As a point of interest, UNESCO declared Menorca Reserve of the Biosphere in 1993, due to its environmental variety and its natural values.
We will sail from the base port and spend the night sailing after having installed ourselves in the cabins and communicating the importance of safety at sea and coexistence on board.
