Oosterschelde:
Palmeira (CV) - Palmeira (CV)

29 January - 09 February 2021

Sail the Oosterschelde in Cape Verde archipelago. It’s another winter that the Ship will spend in Cape Verde, whose hospitality and beauty encourage the Oosterschelde to come back year after year. Step on board on the island of Sal, where you will also disembark after your trip. In the meantime you will visit at least 6 other islands – conditions permitting – from the most popular to very remote. Most days you will either sail or visit, while most nights will be spent on anchor. Take a break from winter and spend 11 days in the tropics, sailing and exploring exotic places. You can choose to visit the islands on your own or join organised excursions for additional fees (approx. € 150 in total, depending on the number of participants). Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years. IMPORTANT: Due to coronavirus the maximum number of people on board has to be reduced. You can only share a cabin with a family member, and never with a stranger. Are you traveling alone? In this case, you’ll have to book a single cabin.

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.
