Blue water sailing at its best

Cape Verde

Explore the islands of Cape Verde with one of our Senior Yachtmaster Instructors, Danny or Ales, on a very spacious Benneteau 50. If you need more to tempt you, then why not practice celestial navigation?!

Cape Verde is real blue water sailing, boasting an eternal summer, beautiful beaches, trade winds, and, without hordes of tourists, this is a destination for real adventurers. We will be leaving from Palmeira on Sal and over seven days we will be sailing around the archipelago, where almost every island has its own unique scenery and microclimate, dolphins and sharks are common, and turtles are breeding. We will visit tranquil anchorages and little fishing harbours. You will get a true taste of Africa and its colourful history. We will take in the deserts of Sal, the dramatic landscape on Fogo, including the 9000ft volcano, and, in contrast, the lush vegetation of Santo Antao. You will truly experience a sailing holiday of a lifetime.

There are flights to Sal from various airports in the UK, with return prices starting from around £250, and Palmeira is just a short taxi ride from Sal airport. Cape Verde is one of the safest destinations in Africa, with reasonable access to healthcare and emergency services. Cape Verdeans rank at the top for happiness and safety on the African continent. This trip is not for beginners and you are advised to have proper travel insurance for the area and ask your GP for healthcare advice.

As with all our sailing trips, we can advise on transport to and from Cape Verde based on our previous experience. Cape Verde is accessibile from the main UK airports. You will be sailing with real professionals who have years of experience of sailing in various locations around the world. If you fancy something different and meeting new people in a sunny climate, then this is for you.  As with any sailing adventure, we will go at the pace of the crew. We have an excellent track record, however your safety is most important to us, and if the weather decides to be against us we will amend the route accordingly to ensure that you have a great trip.
