Cherbourg to Lisbon (Cascais) is a epic stretch of water including rounding the Ushant, passing the Cap Finisterre and crossing the Bay of Biscay. It includes lots of dramatic and historic landmarks for seafarers since centuries. After passing the North Western point of the Iberian Peninsula, we should finally expect some decent trades to take us all the way to Lisbon. Because of the time of year the weather should be in our favour and we try to do as many stopovers as we can along the way!
This is a true blue water leg with all the proper watch rota procedures and high seas drills. If you plan to crew on a blue water craft or maybe even taking a yacht of your own long distance, this is the perfect opportunity to learn.
Possible stop-overs: Brest – La Coruna – Spanish Rias – Porto – Lisbon
We are taking six crew for this leg.
Stop-overs are always subject to weather and the decision of the skipper.
We charge a sailing fee of 1450 € for this trip including:
