05/04/20 – Spain have proposed an extension to current restrictions through to 26th April 2020. This is still to be sanctioned legally early next week. There are reports, yet to be confirmed that the Canary Islands will be handed back autonomy in the decision making for policy within the Canary Islands which had been taken over by the Government of Spain at commencement of the restrictions.
Here at Canary Sail, we sit tight waiting for restrictions to be eased – both here and elsewhere. We continue to take reservations for later this year on our “no-obligation/no deposit” sailing course, cruise and charter initiative.
Furthermore, we are taking an increasing number of bookings for our “Splash Sea School” On-Line Theory Courses. Clients take advantage of the extra time at home and pre-study navigational theory in readiness for their practical sailing courses with Canary Sail later on. Please email us should you wish to avail of this facility. We will honour this discounted “package” of combined Theory and Practical when booked through Canary Sail. The practical sailing courses can be reserved or simply booked later when normality resumes.
Meanwhile, we wish you good health. Take care and stay safe.
Our thanks and best wishes to you all.

23/03/20 – During the last week of recreational restrictions here in the Canary Islands, our team spent the time supporting those who had joined us for sailing courses, cruises and charter before the action was announced. Those clients have stayed as guests on our yachts awaiting flights home. We have assisted with a Supermarket shopping service for provisions and with travel logistics for them to get home.
The yachts are now all vacated – a great opportunity for us to tidy up and maintain those areas which slip by in the busyness of our thriving sailing school activities.
The new yacht due for purchase will go ahead – a 2015 Bavaria 41 “Cruiser” will join our fleet by the end of this April as planned, ready for the recovery once the restrictions are lifted. We will be ready!
These restrictions are currently in place here in the Canaries updated just today until 12th April. It is quite probable these restrictions will be extended.
Clients who have booked already will be re scheduled to later dates, if necessary even into 2021. We are not in a position to offer any refunds. Thank you, your loyalty and support is much appreciated.
The really great news is that RESERVATIONS are still being placed with Canary Sail for Sailing Courses, Cruises and Charter for dates through this summer and beyond!
For those wishing to plan ahead and reserve sailing activities with us, we offer tentative dates later from this summer with NO DEPOSITS/NO FLIGHTS required. Simply email or call us with your required dates and we will send a “no obligation reservation” with booking deposits due only when the “Coronavirus All Clear” is announced. We hope to hear from you soon.
Meanwhile, our best wishes go out to you all.
Wishing you strength and resolve through this crisis.
Stay safe and we hope to meet you soon.
