W01 Sail training: Portugal – Madeira (600M)
From Lisbon we sail down the Tagus river, past the iconic Torre de Belem to Sesimbra. We sail south with the “Portuguese North”, a fresh wind from our back. In general, this wind sets in from noon and increases in the afternoon until sunset. On our way we can practice with setting sails, gybing and reefing. Depending on the weather we might sail to Sines or directly 455 miles to Porto Santo, which is near to Madeira.
A nice sailing passage in a ‘watch system’ with lots of time for sailing, steering and with beautiful sun and moon rises/ sets. With a bit of luck we can enjoy beautiful starry skies and / or a luminous sea and dolphins. This sailing voyage is a good combination of making miles, sailing through the night, but also with a bit of time ashore to enjoy and to recover, and nice weather (according to plan).
If the weather cooperates we have a day left in Porto Santo, to relax and stretch our legs. Porto Santo is desert-like and very different from the green Madeira. The plan is to make a walk to the spectacular North East cliffs in Madeira, before we end this unforgettable sailing voyage in Funchal, the Capital of Madeira.
The above schedule is subject to weather, wind and tide.
The daily sailing distances are between 28 and 475 miles.
