An ocean voyage of 17 days. Sail from Salvador in Brazil to the capital of Urugay, Montevideo. This is an exciting journey where you will sail with the trade winds first until you meet the cold Falkland current. Enjoy the sunny and exotic ports and the sailing in between. Hoist the sails, man the helm and make friends with your fellow trainees.

Ports
