Course: 

Sailing Expedition Azores

Course Description

Eager to join us on an adventurous expedition in the heart of the Atlantic Ocean, straight into the dreamy Azores islands?

Considering an average speed of 6 kts, the passage will take around 5 days. Nevertheless, since we prefer to guarantee a good weather window to go, you will need to book 10 days of your time to opt in.

If we arrive to the Azores a bit earlier we can visit Pico or São Jorge, before heading into the Fail Island and Horta Marina. Once in Horta there will be some time to visit the famous Peter´s Café and taste the popular gin tonic.

This is a qualifying passage for your Yachtmaster Offshore course.
