Start:38610, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain
Finish:30740 San Pedro del Pinatar, Murcia, Spain
Ocean crossing from Tenerife — San Pedro del Pinatar — about 920 nm (full day stops in Madeira and Tangier (Morocco).
Long ocean crossings are an ideal way to gain experience, to understand everything that interests you in sailing practice, to get into difficult situations that are easily solved by the advice of an experienced skipper, and to accumulate nautical miles in a private matter.
This is a unique life experience.
Perhaps the essential thing that is so attractive in ocean traveling is the ability to touch the dream. Spend a few days with a flat horizon, meet sunsets and sunrises, look at the night sky, and gather incredible stories.
Incredible places where ever you are.
We are sincerely sure that without our help, you are unlikely to find yourself in the middle of the Bay of Biscay or off the coast of Madeira, it is hard to look at the cliffs of fabulous islands. Crossing the Atlantic is just such an opportunity.

At 10.00 a.m., we meet on board in the Santa Cruz marina, settle down, prepare with water and fuel and leave for Madeira. Before Madeira, 250 miles, 550 miles, with an estimated speed of 6 knots, the travel time should be a little less than two days. Indeed, these are purely theoretical calculations, what corrections will the sea make, we will find out only during the sailing. We have a margin of time, so we will move without forcing events.
We have time to walk around Madeira all day. Please fill free to take a car and examine it all. For this, there are many observation platforms on the island located on highlands. No wonder the island is called a Pearl thrown by the Gods into the Atlantic. Personally, it is always more enjoyable for me to go to new places where I have never been, but Madeira is one of the rare exceptions, I want to come back here again and again.
Early in the morning we leave for the mainland, to Tangier (Morocco). From Madeira to Tangier 550 miles, full 4 days.
We walk around Tangier all day. Tangier experienced numerous waves of invasions both from the West and from the East. Artists and writers from America and Europe aspired to this city, attracted by its bohemian atmosphere. While walking along the noisy streets, we may meet the reef Berbers, who arrived from the countryside, in traditional striped bright blankets. We need to be prepared to meet with many annoying, but quite harmless barkers and assistants, we will have to put up with their existence as with an integral part of this traditional many-sided and colorful land. Morocco has always been a country of free thought, and Tangier is no exception.
Sailing to San Pedro del Pinatar.
At 9.00 we embrace with light sadness and briefly drive home and realise how much cooler we have become in the past 800 !! miles And then again — SEE YOU IN THE SEA!
Tangier is a large port city in Morocco, located on the shores of the Strait of Gibraltar. Ever since Phoenician times, this port has been the so-called gateway between Africa and Europe.
