Santa Maria Manuela:
Sao Miguel (PT) - Sunderland (GB)

25 June - 10 July 2018

* Places at request * Atlantic journey from the Azores to Great Britain. Board the Portuguese schooner Santa Maria Manuela in the remote archipelago of Azores in the Atlantic and sail north-east towards England. Spend over 2 weeks on board and make approximately 1000 nautica miles! This is a perfect voyage for anyone wishing to gain sailing experience and gather the missing miles for their logbooks. You will sail to reach your destination, and not to sightsee, just like the old-time sailors used to do! Open to Windseekers of 15 years and older; younger at request (accompanied by an adult). VAT not included in the price.

Ports

Sao Miguel in the Azores is also known as The Green Island – and for a good reason! If you love nature, hiking and taking in beautiful vistas, this is the place to visit. You can rent quads and go canyoning. There are also interesting museums and research places dedicated to the volcanic nature of the islands – visit them and you will almost certainly learn something new.

Sunderland is a coastal city in North East England, aging back to the 7th century. Whether you’re a nature or a culture lover, you will surely find a bunch of nice activities to do! For instance, have a lovely day out with fish&chips for lunch at the Roker & Seaburn Beaches or take a relaxing walk in Herrington Country Park. Also, go on a trip to the picturesque Penshaw Monument. Discover the Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens.
