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 a relatively short “shakedown” sail to settle you all in. 

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 or South 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! An alternative option, weather allowing is a sail south to the tiny Islands of El Hierro.

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 back to home marina of San Miguel, Tenerife. Remember – accommodation on board for your final evening is included!

Day 8 (Saturday)

Leave the yacht at 09.00 latest please for your return home or to continue your holiday on La Gomera or Tenerife.  Please see our stay page for accommodation.
