7 days, Blue Clipper
Book this journey
Vigo is a coastal city in Galicia, Spain, close to the Portugese border. Stroll along the charming streets, hidden just behind the busy port; climb up to the castro Fortress for an unforgettable view of the Vigo Bay or take a day trip to the Cíes Islands. Visit O Berbés, a fishing neighborhood, where you can buy the fresh seafood and relax on Playa de Samíl.
Porto, located on the Costa Verde, is Portugal's second-largest city and a busy port town. Porto's long and varied history has left many beautiful old buildings that you can discover by walking around the 'Ribeira' – the old city centre that is a World Heritage site. City walks can be demanding as Porto is built in the coastal hills, but that also means that each corner offers a new, exciting vista! And you can always cool your heels on Porto's rustic terraces and vibrant street side cafés.

"The nicest moment WAS ARRIVING TO CADIZ, WHEN WE SAT ON THE MAST WITH THE ENTIRE TEAM, WEARING OUR TEAM SHIRTS AND SINGING LOUDLY TO LET PEOPLE KNOW WE'RE COMING."
"I have met new people, been up in the mast, seen indescribable sunsets and laughed a lot. Learning how to sail a ship has been the coolest thing I have done so far and I have confidence in what I do now"
"I conquered the fear of climbing up high."

MORGENSTER, 18 September 2014
The long days at sea started to take their toll. My 19-year old fellow Windseekers felt their boots start to boil. Time for some whoopie in the wheelhouse!
