Celebrate New Year by doing something different! Something a bit exotic!

Welcome the arrival of 2024 with a Spanish and African vibe by joining us for a sail around the famous Straits of Gibraltar taking in the sights and excitement of Spain and Morrocco.

Escape the dull days between Christmas and New Year. Fill your lungs with fresh sea air, relish sailing along a breathtaking scenic coastline and enjoy tapas, tagines and more in an evening. There'll be plenty of opportunities to capture Instagram-worthy moments!

You can be involved in the actual sailing during the day…or not! It’s your choice. Our professional skippers can introduce you to sailing or help you develop your existing skills. This trip is not just about New Year – it’s about sailing and New Year!

Locations we could explore include Gibraltar itself, La Linea and La Duquesa in Spain, Tangier and Smir in Morrocco and Ceuta; the Spanish enclave within Morrocco. This is a fabulous opportunity to sail between the continents of Europe and Africa.

We’ll sail where the wind and tide takes us but plan to spend New Years Eve in Ceuta enjoying a heady mix of Spanish and Moroccan culture. To make sure you get the best luck in 2024 you’ll need to be wearing red underwear and eat 12 grapes; 1 on each clock bell strikes at midnight on December 31st.

You'll be surrounded by like-minded adventurers and those seeking a unique New Year's experience. Connect with fellow travelers and create lasting memories together.

Don't miss this opportunity to start the New Year in a unique and memorable way.

Join us on our New Year's Sailing Adventure and make it a night you'll talk about for years to come. Book your spot today!
