Sailing and exploring – this voyage will bring you to different islands of the remote Cape Verde archipelago on the Atlantic Ocean. You will spend the warm, sunny days sailing or exploring these fascinating islands, and nights on anchor. Enjoy your trip to another world, where the descendants of people from Africa, Portugal, France and Italy have created a unique culture. Watch out for fly-fish, tunas, sea turtles and even whales, while the Trade winds will bring you from one volcanic island to another. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Sal is one of the three sandy eastern islands of the Cape Verde archipelago, together with Boa Vista and Maio. The island is a dream destination for windsurfing enthusiasts, due to its sandy beaches and persistent winds. Tourism is on the rise in Cape Verde, but outside of the beach resort of Santa Maria the island retains its relaxed feel. Explore the quiet streets with their brightly colored houses, the blue eye cave, and the saline flats. The sun shines 350 days a year, so bring sunscreen!
