Once again the Oosterschelde spends winter in Cape Verde archipelago, off the coast of Africa. Join her on this exploration of about 6 islands – weather and wind permitting. You will spend your days on board, sailing from one destination to another, or visiting. Most of the nights the Oosterschelde will be anchored, but sometimes you can expect an overnight crossing. Enjoy the warm weather, beautiful landscapes, exotic culture and great wildlife, and re-charge your batteries for the wait for spring. You can choose to explore on your own, or join the organised excursions for additional fee (approx. € 140 in total, depending on the number of participants). 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!
