Exploring Southern Spain. This 10 day journey will take you from Cadiz, via the Strait of Gibraltar to the Mediterranean Sea. On the way the plan is to visit Cartagena, before reaching Alicante. Enjoy sailing in the mild Spanish climate and exploring beautiful places along the way. Languages on board are mainly German and English. For all Windseekers, minimum age 18 years.
The oldest city in Spain, with a wealth of historic landmarks. Water is never far away, as the old town is built on a narrow stretch of land jutting out into the Mediterranean Sea. Get lost in the Old town with its many narrow, winding streets and visit one of the many parks that dot the city. Its many cathedrals and plazas are also well worth a visit. Go to La Caleta beach, at La Viña, the old fisherman quarter. Go catch a Flamenco concert and feast your taste buds with the fresh sea foods.
Alicante is a port city on the Costa Blanca, Mediterranean coast of Spain. Climb up to the 16-century Castle of Santa Barbara for a great view over the city and take a stroll through the lively Explanada de Espana with its many cafes and restaurants. Visit Barrio Santa Cruz for a taste of authentic local culture and if you love everything sailing-related don't miss the Volvo Ocean Race Museum.
