This is an example itinerary of what we did last year on an adventure sailing holiday aboard Velvet Lady in the Canary Islands. Velvet Lady is an Oyster 55 skippered yacht. All our sailing holidays are weather dependent and the exact itinerary will be decided by the skipper to suit the weather conditions.
