Oosterschelde:
Sal (CV) - Sal (CV)

02 January - 13 January 2020

January in Cape Verde. Board the Oosterschelde in Sal for a round-trip in the amazing archipelago off the coast of Africa. Escape the northern winter and give yourself an adventure as a New Year gift! Visit 6 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 computer 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. € 140 in total, depending on the number of participants). Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

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!
