WHAT IS A YACHT EXPEDITION
For 8 days you will turn from a tourist into a real sailor, become a crew member, will be trained in yachting (in Russian and English).
We will have every chance to see whales and dolphins, perhaps they will accompany our boat on this voyage.
Our yacht is Jeanneau Sun Odissey 49. This is not a charter yacht, but we own it. The conditions are excellent: each cabin has its own shower and toilet. In the marinas where we will spend the nights, there are comfortable showers, toilets, restaurants, shops, wi-fi. We will cook breakfasts ourselves, eat lunches and dinners at restaurants or cafes or cook them on board ourselves.
Our voyage includes two island tours. The Azores are located right in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. You will need to fly to the island of Faial, Marina Horta, and here the adventure will begin! The return flight is also from the island of Faial.
