Morgenster:
Santa Cruz de Tenerife (ES) - Dakar (SN)

20 October - 27 October 2018

Sailing to Africa. In this late October voyage you will visit two beautiful places, separated by the waters of Atlantic Ocean. Embark the Morgenster in Tenerife, one the famous Canary Islands. Enjoy the nature and the sights of this famous archipelago before setting course south. You will make your way along the west coast of Africa, steering towards the capital of Senegal. Stepping off board after an exciting journey perhaps you will want to book a hotel in Dakar and spend a few more days visiting before flying back home – just in time for Halloween! Open for all Windseekers, 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!

Dakar is the capital city of Senegal. The city has over 1 million inhabitants and its history dates back to the 15th century. If you want an educational experience visit the Maison des Esclaves. The African Renaissance Monument stands 52m tall and will give you a great view of the city while in the nearby lighthouse you can see the 150 year old equipment, still in use. Dakar has been listed by Lonely Planet as one of the top 10 cities to visit in 2019 - so what are you waiting for?
