We meet on the 30th of August in Lissabon on board Montana.
Before we start our sailing, we should take a little time to visit Lisbon. According to a lot of people it is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
At first, we sail from Lisbon to Sines, a small drowsy city and the place of birth of Vasco da Gama. Thereafter Cap Sao Vincente is calling us where we turn to visit the Algarve. Possible stops here are Lagos, Portico and Clamour. Thereafter we leave Portugal and continue to sail in Spanish waters. A worthwhile destination is the bay of Cadiz. Thereafter we sail via Barbate to “The Rock” of Gibraltar with its monkeys. This is a rather challenging part through the Strait of Gibraltar, always Africa insight.
We moor in the Spanish marina of La Linea at the border of Gibraltar.
On our way to “The Rock”, we will cross a runway of the airport – only if there is no landing traffic of course.
On our sailing holidays, we can alter the stops on our trips according to the wishes of our guests.
