Paid by crew
Palma de Mallorca
Tenerife (Las Galletas)
Qualification level required (or equivalent)
We will be sailing from Palma de Mallorca to Tenerife in the Canary Islands and visit some fascinating places along the way. It is a voyage of approx 1400NM and it is an excellent mile building and training opportunity.
It will not just be a race to get there. I anticipate stopovers in Formentera, Alicante, San José (Almeria), Malaga, Gibraltar, and some of Canary Islands.
If you are an aspiring Skipper or Yachtmaster, it will be an excellent opportunity to gain some blue water miles, practice navigation, pilotage and COLREG skills.
The opportunity will also be there to act as skipper for your RYA Yachtmaster Offshore qualifying 60M passages (including overnight). You can also be a Watch Leader on the passage over 600NM qualifying for RYA Yachtmaster Ocean.
During the long ocean passage you will have a chance to navigate using celestial navigation with sextant.
