Morocco Sailing Expedition

We will leave Faro and travel South-East towards Barbate crossing the Golf of Cadiz. In Spanish territory we can visit Cadiz either to indulge with the city’s fantastic tapas or to wonder around one of the oldest towns in the western Europe.

Another option to stop is Barbate. This village has a long history of fishing – the tuna Capital! Maybe you´ll have a chance to get a tuna while passing by… try it.

As a stop over the town has an attractive central square “Plaza de la Inmaculada” that gathers the “movida” in the small settlement and a great protected marina (nice showers) that will surely provide a good night sleep.

Arriving Gibraltar you will feel the peace of entering a picturesque remote location, an ironic feeling though, considering that the passage will be a heartbeat raising experience with big ships crossing grey, windy and sometimes turbulent seas. We like to stay on the Spanish side – La Linea. Tapas are closer from Alcaidesa Marina.

The passage to Ceuta is short but challenging. Crossing the Strait is unique. Ceuta and / or Tanger will be options when crossing the Strait>>

On the sail back to Olhão we´ll do a night passage. This mile building covers approximately 300 miles.

Our trip will be tailored according weather forecast, nevertheless we can introduce you to some of most desirable options.

You should be able to take a night watch, learn how to work with AIS, radar, plotter and chart work.

Marocco Sailing Expedition can help you build up your miles and give you night sailing experience. This is one of the requirements for IYT, ASA and RYA qualifications>>

Max crew onboard during this Expedition: 3 + skipper

Tour Plan

A plan is just a plan. We like to sail. We don't like to motor.
After check in  and get yourself comfortable we will be discovering the boat and doing the safety briefing, checking the weather. If the weather forecast is good we will be casting off after lunch on a passage to Barbate or Gilbraltar that should be around 24-26 hours. Onw day or two in La Linea (Gibraltar) should be enought to regain energy so we can cross the Strait and explore Ceuta and Tanger. Leaving the Strait can be tricky so we have to do it with favourable weather on the way back to Faro. We might be stoping in Cadiz, Conil or Barbate.
  • Bareboat Skipper / Day Skipper certification
