Sail Madeira to Morocco on a two week sailing, training and exploring adventure.
Join this small team to sail Madeira to Morocco on a fantastic two week adventure. Get ready for some sailing, training and exploring from the Portuguese island of Madeira all the way to North Africa, along Europe’s most southern shore.
Starting on the south eastern shores of Madeira, you will do some training, skills and drills, as well as some exploring of the southern shores of Madeira, and maybe even the island of Porto Santo and the stunning Islas de Deserthas. It wasn’t until about 5 million years ago, when volcanic explosions occurred in the western part of the Atlantic Ocean, that Madeira came into existence; and now sitting in the middle of the Atlantic, Madeira is a place of glorious natural beauty and history.
Heading out from the most westerly point of the island, you will sail into the open ocean for 600nm of exhilarating open ocean sailing all the way to the Moroccan port of Tangier. Take some time to practise your sailing skills and enjoy some quiet away from land and technology! Fingers crossed you will catch sight of some wildlife too.
Once you reach Tangier, you will have some time to explore the bustling souks and medina of this fascinating north African city; before sailing on to the rocky town of Gibraltar. If you’re looking to pack in as much culture and sailing into one trip as possible, then this sail Madeira to Morocco trip is for you.
