Kapitan Borchardt:
Santa Cruz de Tenerife (ES) - Porto Santo (PT) - Władysławowo (PL)

07 March - 07 April 2016

Miles Maker – Month voyage – Sail along on this beautiful classic sailing ship along the Canaries and via Porto Santo to Kiel! You will start in warm waters, and perhaps with a stop somewhere we have not been before. Sailing, swimming, roundtour at one of the iles with nice Spanish food and fruits, dolphins and icecream. Each day will be different. Porto Santo will be a Portugees iland, northeast of Madeira. There will be nice beaches and beautiful views. Afterwards you will cross the North Sea, cross the special Kielercanal and end up in Kiel. Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

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!
