Gibraltar – Tenerife
We leave the summer in the Mediterranean to sail into the eternal summer of the Canary Islands. After exploring Malaga, we start directly to one of the highlights of this tour: Gibraltar. Here, the huge bay of Algeciras with its endless number of cargo ships, the famous Monkey Rock, and the huge luxury yachts are waiting for you. After we have looked at everything in peace and our supplies are finally filled up, we cast off and start with a direct course to the Canary Islands. After about an hour, we are in the Strait of Gibraltar and can see not only Tarifa and Tangier but also a multitude of gigantic container ships, which cross this strait as if pulled on a string. A great experience!
With mostly constant northeast trade wind, we are then steadily moving south. First, we reach Lanzarote after a few days. Here we go ashore and get inspired by the volcanic landscape. A bit further south follows a stay on the sandy island of Fuerteventura. Endless sandy beaches and a landscape reminiscent of the Sahara await us.
Before we reach our final destination, we will make a stop in Gran Canaria and explore the impressive dune landscape in the south. Our destination port, “Marina del Sur,” in the south of the largest Canary Island, Tenerife, is now only one day’s journey away. The national park “Teide” and the versatility of this island make a stay of several days recommendable.
This trip is especially suitable for those who would like to gain some offshore experience and many nautical miles.
