Star Clippers to sail from UK
Tall ship sailing specialist Star Clippers will bring the 170-passenger square rigger, Star Flyer, to the UK in 2012 for the first time since the vessel's launch in 1991, as part of the company's first ever season sailing the Baltic.
During summer 2012 , Star Flyer will cruise out of Hamburg, Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen as well as to and from Southampton. Star Flyer will be seen in the Solent and harboured in the British port on 5th May and 1st September 2012, attracting plenty of attention with her four masts, thousands of square feet of sail and graceful lines, modelled on the great clipper ships of the 19th century.
Star Flyer arrives in Southampton on 5th May, after a 21 day trans-Atlantic sailing. Star Flyer then departs Southampton for a five-night voyage to Hamburg, via Amsterdam - a unique chance to sail on a genuine tall ship from a British port. The five night sailing costs from £1,035 per person, including all meals on board and port taxes. Excluding return flights from Hamburg.
On August 25, 2010, Star Flyer will sail from Hamburg to Southampton on a seven night voyage via Amsterdam, Ijmuiden, Antwerp and Zeebrugge, presenting another chance to sail up the Solent in one of the most dramatic-looking ships afloat.
This seven night sailing costs from £1,490 per person, including all meals on board and port taxes. Excludes One-way flight to Hamburg extra.
On September 1, the head-turning square rigger departs Southampton once more, prior to sailing to Lisbon and on to Malaga, from where she will operate five seven night cruises in the Mediterranean prior to her transatlantic crossing back to her winter base of Costa Rica.
