GIBRALTAR TO CANARIES
Global Yacht Training is pleased to offer you yachtmaster passage sailing from Gibraltar, the gateway to the Mediterranean, to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in the Atlantic. Although, this trip could be used as part of your Yachtmaster training it is also available as an adventure sail and how much training you wish to obtain whilst with us is entirely up to you.
On route you will sail accross the Straighs of Gibraltar and down the African Coast before crossing over to the beautiful Canary Islands. Once there you will island hop, visiting numerous ports and anchorages and sampling the fantastic Spanish atmosphere of these stunning Atlantic volcanos islands. You will gain around 1,000 nautical miles and passage experience as well as the chance to act as ‘skipper’ on passages and gain watch-keeping skills. You could use this trip towards qualifying for your RYA Yachtmaster.
