Morgenster:
Madeira (PT) - Cadiz (ES)

15 February - 23 February 2020

Back to Europe! Join the crew of Morgenster in Madeira and sail 500 nautical miles on the Atlantic towards southern Spain. Enjoy spending the days on board a Tall Ship, dictated by sea watches and mealtimes. No phone, no internet. Make new sailing friends, learn about sailing on a 100-years old ship, climb the mast for a breathtaking view and let yourself forget your daily worries. Open to all Windseekers aged 15 and over.

Ports

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.
