Sunshine Sailing From Portugal to North Africa

Experience stunning scenery whilst sailing down the Portuguese coast, catch your first scent of Africa as we head towards wild Cape St Vincent, and savour the hustle & bustle of Tangier's exotic markets on our 10 day voyage.

If you need to build some miles towards your sailing certificates, our itinerary promises some exciting coastal sailing and night passages. You will also have the chance to practice and hone your skippering and passage planning skills.

With plenty of time ashore to discover the diversity of cultures and soak up the history of this seafaring region, this is really not the Mediterranean you thought you knew. From deserted windswept beaches to Flamenco and snake charming this is truly a memorable sailing trip with a difference.

Need a bit more time? Why not combine your stay with our Cruise to the Balearics , or arrive a few days earlier or leave a little later and have extra time enjoying quiet harbours.
