Canary Island Sailing - February 2019 - Circumnavigate Lanzarote


Join us in Lanzarote for this great relaxing winter sailing holiday.  This is our 11th season here and we know where to go to get the best out of the weather. The regular trade winds ensure that we have good sailing in the day time, and our renowned on board hospitality ensures that you have a relaxing time on board. It will be warm and sunny, giving you a chance to wear your shorts and T shirts ashore, however you will also need some warmer clothes as on the water the breeze can be cold..

The aim of the week is to circumnavigate the island of Lanzarote and spend a day ashore on the beautiful island of La Graciosa.  There are 3 marinas on the islands of Lanzarote and many beaches and anchorages.  As well as sailing we find time to swim, fish, sunbathe on the beach in a deserted anchorage, walk in the sand dunes and visit the local bars for some spanish speciality tapas!

The yacht will be berthed in Marina Rubicon, Lanzarote. Lanzarote is a mere 90 miles off the African coast and situated in the trade wind belt.  This means it is warm, dry and has mainly force 5 winds from the NE.  Great for sailing.

This trip is a real deal at £835,  all inclusive on board.  All meals and snacks, wine with dinner, bedding, towels, waterproof clothing, safety equipment, instruction and harbour dues are included.  Just pay your flights and travel insurance. 

Our changeover days give you as much choice as possible with flights, or why not fly a day or two earlier/later and see what Lanzarote has to offer you inland.
