights, transfers, one night at the Barbados Hilton, 16 nights’ full board on Royal Clipper and port taxes.
