*Trainee placement: only 2 places available* Sailing in the Canary Islands. Board the Twister in Tenerife for a relaxing break. Sail during the day and spend nights anchored in different places. Discover the exotic wildlife of the archipelago, admire different landscapes of each island and sail where the wind takes you! Swim and snorkel, visit national parks, look out for dolphins and whales and make new friends with the small crew. Open to Windseekers aged 17-30 (other ages at request).

Ports

Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands, and a popular tourist destination. One of the largest Carnival festivals is hosted here, and for tourists there is a lot to see and do. But the island is large enough to escape mass tourism, so let its natural beauty seduce you to a hike or a drive around the island. You'll find mountains to climb, cliffs overlooking bays, and ravines. The 'Island of eternal spring' is just what you need if you arrive fresh from your Journey!
