Canary Islands for New Year. Start 2021 right, by joining the Eendracht for a sailing adventure in a great climate. Discover the best-kept secret places of the archipelago. Board the ship in Las Palmas for a round trip. After throwing the moorings you will leave Gran Canaria behind and take course for the most beautiful places. Active sailing will be interspersed with excursions on different islands, making it a great trip for true adventurers. Extend your stay on board by a full day for additional €60 and spend the time exploring Las Palmas before going back home filled with energy for the upcoming winter months. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.
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.
