We love Atlantic sailing crossings.
After the summer season in the Mediterranean, we approach the ocean in stages for the Atlantic crossing on a sailboat: the Balearics, Almeria, Gibraltar, the Canaries, and then the great jump into the ocean to the Caribbean, for winter season cruising.
In the end of April, it is time for me to return crossing: from West to East, from the Caribbean to the Azores, then Gibraltar, and finally Mediterrranean sea.
Sailing the Atlantic Ocean east to west!
Only the winds will guide, you will learn how to do deep sea fishing, as well as live an unforgettable human and sailing experience.
A 800nm route that starts at the beginning of November. Leaving the Mediterranean and sailing into the ocean through Gibraltar is always emotional. People with lack of experience of a long passage may start with this route: it takes about a week of sailing.
The real crossing. It typically starts around the end of November, the 2.900nm cross takes about three weeks... only the winds will guide.
Sailing the Atlantic Ocean west to east!
Crossing the Atlantic by sail is an experience for life, marked by the wind, the relationship among cruisers, and the surrounding natures.
