Eendracht: Lisbon (PT) - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ES)
17 November - 26 November 2021
Course: Canary Islands! Embark on an exciting journey from mainland Europe to the famous archipelago off the coast of Africa. Spend days out on the open ocean, sailing the Eendracht together with the professional crew. Take watches day and night, learning to steer, handle the sails and navigate. Experience what life at sea does to you. The peace, the dark nights, dolphins next to the ship and the pleasant moments with your fellow trainees while out of the mobile service. Finally, after days of sailing, you will find yourself in a new, exotic, environment. We recommend booking a hotel and spending a few more days to explore Gran Canaria on your own, before catching the plane back to Europe, full of new energy for the upcoming winter! Open to Windseekers aged 15-80.
Lisbon has a long and varied history as a major trading hub, much of which is still visible in the old city centre. Discover Alfama, the old quarters with its many old alleys, steps and the Lisbon Cathedral. The famous tram line 28 will get you there – an experience in and of itself. And be sure to check out a fado concert if you want to learn about saudade – loss, yearning and comfort, all rolled into one. Emotions that all seafarers will get to know one way or the other…
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.
