Sail your way through history as you explore the Gulf of Cadiz and land in one of the most ancient cities in Europe

4 Nights Various: 09 - 13 August 2021

€1,100 / £1,010 per person

If you’ve ever dreamt of weaving your way into spectacular historic sailing grounds and sailing the Gulf of Cadiz arriving one of the most ancient cities in Europe, then you will love this sailing adventure.

The seaside villages of the Cadiz province are synonymous with bluefin tuna, with a long history of fishing this majestic fish and intriguing ways to celebrate their catch. The history stretches all the way back to 800BC when the city of Cadiz was founded and introduced the traditional method of fishing known as the almadraba. This was later adopted by the Romans and continues to this day during the tuna season from April to June.

As you sail along this beautiful stretch of shoreline, you'll learn the techniques used by many before you and the history which makes this area so remarkable.

Day 1 – Arriving and setting sail

Arriving at the boat in Olhão Marina for a 0930 brief, it’s straight into preparing to set sail. You’ll be fully involved in passage planning and provisioning in local markets for your 5-day adventure. Planning done, it’s time to head for Vila Real St Antonio or Rota.

Day 2 – Sailing on

Another early start, and we’ll sail for either Rota or Cadiz, giving enough time to explore the vibrant life ashore.

Day 3-4 – Exploring on land and by sea

Taking advantage of the prevalent night northerly winds and land breezes, we’ll hop our way back toward Faro, stopping at either El Rompido or Vila Real St António on the way.

Day 5

Later in the day, we’ll arrive back in Faro to finish our adventure, disembarking at around 1630.
