ITINERARY

We will leave Faro and travel South-East towards Barbate crossing the Golf of Cadiz. In Spanish territory we can visit Cadiz either to indulge with the city’s fantastic tapas or to wonder around one of the oldest towns in the western Europe.Another option to stop is Barbate. This village has a long history of fishing – the tuna Capital! Maybe you´ll have a chance to get a tuna while passing by…

As a stop over the town has an attractive central square “Plaza de la Inmaculada” that gathers the “movida” in the small settlement and a great protected marina (nice showers) that will surely provide a good night sleep.

Arriving Gibraltar you will feel the peace of entering a picturesque remote location, an ironic feeling though, considering that the passage will be a heartbeat raising experience with big ships crossing grey, windy and sometimes turbulent seas. We like to stay on the Spanish side – La Linea. Tapas are closer from Alcaidesa Marina.

The passage to Ceuta is short but challenging. Crossing the Strait is unique. Ceuta and / or Tanger will be options when crossing the Strait

On the sail back to Olhão we´ll do a night passage. This mile building covers approximately 300 miles.

 

Our trip will be tailored according weather forecast, nevertheless we can introduce you to some of most desirable options.

You should be able to take a night watch, learn how to work with AIS, radar, plotter and chart work.
