Las Palmas
This stage is dedicated to combining Madeira, Canaries, and an offshore passage in one trip.
First, we xplore Madeira and maybe small rocky islands nearby, and then cross an ocean for couple of days to Canaries. Our destination is Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, but the exact route is uncertain. Most probably, we start from the east, through islands of Graciosa and Lanzarote

Travel Style:
This stage contains a 2-days offshore ocean passage, and numerous smaller passages, with exploring both marinas and nature around them.
of this stage
is 4 out of 5
That means: be prepared for more challenges than in a standard yacht charter. Waves, wind, rain, night passages, some offshore — all this might happen. But still not too much.

Talking about this exact stage, the most challenging should be the 2-days offshore passage from Madeira group to the Canaries. It might be wavy, and needs you to be active part of the crew on watches. Nothing extreme though, ‘cause trade winds weather is usually very well predicted.
and nearby islands:
Depending on the start date of the crossing, we’ll have more
(or less) time to see the shores of the new archipelago:
two marinas, one big and famous island, and two smaller ones. Weather and autorities allowed, we may also land with a dinghy on a very small nature reserve island, Deserta Grande.
Offshore passage to the Canaries:
250 nm of the open ocean will probably find us all the way
on a port tack of the trade winds. As always, we’ll choose
the best weather window to pass it gracefully on sails.
The second largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, Fuetreventura
is celebrated for its stunning beaches, which stretch for miles along the Atlantic Ocean, and is a haven for water sports enthusiasts, offering ideal conditions for surfing, windsurfing, and kiteboarding. The island’s interior, with its arid, desert-like landscape, contrasts with the lush coastal areas. Charming old town of Betancuria, various local festivals, and many more to see.
The island is renowned for its unique volcanic landscape,
which was shaped by eruptions in the 18th and 19th centuries. The island’s rugged terrain, featuring stark lava fields
and striking rock formations, contrasts beautifully with its pristine beaches and crystal-clear waters. Notable attractions include Timanfaya National Park, known for its otherworldly scenery and geothermal activity.
Las Palmas
de Gran Canaria:
November here is a time and place to see numerous and various boats preparing for the Transatlantic and curcumnavigations
in tropical regions. Our boat hits a lot different routes, but it’s still very interesting to come to the center of ocean yachting
in the right season.
