Cape Verde for the Holidays. Exchange the grey winter and loud Christmas season for sailing in the tropics and discovering remote islands! This trip will take you to 6 different islands – if the conditions allow. You will visit popular spots, as well as some very remote places. You will spend most of your days either sailing or visiting, and most of the nights on anchor – though there will be some overnight crossings as well. You will have the chance to join guided excursions for additional fees (approx. € 140 total, depending on the number of participans) and truly explore this remote archipelago off the coast of Africa. Starting and ending the voyage on Sal Island will make it easier to arrange transfers. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.
Sal is one of the three sandy eastern islands of the Cape Verde archipelago, together with Boa Vista and Maio. The island is a dream destination for windsurfing enthusiasts, due to its sandy beaches and persistent winds. Tourism is on the rise in Cape Verde, but outside of the beach resort of Santa Maria the island retains its relaxed feel. Explore the quiet streets with their brightly colored houses, the blue eye cave, and the saline flats. The sun shines 350 days a year, so bring sunscreen!
