Week 1 - Typical Itinerary

Day 1 (Saturday – 17.00)

We meet and welcome you on arrival to our Tenerife South sailing base. Your Skipper checks into your chosen yacht and all are invited to join us for drinks to meet the team and the other yacht´s crew(s) you will be sailing in company of.  You will be made very welcome by the Canary Sail team and we can advise the best restaurants for you to sample!

Day 2 (Sunday)

Prepare the yacht including a safety brief and plan assisted by our “Lead Flotilla Skipper”. Set sail for Los Gigantes, north Tenerife or San Sebastian, La Gomera 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.

Day 3 (Monday)

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.

Day 4/5 (Tuesday/Wednesday)

Maybe some time to look around this truly beautiful town before setting off again around the north of La Palma to the quiet, relaxing location of Tazacorte. Again the marina facilities are new, the restaurants good and the small village and beach offer a quaint, relaxed holiday atmosphere – a real gem!

Day 6/7 (Thursday/Friday)

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 to base – Marina San Miguel, Tenerife for a day of rest.
