Join Fred. Olsen on a very special, once-in-a-lifetime holiday in 2017 and experience the thrill of the America’s Cup – the world’s most exhilarating and prestigious yacht race – in beautiful Bermuda.

This historic nautical extravaganza will test the skills of the world’s best sailors to the limit as they race their multi-million dollar catamarans at speeds pushing to 50mph; and you'll have a choice of vantage points from where to watch the drama unfold on the balmy blue waters. Take your pick of optional shore tours and you can gain access to the America's Cup Village; soak up the atmosphere in the grandstands, which offer fantastic views of the race; or even see the action up-close aboard a spectator boat. Will the British team – skippered by Olympic hero Sir Ben Ainslie – take the trophy home for the first time in history? You'll be perfectly placed to find out!

Furthermore, with a rare extended stay in Hamilton and stop at St George, you'll have plenty of time to experience the best that gorgeous Bermuda has to offer. You can while away the hours soaking up glorious sunshine on the soft-pink sands of some of the world’s best beaches; snorkel incredible coral reefs alongside colourful tropical fish; and admire the astonishing subterranean stalactites and stalagmites of the Crystal and Fantasy Caves. In Hamilton, don't miss the 18th century Royal Naval Dockyard, which today is home to shops, restaurants, galleries and more; and be sure to wander the bustling Front Street, where some of Bermuda's finest restaurants and bars are found. The historic, UNESCO-listed Old Town of St George – packed with architectural delights and British military fortifications – is a 'must explore' too. 

Either side of your unforgettable call to the oldest British Colony, you'll also visit a collection of wonderful Portuguese islands and cities. Before sailing to Bermuda, Boudicca will stop in Leixoes, for tours to delightful Oporto; magnificent Madeira, where gorgeous gardens and sweet wines await; Ponta Delgada, from where you can visit the stunning Sete Cidades crater lakes; and the city of Horta on Faial Island. On your journey home, you'll divert to the Azores once again, visiting Lajes das Flores, where rugged landscapes interspersed with lakes and waterfalls beg to be explored; and pretty Praia da Vitoria, which is home to a number of interesting historic structures, including the 15th century Igreja Matriz de Santa Cruz. 

Introducing our very special guest speakers: Skilled round-the-world sailor Paul Covell and knowledgeable ocean yachtsman Peter Roach will be joining you on board Boudicca to host insightful talks about sailing and the America's Cup. Peter and Paul's expertise and passion is sure to enhance your experience and the build the sense of excitement on board. 

Please note, this is an adult only sailing (18+).
