About the event
PYR is working with Global Yacht Training our sister company and an RYA recognised school to offer you the chance to sail from Gibraltar the gateway to the Mediterranean, to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in the Atlantic.
On route you will sail accross the Straighs of Gibraltar and down the African Coast before crossing over the beautiful Canary islands. Once there you will island hop, visiting numerous ports and anchorages and sampling the fantastic Spanish atmosphere of these stunning Atlantic volcanos islands. You will gain around 1000 sea miles and passage experience as well as RYA qualifications, skippered passages and watch-keeping skills. You could also use the trip to qualify for your RYA Yachtmaster.
The trip departs from Gibraltar which is easy to fly to from London, Manchester and East Midlands Airports. The trip ends in Las Palmas Gran Canaria.
