O Grove (ES) - Muros (ES)

04 May - 11 May 2019

Bilingual journey with lots of activities! Divide your week into sailing between charming destinations and enjoying the places you visit. The crossings on this trip will take about 1,5 day each, and on land you can expect such attractions as canyoning around the natural rock pools, hiking tour and tasting of local cuisine. But don’t worry – Sail Training is still first on our minds and you will be able to enjoy spending time out on the sea. All described activities are included in the journey price. A complimentary shuttle can be arranged to bring you on board from Santiago de Compostela airport. This voyage is in English and Spanish – it’s okay to only speak one of those languages to feel at home on board. Open to all Windseekers, minumum age 15 years.
