This is a holiday dedicated to
- Sailing School
Brief description of the holiday
From the Azores, sailing to Brittany with a 14-day cruise in two stages: first with the discovery of the islands in the Azores, followed by a crossing in the North Atlantic in wide-open mode. A committed cruise that reconciles the discovery of a destination not very popular, the archipelago of the Azores, and navigation offshore.
The first part involves 3 to 5 days of cruise in the islands of Pico, São Jorge and Punta Del Gad, with anchorages in the evening to fully enjoy these islands and sail before heading to South Brittany.
For those who wish, observe marine mammals aboard the local companies for approximately 3 to 4 hours of sailing.
Then it's "the big leap", 8 to 10 days sailing offshore in the Atlantic Ocean, punctuated by the rising quarters, descendants, sunrises and sunsets under the Atlantic starry sky!
