YOUR SAILING AREA
This sailing holiday is great for those wanting to gain sea miles and gain more exposure with longer passages at sea. The soft, steady up and down of the ship’s hull in the waves, the expanse of the sea, and the permanent gentle creaking of the rigging are the perfect ingredients for a relaxing and at the same time, adventurous holiday experience.
After receiving safety instructions and an introduction to sailing from the ship’s crew, you will soon be able to take part in sailing yourself. Hands-on assistance on deck is always voluntary, so if you want, you can just relax and enjoy watching the sailing manoeuvres and the traditional seamanship in action every day.
La Coruña town’s history is closely connected with its historic fishing and trading port, and the peninsula on which the historic part of town is situated is home to an interesting Romanesque road network with squares and medieval churches as well as the Hercules Tower, the oldest lighthouse in the world. The Museum of Fine Arts, with works by Goya and others on display, is also worth a visit.

Eye of the Wind
Guest berths: 16 Rig: Brig
With incredible amounts of character, Eye of the Wind has all the modern amenities and an authentic interior, with a teak maritime décor. Oozing with maritime history, the opportunity to sail on Eye of the Wind is one in a lifetime. This beautiful ship is as eye-catching as they get and she has even featured in several movies, including White Squall, due to her breath-taking appearance as a 1911 brig.
This windjammer offers luxurious holidays on board, cruising some of the most stunning locations in the world.
