Madeira - Cabo verde

 ADVENTURE TO MADEIRA

 

 

 

 

GES-NAUTIC organizes at the end of the summer season, from October to November, crossings of fifteen days, to enjoy a marvelous adventure across the Atlantic sailing full sail, getting to know life aboard a sailboat and participating in all the duties and daily chores aboard, collaborating in a team to achieve our objective and arrive at Madeira – Funchal, also called la Perla del Atlántico, living unique moments.

To enjoy all these experiences we will sail from Los Gigantes – Tenerife, passport in hand, on the 1st of October, leaving the island of Gran Canaria on our starboard and Fuerteventura at our rear port side, on arriving at the North of Fuerteventura in Corralejo we will make our only stop over before we take route at 325º direction Madeira.

At 9hrs on the following day we will leave the port and put Lanzarote on our port side crossing the Atlantic at a speed of 5 or 6 knots approximately to arrive at our destination of 283 nautical miles.

After a day and a half of sailing we perceive on our starboard side the headland of the the island of Bugio and after the big deserted island we find on our bow Madeira,with it's capital Funchal where one hundred thousand people live, there we will rest in the port and visit the city with it's extraordinary culture and the obligatory visits to the Sé (Cathederal) from the XV century and the Quinta das Cruces museum.

Once the boat is restocked with provisions we will head East of the island along the coast, until we arrive at Sta. Cruz and shortly after reach the Calhau Beach where we can cast anchor and visit this part of the island until we arrive at Pto de Sta Maria where we begin our next stage of the return trip to Los Gigantes for day 15.

On these trips it's quiet normal to see dolphines and cetaceas, so it's recomended to take a good camera, to capture these magical moments, the very blue waters near the shore invite the whales to swim very close to land at times.
