Have you always dreamt of celebrating Christmas and New Year in a unique location in the sun? Sail along with the Eendracht during the holidays! No snowmen, but island hopping! We will visit several ports during this trip. You will enter the Eendracht in Las Palmas at Cran Canaria and will visit some islands in the area. You will participate actively in our watch system of 4 hours on and 8 ours off. Of course, we recommend to combine this trip with a perfect beach holiday before or after the trip. So have your snorkel, swimsuit and sunglasses ready! In Las Palmas, the sun shines! This sailing voyage is from the age of 12. Untill the age of 15, youngsters have to be accompanied by an adult.

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.
