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.

Join us as we sail South for the winter, in search of warmer weather. We make the 1000 NM journey from Las Palmas – Cape Verde, enjoying star filled nights and sun soaked horizons. Help hoist the sails, take the wheel and learn about traditional navigation methods. Or, sit back, relax and take in the sea air on this adventure south.

At the end of the voyage stay on board the ship and have 4 days to explore Cape Verde and all it has to offer.

Jutting up from the Atlantic, some 500km west of Senegal, this stunning chain of Islands has a captivating blend of mountains, beaches and peaceful seaside villages. On Santo Antao, craggy peaks hide piercing green valleys of flowers and sugar cane, ideal for epic hikes. Sao Vicente is home to the cultural capital of the islands, Mindelo, which throbs with bars and music clubs. On Sal and Maio, undulating windswept dunes merge with indigo-blue seas on unspoilt beaches of powdery white sand. Meanwhile, far-flung Fogo and Brava in the Southwest offer their own enchantments, from surreal volcanic landscapes, to sparkling bays framed by towering peaks. Throw in the constant beat of music that Cape Verde is famed for and the renowned Morabeza (Creole for hospitality) of its people and you’ll soon see why many have come – and never left.
