Cape Verde consists of 25 islands, 9 of which are uninhabited. Every island has a character all of its own that begs to be explored. The Western islands have high volcanic mountains and rocky coast lines. The Eastern islands are dryer and flatter; the islands of Sal, Maio and Boavista are home to breathtakingly beautiful beaches. The crystal clear waters reveal brilliantly coloured fish making it the perfect spot for scuba diving and snokelling. Ideal wind conditions as well as warm water and sun, make the islands of Cape Verde great for year-round sailing.
The Cape Verde Islands enjoy steady sailing winds and are hurricane free. The best sailing period is Nov – Mar and with winds of 4 – 6 bft.
To reach the charter base in Mindelo, Sao Vicente fly into Sao Vicente Airport and it will be a 20 min transfer by road.
