W08 passage Madeira – Azores (700M).
On our first sailing day we will be heading to the island of Porto Santo. Porto Santo is desert-like and very different from green Madeira. The next morning we prepare for the sailing trip to the Azores, most likely the Island Santa Maria. A sailing passage of 500 miles across the Atlantic Ocean, which will take around 4 days more or less, depending on the wind. An ideal sailing passage for RYA qualifying miles for example.
A real ocean passage with night sailing in a ‘watch system’, lots of time for steering and beautiful sun and moon rises/ sets. With a bit of luck we can enjoy beautiful starry skies and / or a luminous sea and dolphins and hopefully some whales. This sailing voyage is a nice combination of making miles, sailing through the night, but also with a bit of time ashore to enjoy and to recover (according to plan).
We will end this sailing voyage in Praia da Vitoria on the island of Terceira. The last evening we go out for dinner in a nice restaurant to end the sailing trip.
The daily sailing distances are between 42 and 500 miles. The above schedule is subject to weather, wind and tide.

The ‘board cash’ is the amount per person for the food and drink on board (including crew), as well as fuel, water, shore, port fees and taxes, but excluding trips, food and drinks ashore. This amount must be paid upon embarkation in cash to the skipper (in the appropriate currency). What remains after the sailing holiday, will be refunded.
