Adventure offered by Carlos y Aroa

10 days
Available in English
Contact
This plan includes a high altitude crossing of about 300 nautical miles, in which we will cross from the island of Lanzarote to Madeira.

It is a crossing through the waters of the Atlantic Ocean that can last about 3 days / 2 nights of continuous navigation, in which watches are carried out among the crew. You actively participate, getting involved in the navigation plan, review of the weather, sailing, safety, night navigation, and planning of the entire navigation.

Within the days that you are on board, we will cross the days when we have a more favorable forecast and the other days, we will dedicate them to sailing along the coast of Lanzarote or Madeira and getting to know these islands.

  • Plan
    This is an example of a program that will depend on the final weather forecast that we have during those days:

    Day 1. Boarding day. We will study the weather to define the navigation plan for the following days.
    Day 2. Navigation along the coast of Lanzarote.
    Day 3 - 5. High altitude navigation from Lanzarote to Madeira.
    Day 6. Day to rest at the anchorage / port where we are. We can look for some anchorage in the south of the island of Madeira, such as Caniçao or visit the Desertas Islands.
    Day 7. Coastal navigation through Madeira to the cliffs of the Sao Lorenço Lighthouse. You can take an excursion to the lighthouse.
    Day 8. Coastal navigation to the port of Funchal.
    Day 9. Day to visit the island of Maderia by land.
    Day 10. Disembarkation day in Funchal.

    It has been a great experience with Aroa and Carlos. We have had a great week of sailing, very complete. The food is very good on board the Drakar. Good hosts, good sailors and they are very detailed with the cleanliness on board. There was a very good atmosphere with the crewmates. I would love to repeat

    Having just arrived from the trip, it has exceeded my expectations, Aroa and Carlos have organized it perfectly, they have made us all feel very comfortable, I have learned a lot during these days. A ten for them, and for the boat, very good conditions accompanied us to the destination. I will surely repeat with them.

    It has been a unique experience, we have learned about navigation and visited incredible places that you can only access by boat. An alternative and active vacation to get to know other places and cultures, avoiding tourist sites. The boat was spotless and very comfortable to live in. Aroa and Carlos are very nice, I will repeat
