A nice introduction to Ocean Sailing with a short passage to Madeira. The trade winds will be playing on our favour.
This 1200NM Ocean passage should take 4 days Faro-Funchal + 3 days break in Madeira + 5-6 days sail back against the trade winds. In total 12-14 days passage.
We also include 1 or 2 day for weather delay departure.
If the passage is super fast we will have the chance to landfall in Porto Santo to explore ashore before our final destination - Funchal.
Once in Funchal we will have 1 or 2 days to explore the island do some hiking and explore the "Levadas" before heading back to Portugal mainland. Sailing back against the trade winds will be challenging but also fun.

A plan is just a plan. We like to sail, we don't like to motor, so things could get off track sometimes. As sailors we are always depending on the weather conditions, everything is uncertain.
Nevertheless, here is the plan for the expedition:
Some of our expeditions require some qualifications or previous experience from the crew due to the nature of it's difficulty and in order to make a safe and comfortable passage for everyone.
