ZC15: Sailing holidays West Portugal & the Algarve
From the city centre of Lisbon, we sail up the Atlantic Ocean. We’ll sail close past some of Lisbon’s icons, such as the famous ” Torre de Belem”, an ornate fortress from the 16th century that guarded the entrance to the River Tagus. The destination is most likely to become Troia, a peninsula in the delta of Rio Sado. A nice and long day of broad reach sailing with along a beautiful coast. The next day we sail even further south to the port of Sines and from there we sail north again to anchor at the nature park ‘Natural de Arrabida.’ A beautiful green oasis. The next day we can take it easy, a morning swim and/or we can go ashore for a nice walk, before sailing to Sesimbra.
From Sesimbra we sail to Cascais, after rounding Cabo Espichel, it will be clause hauled sailing to the wind, so we have another nice long sailing day ahead, with probably a later arrival (end of the afternoon/ early evening). That’s why we stay in Cascais the next day, which is the seaside resort of Lisbon. Cascais has a beautiful beach and in the evening you can take a sunset stroll to a spectacular viewpoint and enjoy a drink. There is also the opportunity to visit Sintra that day in the wooded hills of the Serra Mountains. Sintra has a fairytale landscape with decorated palaces, castle ruins and exotic gardens.
The last day is a short bit of sailing, back into the centre of Lisbon. In the evening we go out for dinner in a great restaurant and we walk back through the cozy bustling city of Lisbon.
On the west coast of Portugal there is a constant wind from the north, the Nortada, or “Portuguese North”. In general, this wind starts at noon and increases considerably until sunset.
The daily sailing distances are between 14 and 44 miles.
The above schedule is subject to weather, wind and tide.
