Since we spend the night a lot in ports, we will internalize you all the process when entering a port. This means the correct preparation, contacting the harbor master (via radio), prepare crew and ship, side docking, putting on the box, etc. We practice with you how to optimally adapt the sail surface to the available wind and weather conditions to keep the ship in „balance“.


In the right conditions, sometimes we will also take off at 04:00 in the morning, so you can enjoy being on the sea at night and experiencing the sunrise under sail.

Since the north to northeast passing, usually comes in the Canary Islands, there may be a longer blow. If the wind is too strong, the route must be adjusted or postponed for 1-2 days in order to get from island to island.

Depending on the wind and weather, the route and nautical miles may differ slightly.
