Voyage Description

On a sailing voyage we never use the word itinerary, as skippers will always be aiming for the best sailing and shore landings for the forecast and most idyllic or sheltered anchors and ports. They are as keen as you to include some of the highlights describe, but you have to go with Mother Nature, not fight her. The description below is based on what we think might be possible, based on past trips, or experience, but nothing is guaranteed on a sailing voyage. If the following voyage description is not fulfilled for any reason, Maybe Sailing and Maybe Sailing Youth Initiative cannot be held responsible.

Your sailing voyage will start in the bustling town of La Coruna and end in Cascais, a port just outside Lisbon.

This 7 day sailing adventure will give you plenty of time to explore the mesmerising coast of Galicia.  You will have the chance to see the colourful small fishing villages hidden at the head of these spectacular Rias.

There are 2 main areas to the Spanish Rias, the Rias Altas in the North and the Rias Bajas in the south. They are separated by Cape Finisterre – a headland with a fierce reputation in bad weather but with hidden beauty.

The Ria de Vigo  ranks among the most sublime natural harbours in the world.  Here you will visit the Atlantic Islands National Park and anchor off the beautiful islands of deserted white sand beaches.

Leaving Spain we’ll set sail from the Ria De Vigo towards Portimao, rounding the Cape of St Vincent and sailing along the Algarve coastline.
