Gran Canarias Winter Adventure Cruise
Do something different this winter and experience offshore cruising at its best!
This winter, departing in December 2017, we will be offering places on El Rubicon, for various legs on our adventure cruise from Ayamonte, Spain to Lanzarote in the Gran Canarias. This would be a fantastic opportunity to carry out:
- Milebuilding (for the RYA Yachtmaster qualification)
- Skills Development (all levels)
- Enjoyable and releaxed sailing in warm winter sun
A true adventure in itself but this is just the beginning. If you can’t join us for that leg or fancy something a little more relaxed why not join one of our Island routes and explore these incredible volcanic Islands. For more information about the Canary Isands, click here to read the December article published on Yachting monthly on the Canary Islands.
We plan to mix marinas and anchorages allowing us to experience both the vibrant and quieter parts of Island life.
RYA certification will unfortunately not be available during this adventure and we can take a maximum of 2 couples or 3 individuals.
We will be offering a combination of 7 and 12 day trips priced at 600€ p.p (7 days*) and 925€ (12 days), initial interest is high so please contact Debbie to secure your place.
Please note: All itineraries are subject to weather!
