Offshore sailing from Azores to Brittany, aboard a crewed 21m monohull. Departing from Horta on the island of Faial in the Azores, set sail for a 14-day sailing course. This course is organised in two stages. The first few days are spent roaming around, discovering some of the islands of the archipelago. You’ll then set off for the ‘big jump’, around 1500 nautical miles for an offshore sailing course in the North Atlantic.

Boarding in the Azores

Located on the latitude of Lisbon in the North Atlantic Ocean, the 9 islands of this Portuguese archipelago are of volcanic origin. Their northerly position and oceanic climate give them lush vegetation. The Azores Sea is home to some very special marine life, including various species of cetacean, the most common of which are sperm whales, whales and dolphins.

The first five or six days are devoted to coastal sailing and stopovers on the islands of Pico, São Jorge, Terceira, São Miguel… At this time of year, many local festivals and events take place on the islands.
