Sal (CV) - Sal (CV)

16 February - 27 February 2020

Discover Cape Verde from the board of a Dutch Tall Ship Oosterschelde. You will start and end your adventure on the island of Sal and discover several other islands in between. This relaxing winter journey will bring you to the land of sun, beautiful landscapes and exotic wildlife. The days will be spent sailing or visiting, while most of the nights you will sleep on anchor, with some overnight passages. This trip is a perfect mix of sailing and sightseeing for those who wish to combine the most adventures into a single trip. You can explore the islands on your own, or join one or all of the organised excursions with local guides 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!
