Blue Water Cruise - Galicia to Canaries
Starting in Villagarcia in the Rias Bajas region of north-west Spain, this 14 day blue water sailing cruise makes use of the prevailing north-easterly trade winds to provide what is often a totally downwind, sun chasing sail to the Canaries.
Fast passage times often allow for few days in Madeira or the Canary Islands. Taking just 14 days this cruise is ideal for those with limited time to participate in a trans ocean passage. Qualified Offshore Yachtmasters may use the non-stop leg of this long distance cruise as a qualifying ocean passage. Full details of the requirements for this can be found in the RYA G158 log book.
