Voyage Description

FULL VOYAGE DESCRIPTION

Setting Sail from Cádiz

Embarking on a majestic journey, Eye of the Wind sets sail from Cádiz, a historic port in Andalusia, Southern Spain. Cádiz, known for its ancient maritime traditions, offers a picturesque start to our voyage. The city’s vibrant streets, lined with age-old architecture, echo stories of seafarers from eras gone by. As we depart, the expansive North Atlantic opens before us, inviting us into its vast embrace.

Along the Way

Traversing the open sea, you’ll be treated to a symphony of nature’s wonders. Keep a keen eye for the diverse marine life – dolphins playfully riding the bow wave or the occasional whale in the distance. The skies above, a theatre of seabirds, offer a constant display. The route is a canvas of changing landscapes, from the azure depths of the Atlantic to the distant sight of rugged coastlines. As the sun sets, the sky transforms into a mesmerizing palette of colors, a spectacle not to be missed.

Arriving in Lanzarote

The volcanic island of Lanzarote welcomes you with its unique lunar-like landscape. After disembarking, consider exploring the Timanfaya National Park, where the island’s volcanic origins are spectacularly on display. The Cueva de los Verdes offers an intriguing underground adventure through a lava tube. Lanzarote’s beaches, with their golden sands and crystal-clear waters, are perfect for a day of relaxation before you bid farewell to this extraordinary journey.

WINDS, WAVES & WEATHER

In November, the Atlantic waters can be moderately temperamental, offering a true sailing experience. Expect variable winds, which provide an excellent opportunity for authentic sailing. The temperature is pleasantly mild, but it’s advisable to be prepared for occasional showers and cooler evenings.

A NOTE ON VOYAGE DESCRIPTIONS

On a sailing voyage we never use the word itinerary, as skippers will always be aiming for the best and safest sailing routes for the forecast. They are as keen as you to include some of the highlights described above, but when it comes to sailing, you have to go with Mother Nature, not fight her. The description provided is based on what we think might be possible, based on past trips, or prior experience, but nothing is guaranteed on a sailing voyage. As such, the scheduled joining ports, routes, activities and/or destinations may be altered. Due to the complexities of weather systems, this may be at very short notice. 

HANDS ON HOLIDAYS

Whether you are an experienced sailor or a complete beginner, the professional crew will train you to be guest crew from the moment you arrive, with the intention that everybody works together to sail the ship. The common thread to all Classic Sailing holidays is ‘Hands on’ participation on ships that use ropes, blocks and tackles and ‘people power’ to set sail. Handling cargo adds an extra dimension – building teamwork and communication skills and leaving you with a great sense of achievement.

SAILING STYLE & LIFE ON BOARD

We cater for a wide range of ages and physical abilities and how much you are expected to do varies a bit between vessels. See the vessel tab above which explains all about the ‘sailing style’ and what to expect in terms of hands on participation. There is a lot of information about day to day life, the ships facilities and accommodation on the vessel pages.
