Then you will hop on to La Reunion and take the time to discover Madagascar: a big island-state well known for it’s incredible biodiversity. No sailing experience required. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 18 years.

Ports

Bali is one of Indonesian islands and a major tourist destination due to its beautiful landscapes, aboundant wildlife and numerous historical sites. Visit majestic waterfalls, the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary or the former royal palace of Tirtagangga before realxing on a beach. If you’re looking for adventure, Bali has a lot of exciting activities to offer, including canyoning, riding quads, biking and climbing the active volcano of Mount Batur at sunrise!

Cape Town, close to Cape of Good Hope, is a wonderful place where African and European cultures mix and match in interesting ways. The city offers lots of entertainment and fine cuisine, and there is much to see! Visit the Table Mountain, saunter along the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, check out Robben Island where Nelson Mandela used to be imprisoned, and of course no Windseeker’s visit is complete without a trip to Cape Point. If you have time, a drive along the coast is highly recommended!

    When I found out that you could still sail traditional ships I remember thinking: a) this is probably a joke, and b) why have I not done it yet? I had experience sailing on yachts and dinghies but with an interest in naval …
