Sailing skills appreciated
We meet on the 19th of September onboard Montana in the Alcaidesa Marina, La Linea, which is located next to the border of Gibraltar.
After the obligatory visit of “The Rock” of Gibraltar, we prepare to sail through the Strait of Gibraltar. With good winds, we are heading directly to Madeira.
Otherwise, we have an additional stop in Barbate. There we are already through the Strait of Gibraltar and we can choose our time of departure independently from the tide.
Depending on how early we are, we can make the first stop at Puerto Santo, a nice little island with a beautiful beach. Our further routing is 30 miles to Madeira, the island of flowers. We will moor in Quinta do Lorde, a tidy marina with associated hotel and perfectly located for a hike to Cap Sao Lourenco. Also, a trip to the capital Funchal is possible.
From Madeira, we are heading for Santa Cruiz on Tenerife. Thereafter we sail to La Palmas on Gran Canaria, the “capital of the ARC”.
