We will meet and welcome you as you arrive at our sailing base. Ideally, you will start preparations and safety brief in preparation for an early start the following morning. You are then invited to join us for drinks to meet the team, your instructors and fellow students or crew who start their full week courses. You will be made very welcome by the Canary Sail team and we can advise the best restaurants for you to sample!
Prepare the yacht including a full safety brief. Set sail for Los Gigantes, north Tenerife for an initial short “shakedown” sail to settle you all in. Relax for the evening in this charming marina offering a good choice of restaurants and relaxing bars.
Prepare to set off early for the sail up to Santa Cruz, La Palma (or Tazacorte). This is a full day sailing, usually on a beam reach (in NE winds) which should get you into your destination in time for dinner. Once again, a great choice of local restaurants awaits you all! The marina here is new and offers great facilities including relaxing bars around the marina, Wi-Fi, etc.
Maybe some time to look around this truly beautiful town before setting off again around the north of La Palma to the quite, relaxing location of Tazacorte. The marina facilities are new, the restaurants are good and the small village and beach offer a quaint, relaxed holiday atmosphere – a real gem!
Sail back to the west coast of La Gomera to Valle Gran Rey (Vueltas). This is a small fishing harbour offering the best fresh fish anywhere along with plenty of other, international choice of food. Good fun in the cocktail bar till late for those with energy enough!
Return sail back to home port. Remember – accommodation on board for your final evening is included!
