23 December 2017 - 03 January 2018

Sailing Holidays during Christmas and Newyear! While there’s nothing wrong in celebrating Christmas the traditional way, some of us just weren’t made to wear those reindeer sweaters. Why not exchange it for shorts and sunglasses then? Board the Eendracht on the 23rd of December in Gran Canaria and forget all about the rush of the Christmas season. Make this time for yourself and relax while traveling in one of the best sailing regions in the world. Exchange white Christmas for white sand on the beach and enjoy the beautiful weather of the Canary Islands. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years. Windseekers between 12-15 years welcome if accompanied by an adult.You’ll be sleeping in 4 person cabins. Places in double cabins available for a surcharge of 19,50 euro p.p. per night.

Ports

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is a cosmopolitan town, the shared capital (with Santa Cruz) of the Canary Islands. Situated on the ‘wet’ north side, the city feels more authentic than the touristy places on the ‘dry’ south side. Las Palmas offers beaches, cheap shopping, culture and excitement with a night life, primarily in the district of Vegueta. Its culture is decidedly Spanish, mixed with influences from all over the world, as Las Palmas’ port has been in operation for centuries.
