DUFOUR 560 GL LYDIA II


Enjoy one of the most remote yacht charter destinations, located around 3hrs flying South from Canary Islands, the Cape Verde archipelago this winter. As one of the most secluded sailing destinations in the world they usually attract hardened sailors on their transatlantic crossing or those keen to cruise new grounds.  Despite a number of other rental boats based there, the availability is usually limited and this is the only 50'+ charter yacht based there. Grab the available latesail or advance booking deal before all weeks are gone as before the end of April, the Dufour 560 and a few other sailboats will be crossing the Atlantic back to the Adriatic for the summer season. 

Your typical Cape Verde sailing itinerary would start out of Club Nautico, where you would find a small number restaurants, caffe bars, one indoor market suitable for provisioning and a few local and tourist souvenir shops.  On a regular weekly charter, your fist day would be spent sailing across to neighbouring Santo Antao.  Considered as the most beautiful of all Cape Verde islands, your yacht charter captain should certainly include it in the itinerary.  Volcanic crater is a must visit as the walk down to Ribeira Grande is one your crew will not want to miss out on.  The variety of landscape and spectacular views are likely to be one of the highlights of your vacation.  On the next days, you would normally sail to Island Sao Nicolau, where a jeep safari could be on the schedule as an onshore excursion.  The wild natural infinity pool with waves crashing against the vertical cliffs below is one of the other highlights you may wish to experience.  The uninhabited island of Santa Lucia is good for fishing enthusiasts while sail around Boa Vista is likely to round up your one week yacht charter cruise. 


DUFOUR 560 GL LYDIA II


With vast desert dunes, a few camels and large number of white sand beaches, this palm fringed island is perfect for ultimate seclusion and escapism.  In case your vacation will last longer and your yacht charter will be a long-term one, you could embark on a long 100nm overnight sail towards Island of Santiago, Sal or Fogo is something that only the most experienced crews should undertake.  With constant trade winds  of Force 4-7 and regular, at times dangerous swells, Cape Verde are considered one of the most difficult sailing grounds on the yacht charter market circuit; its good to know that your Dufour 560 is a capable sailing boat which performs well in such conditions.  So in case you want to find out more and are keen on an adventure of a lifetime, start planning your Cape Verde yacht charter now and request a quote for booking of one of the sailboats or sailing catamarans based there.  One way yachtcharters from or to Sal are also available on request.
