Palmeira (CV) - Palmeira (CV)

14 January - 25 January 2021

* Places at request * Exploring Cape Verde. Board Tall Ship Oosterschelde on Sal Island for a round-trip in the archipelago off the coast of Africa. Forget about cold winter and take a sailing break. Sail between several different islands, from the most popular ones to the very remote. Learn to sail a Tall Ship, admire exotic wildlife, see beautiful landscapes and enjoy the digital detox. The days will be spent sailing or visiting, and most nights the ship will be anchored – with some exceptions for overnights crossings. You can choose to explore the islands on your own, or join the organised excursions for additional fee (approx. € 150 in total, depending on the number of participants). Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Palmeira is the third-largest town in Cape Verde, situated on the island of Sal, yet still has a small, village atmosphere. When you land in Palmeira you will have just completed an Atlantic Crossing, or at least a hefty 2700km sail south from Europe. Whilst resting in Palmeira, visit some bars and restaurants, or explore further to desert Oases, caves and beaches.
