Eye of the Wind:
Lanzarote (ES) - Cadiz (ES)

11 March - 22 March 2017

Leave behind the volcanic landscape of Canary Islands and set course for Europe. Enjoy the Atlantic Ocean journey to your destination in Cadiz, Spain. This tour is discounted, because you’ll be sailing day and night at some point and won’t have that many stops in port, so if you’re looking for the maximum sailing time, this is the journey for you! Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Lanzarote is one of 7 main islands in the Spanish Canary Islands Archipelago on the Atlantic Ocean. It is often referred to as a "volcano island". For the evidence of ongoing volcanic activity visit the Timanfaya National Park and Cueva de los Verdes. Go swimming, snorkelling or windsurfing in the blue waters or relax on the beach, or visit the cactus garden. You can also take a stroll through one of the small towns and try the local wine.

The oldest city in Spain, with a wealth of historic landmarks. Water is never far away, as the old town is built on a narrow stretch of land jutting out into the Mediterranean Sea. Get lost in the Old town with its many narrow, winding streets and visit one of the many parks that dot the city. Its many cathedrals and plazas are also well worth a visit. Go to La Caleta beach, at La Viña, the old fisherman quarter. Go catch a Flamenco concert and feast your taste buds with the fresh sea foods.
