Our African Weekend Adventure to Ceuta starts in Queensway Quay Marina on Saturday morning (accommodation is available on Friday evening if required). We will then prepare the yacht for sea and head out in to Gibraltar bay for the morning to complete some basic manoeuvres. Everyone will have the opportunity to practice helming the yacht whilst gaining their sea legs and watching the Dolphins. After a light lunch at anchor we will set sail across the tempestuous Straits of Gibraltar to Ceuta, a little known Spanish enclave on the African mainland where we will spend the night in a local marina. Dinner will be eaten ashore in one of the many tapas bars or a local restaurant.
Sunday morning, after a short period of sightseeing we will once again prepare the yacht for sea and set sail back across the Straits toward Gibraltar. Time permitting we will carry out some more manoeuvres and perhaps a few exercises for those who are inclined before heading back in to Queensway Quay Marina, Gibraltar
This trip is designed in the true ‘no pressure, Jolly Parrot’ style and for crew to be as active or relaxed as you like. Those who want to be involved, help take command and assume responsible roles can do just that under guidance of your instructor. Those who want to chill out and relax can simply watch the dolphins! No prior experience is required, simply a desire to have fun. But beware, sailing is addictive and you may just get hooked!
During the weekend we anticipate covering approximately 50 tidal miles which is a useful addition to the log book for anyone looking to gain miles for their next qualification.
