24 DISCOVER THE 'GOLDEN AGE' OF SAIL

WITH STAR CLIPPERS

For a cruising experience with a difference, look no further than Star Clippers. Operating three of the world's largest and

tallest sailing vessels, the company's unique cruising concept offers passengers an authentic sailing experience, with all the

activities, amenities and atmosphere of a private yacht.

Step aboard one of Star Clippers'

three tall ships, Royal Clipper, Star

Clipper and Star Flyer, for a voyage to

remember. These ships are a shining

example to other ships of their kind,

cutting through the water with all the

grace of a bird in full flight. Their Clipper

heritage is reflected in every inch of

their polished brass and gleaming

brightwork, while the comfort and

elegance of their opulent dining

rooms and outdoor tropical bars are

reminiscent of travelling on a private

yacht.

The perfect balance of maritime

nostalgia and modern cruising,

passengers are invited to help raise the

sails, learn how to tie a knot and can visit

the open bridge any time they please.

The more adventurous can go so far

as to lie in the bowsprit net suspended

above the rushing sea or climb the

mast to the Crow's Nest for stunning

panoramic views as they sail.

TALL SHIPS THAT DREAMS ARE

MADE OF

Inspired by the legendary sailing ship

Preussen, which dominated the seas for

eight years before it was involved in an

accident in 1910, Royal Clipper is the

world's largest and only five-mast, fullrigged sailing ship and carries just 227

guests.

Sister ships, Star Clipper and Star Flyer, are

both four-masted ships and carry 170 guests

each. On board guests will experience

a 2:1 guest to crew ratio, enhancing the

experience of pampered comfort.

All three ships feature expansive teak

decks, swimming pools, informal

dining, a convivial Tropical Bar and a

comfortable piano bar where you can sit

and while away the hours whilst enroute

to your next port of call.

LIFE ON BOARD

This is not cruising in the ordinary sense.

Aboard Star Clippers, you will find that

there are no rigid schedules. You are

free to do as you wish with your days

and evenings. Local performers may be

brought on board to entertain, giving

passengers an authentic taste of the

local music and arts of their current

destination.

You'll enjoy the conviviality of fellow

shipmates while a live band plays

tropical tunes from a real-life paradise.

The Captain and crew are superb

improvisers of the kind of light-hearted

fun you'll only find on Star Clippers.

The Captain's daily briefing on deck is

wonderfully informative, and a chance

to hear some great story-telling as

well. And there are other events and

activities during the day and night that

have evolved from Star Clippers' sailing

heritage. In fact, past passengers say

that it's the easy-going informality of Star

Clippers that makes a cruise with them

so special.

different water-related activities are

It is the unique combination of sailing

tradition and pampered relaxation that is

the essence of Star Clippers. For within

the setting of a magnificently evocative

tall ship is a world for those who seek

an authentic sailing adventure without

sacrificing creature comforts.

As thousands of square feet of sail unfurl

above you, you will feel the elation of

those mariners of long ago. Setting

sail to the sounds of Vangelis' '1492

Conquest of Paradise', you won't be able

to contain this excitement because this is

Star Clippers and the adventure has only

just begun…

of destinations to choose from including
