Area Highlights

The Canary Islands are an all-year sailing destination with wind guarantee. During the warm summers, the trade winds provide a pleasant freshness, while the winters are mild, so that temperatures reach up to 22 ° C on a yearly average. It’s quite common to go for a swim in the open sea over Christmas at water temperatures between 18 ° C – 20 ° . The islands are of volcanic origin, with a diverse natural cosmos of volcanic craters, cones, lava fields, deserts, rocky landscapes, lush greenery and long sandy beaches. Visitors who are looking for a social and cultural events besides sun, sea and nature, will find attractive offerings around the big tourist areas on Gran Canaria or Tenerife.

The Canary Islands offer a good sailing infrastructure with well-equipped marinas. Options for anchoring are quite rare, due to a steep coastline, as it is usual for volcanic islands.

 

 

 

 

Lanzarote is “the island of thousand volcanoes”. Don’t miss the drive through the majestic volcanic scenery shimmering in black with countless craters, lava flows and cinder, until you reach the natural park “Parque de Timanfaya”. The north coast is a hot spot for divers.

Fuerteventura offers more than 50 km of white sandy beaches, clear waters and beautiful anchorages. Every August, Fuerteventura is the host of the speed- surfing world championships.

Gran Canaria fascinates with diverse sceneries – from the sometimes snow – covered “Pico de las Nieves” with 2,000 meters altitude to the famous and finest sandy beaches such as “Playa del Inglés” and “Maspalomas”. A special highlight of Gran Canaria are the narrow canyons reaching from sea level high up to the mountains. The tourist centres are located in the south of the island and offer a broad range of attractions.

Tenerife is the largest among the Canary Islands – and home of the famous “Pico de Teide” – with 3,700 meters altitude the highest mountain in Spain. The Island hosts different climate zones: from the northern parts with mild temperatures to the hot, sun-drenched south side. During the winter months you have the choice to either relax on one of the beaches or take a snow walk in “Las Cañades”.

La Gomera is the preferred spot for visitors who enjoy a peaceful natural environment.

La Palma is the greenest among all Canary Islands.

El Hierro, our insider tip, was considered to be the end of the world during Columbus times. As it is separate from the man tourist routes, it is probably the most quiet among all the Canary Island. During the north – easterly trade wind period, the south coast offers well protected and quiet anchorages.

Climate and weather

Al –year- spring climate with average temperatures of 22 ° C (see above). In open waters mostly moderate trade winds with between 3 – 6 bft strength, in case of cape- and jet effects near an island also beyond. The sirocco, a hot wind from the Sahara, can cause additional turbulences, especially during spring and autumn. The wind conditions plus the relatively wide distances between the islands can cause challenges for the crews. This is why sailing through the Canary Islands requires a crew of well experienced sailors.
