SAILING-CLASSICS ATLANTIC TRIPS
Portugal & Spanish Atlantic Coast
Lisbon – Cabo Sao Vicente/Sagres – Algarve – Guadalquivir – Cadiz; One-way
In the footsteps of the 'discoverers'
This cruise connects Lisbon (3 days pre-cruise) and Torre de Belem (where caravels from India loaded with pepper and cloves were greeted on their return) via Cabo Sao Vicente – the most south-westerly point in Europe – to the mouth of the Guadalquivir, the 3000 year old port city of Cadiz and the dream city of Seville (3 days after program) with the Alcazar (headquarters of the Admiralty), its Torre D'Oro and the Archivo dos Indias the most important sites of the Portuguese and Spanish explorer history.
But with the spectacular coast of the rocky Algarve, the lagoon of Faro, the river cruise on the Guadalquivir in the largest bird sanctuary in Europe and the Feria in Sanlúcar de Barrameda and of course over 300 nautical miles sailing in the Atlantic Ocean, this sailing trip offers many more highlights.
Cadiz – Cape Trafalgar – Strait of Gibraltar – Ceuta – Gibraltar/La Linea; One-way
On 'Nelson's' tracks
With the 3-day pre-program in the dream city of Seville, the ancient port city of Cadiz, a trip up the Guadalquivir along Europe's largest bird sanctuary, then along the Spanish Atlantic coast and the famous Cape Trafalgar where Nelson struck the French/Spanish fleet in 1805, then along with the enormous ship traffic, the currents and the many whales and dolphins in the Strait of Gibraltar, with Ceuta, the Spanish enclave in Morocco and finally the Rock of Gibraltar itself, this trip combines challenging Atlantic sailing with many other highlights that can actually be experienced from aboard a sailing yacht.
