Set sail with Grayhound on the first Leg of her Atlantic crossing from Portugal to the Canary Islands via Madeira.

An adventure sailing holiday across an ocean is certainly one that leaves life-long memories. Using the northeasterly trade winds above the equator to fill the sails with thousands of miles to cover, this sailing adventure is not for the faint hearted but perfect for the avid adventurer!

Leaving from Portimão to La Palma in the Canary islands with traditional lugger Grayhound, there will be some 700 nautical miles to cross as you leave land in the distant horizon. The voyage has 12 days to cross the open ocean and there are buffer days included in this to make best use of the wind.
