Spend 7days sailing with Eye of the wind from Lanzarote, the “Island of the Fire Mountains” to Tenerife, the “Island of Eternal Spring”

Join Eye of the Wind as she begins her Canary Island exploration from Lanzarote to Tenerife. Think blue-water sailing, the wind as our motor, volcanoes as landmarks and dolphins as companions.

After embarking at 7 pm, there will be dinner together in the comfortable lounge, where you will soon feel at home and get to know your fellow sailors.

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 manoeuvers and the traditional seamanship in action every day. If you like, you can make yourself comfortable below deck in the comfortable lounge, browse through a good book from the large onboard library, or see which DVDs are available.

The decision on which port or anchorage to call on in the evening is made by the captain on the same day and depends on the wind and weather conditions – whenever possible, your wishes will be taken into account. This ensures that your sailing trip is a pleasant mixture of adventure, relaxation, active participation and pure enjoyment. Weather permitting, we will have the opportunity to sail and explore some of the coasts of Lanzarote before making the sailing passage across to Tenerife.

Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and is often referred to as the ‘Island of Eternal Spring’ because of its unique climate. Its secret lies in the mixture of scenic and cultural diversity, and the impressive contrasts between young volcanic regions, mountainous landscapes, old laurel forests, bizarre rocky gorges, and stretches of sandy beaches.

Tenerife is also home to Spain’s highest mountain, Pico del Teide, and the surrounding national park. It offers a rich and varied cultural life, so make the best of your stay by going for a stroll along the boulevards (Ramblas) in the vibrant capital, Santa Cruz, and by visiting the tropical city park.

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.

Although the ship has a large, capable engine, traditional sailing is naturally the preferred mode of travel so there is plenty to get stuck into on deck. The crew are extremely experienced and ready to teach you the workings of a classic tall ship, so no prior knowledge is necessary. Join the crew at any number of the large maritime festivals they appear at, cruise the European coast, or relish some winter sun and climb aboard for their voyages in the Caribbean – including a transatlantic crossing back from the Caribbean to Portugal.

Thanks to the 6 luxurious cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms, Eye of the Wind can sleep a total of 16 guests ensuring ocean passages can be travelled in true comfort. A large dining area, library and sun deck offer a multitude of different spaces to unwind and to get to know your fellow guests and crew.
