If the Atlantic Crossing is the one that has the most appeal, the route out of the Mediterranean (from Malaga to the Canary Islands, approximately 750 nautical miles, including a stop in Morocco) is equally rich in experiences that can be had under sail.

Indeed, this route is often more demanding from a navigation point of view (e.g. the passage over the Strait of Gibraltar), useful and ideal for getting an idea and experiencing what life in the ocean is like before deciding on a longer commitment such as the real Ocean Crossing.

  • Plan
    Once you leave Malaga, in about 10/12 hours of navigation in which to begin to become familiar with the boat and the maneuvers, you reach Gibraltar. Here, you can disembark for a small tour to discover the famous fortress and its mischievous monkeys who seem to act as its guardians. The stage is obligatory as the last supply on European soil of both water and fuel and food, before the great leap towards the Ocean.

    Once departed from Gibraltar, the first real shifts on board begin, aimed at making the passage of the strait and the so-called Pillars of Hercules.

    Spain on the starboard, Africa on the left, the fortress, the emotions of mythological and historical tales: passing Gibraltar is always fascinating.

    Once past the Strait of Gibraltar, you come across the Tarifa lighthouse on your starboard side and enter the ocean: at these latitudes navigation can start to be challenging, with weather conditions that can change unexpectedly compared to forecasts, due to possible disturbances present in the North Atlantic.

    If Aeolus is benevolent we encounter the Portuguese trade wind, a northerly wind that immediately allows us to try real ocean navigation

    The first stop will be in Rabat, where we will register on Moroccan soil (passport required). Rabat (capital of Morocco) is a beautiful town where you can breathe the air of the most traditional Morocco. Depending on the weather, there will be time to take a tour of the city's Medina, to discover the fabric, spice and leather merchants and to dine in one of the typical restaurants.

    Once back on board, the route southwards and towards Lanzarote (approximately 450 NM) will begin from Rabat, with a possible intermediate stop in Agadir or other ports, if navigation requires it.

    The first of the Canary Islands to stand out on the horizon is La Graciosa, a small and very wild island, perfect for gradually reconnecting with civilization after days of sailing in contact with oneself and with marine nature.

    We are now facing the north coast of Lanzarote: after a coastal navigation of the island from the north, we will reach the marina located in the southern part of the island where disembarkation is expected (the defined location will obviously be communicated before departure).

    Please note: the program being ITINERANT and OCEAN may be subject to variations in the event of unsuitable weather and sea conditions, at the sole discretion of the instructor commander.

Boat details

Our Sun Odyssey 51 of 15.50 meters, built in the Jeanneau Shipyards. The model of this sailboat is specially made to provide maximum comfort during long stays on board, thanks to the large spaces both indoors and outdoors, without however compromising on performance, giving the maximum during long voyages (such as oceanic ones. Full Moon is therefore a modern, comfortable and fast sailing boat, indicated on the market as an above average model in terms of comfort and safety among standard sailboats.

The boat is equipped with every comfort, tools and equipment to make your stay welcoming and make you live the experience of living in contact with marine wonders in a unique way.
When you are "tired and bored" of swimming in the blue-green Caribbean waters, you can rest or read lulled by the waves, or equip yourself with a fishing rod, steer or photograph, until you enjoy cooking in the dinette.

Here's what you'll find on board:

FOUR DOUBLE CABINS
Ours is a particularly habitable sailboat: it has four guest cabins, each with private bathroom, and one reserved for the crew.
All cabins have double beds, stowage lockers and private shower rooms.

DINETTE AND INTERIORS
The dinette is developed on both sides of the interior of the boat, thanks to the optimal organization of the spaces which, once down the stairs, allow central access completely free from clutter.
Next to the stairs, there is the chart table, complete with the instruments and accessories for navigation: this is the & quot; control cabin & quot ;, to always be left free for the Captain and the area & quot; off limits & quot; for guests on board.
Immediately afterwards, again on the right side, a comfortable U-shaped corner develops, excellent for allowing access and use of the compartment even during navigation. The kitchen area is complete with stove and oven, two cockpit fridges, microwave oven and doors with all the necessary for cooking and setting, from breakfast to lunch, to aperitif and dinner: dishes, pots and casseroles, glasses, cups, containers and much more.
The left side of the dinette comfortably accommodates ten people seated and doors for storing food.

THE EXTERIORS
The cockpit is large and designed in such a way as to make the moments spent reading, resting and looking at the sea or having lunch and dinner in the harbor, losing one's gaze in the blue of the sky and the sea, to the fullest. The comfortable canopy and awning protect the stop in the cockpit even in the hottest hours.
The spaces on deck are wide, comfortable and safe for movement. The stern beach is large and equipped with a retractable floor ladder, to go down comfortably into the sea and enjoy the space coming up from the sea, thanks to the comfortable shower equipped with fresh water.
The large space in the bow, entirely covered in teak, is large and comfortable, allowing you to enjoy relaxation and sunbathing areas for both groups and "moments alone".
The two rudder wheels, placed laterally in the stern, allow easy movements both for guests residing in the cockpit and for the Captain who must move from the stern to the cockpit to control the navigation, combining the use of the winches that govern the sails so much from upwind than from downwind.
In 2021 it underwent a deep refit to make it even safer and more comfortable.
