Sal (CV) - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ES)

09 November - 16 November 2019

* Last place – contact info@windseeker.org to confirm availability * From Cape Verde to Canary Islands. Join this journey to escape the northern autumn and exchange it for the wind and freedom of sailing! Board Santa Maria Manuela in Cape Verde and set course for the famous Spanish archipelago of Canary Islands. Sail oveer 1000 nautical miles on the ocean (under sails and possibly also on the motor), look out for dolphins and whales, watch the stars and enjoy the blue water surrounding you, without the pollution of cars, noise and light. Step off board energized and full of great new stories to share with your friends back home! Open to Windseekers of 15 years and older.

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!

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is a cosmopolitan town, the shared capital (with Santa Cruz) of the Canary Islands. Situated on the ‘wet’ north side, the city feels more authentic than the touristy places on the ‘dry’ south side. Las Palmas offers beaches, cheap shopping, culture and excitement with a night life, primarily in the district of Vegueta. Its culture is decidedly Spanish, mixed with influences from all over the world, as Las Palmas’ port has been in operation for centuries.
