Sailing, sailing schools and yachtcharter Gran Canaria

Sailing is the art of controlling a sailing vessel. By changing the rigging, rudder and dagger or centre board, a sailor manages the force of the wind on the sails in order to change the direction and speed of a boat.
Mastery of the skill requires experience in varying wind and sea conditions, as well as knowledge concerning sailboats.
Sailing is very popular in Gran Canaria, largely due to the island’s perfect climate and the predominant winds.
Sailing schools in the South of the island are offering sailing lesson packages and hourly lessons, with the possibility to earn international Sailing Certifications.

Atlantic Rallye for Cruisers

One of the famous events in Gran Canaria is the ARC - the Atlantic Rallye for Cruisers. This annual transatlantic rally starting each November in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria,
has now become the most popular way to cross the Atlantic. The largest transocean sailing event in the world, every year the ARC brings together over 200 yachts from all over the world. The Caribbean destination is Rodney Bay in St.Lucia
