Eye of the Wind:
La Gomera (ES) - Santa Cruz de Tenerife (ES)

11 February - 18 February 2017

Explore beautiful La Gomera before setting sail for the lively city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Enjoy the perfect sailing conditions and beautiful sunshine. Take walks along the beach and swims in beautiful blue ocean and get to know the culture of Canary Islands. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

La Gomera is one of the 7 main islands in the Spanish Canary Islands archipelago on the Atlantic Ocean. Try the local wine with some tapas, listen to the local “whistle speach” and go exploring the rainforest. Visit the etnographic museum, go hiking in the
Garajonay National Park and Bosque del Cedro, hang out on the beach or take a dolphin- and whalewatching tour.

Santa Cruz de Tenerife is the shared capital of the Canary Islands, together with Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The central square Plaza de España is a real eye-catcher, situated between the ocean and the old, bustling city centre. Lose yourself in the crowded alleys, find a spot on one of the terraces, or leave town and discover the rugged volcanic landscape. The museum of Nature and Man is worth a visit. Chances are you’ll find pilot whales in the waters around Tenerife, so keep an eye out!
