Sailing voyage Z04-22: Island hopping central & southern Azores

Sailing holidays Z04-22 Island hopping central & Southern Azores.

From, the by sailors, world-famous harbour Horta on the island Faial, we start island-hopping around the central Azores. On the programme are the islands Sao Jorge, Graciosa and Terceira. The wind will determine the order. The plan is to spend a day on one of the islands to explore the island.

One possibility is Angra do Heroismo on Terceira, which served as a stop-over on the shipping route between Europe and America. Its ancient history and heritage have made this historic town a World Heritage Site. Options are a forest walk in the ‘Reserva Florestal de Recreio da Lagoa das Patas’ and/or the volcano caves of ‘Gruta do Natal’.

From Terceira it is 92 nautical miles sailing to Sao Miguel, one of the southern islands of the Azores. This long distance means that we have to sail through the night. With a bit of luck we will see dolphins or even whales along the way and a beautiful sunset and/or rise. Depending on the wind, we will arrive early next morning which leaves us some time for some sightseeing, like the Miradouro do Pico da Barrosa, for example. A volcanic mountain lake with a beautiful view.

The last sailing day is short, but the plan is to anchor at Ilhéu de Vila Franca do Camp. A kind of mini volcano with a perfect circular swimming place in the middle, a real mini paradise with a lovely cliff walk as well. We will end the sailing trip in Ponta Delgada on Sao Miguel.

The daily distances vary, depending on weather and tide, between 13 and 92 miles. The above schedule depends on weather, wind and tide, if necessary we can change destinations.

Land excursions are not included in the price and are of course not mandatory.
