The Archipelago of the Azores are located in the mid North Atlantic Ocean, within a range bounded by the parallels 36° 55' 43'' and 39° 43' 02'' N and the meridians 24° 46 ' 15'' and 31° 16' 02'' W.

The two main yacht charter areas of the Azores are either the central island group including the islands of Faial, Pico, Sao Jorge, Terceira and Graciosa or the eastern islands of Sao Miguel and Santa Maria. The Azores are a great cruising ground with everything from steep rising majestic volcanos to sleepy little fishing villages. We have yachts based in the lovely marinas of Horta on Faial island, Lajes on Pico island and Vila Franca on Sao Miguel.
Canary Islands
The Spanish Canary Islands is an archipelago that lies of the NW coast of mainland Africa, Morocco and the Western Sahara in the Atlantic Ocean. They consist of seven islands of volcanic origin; Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera, El Hierro, Fuerteventura, La Graciosa

The Canary Island's geographical position means that there are generally great winds for sailing. The North Easterly trades that once took Columbus to America funnel through the islands creating what are known as wind acceleration zones and this means that even with fairly light prevailing winds there is still enough wind for great sailing. The Canary Islands are perfect location for a winter yacht charter vacation.
Cape Verdes
The archipelogo of Cape Verde is composed of ten islands, of which nine are inhabited, and eight islets. The islands are divided into the Barlavento or windward islands: Santo Antão, São Vicente, Santa Luzia, São Nicolau, Sal, and Boa Vista. And the Sotavento or leeward islands: Maio, Santiago, Fogo, and Brava.The largest island, both in size and population, is Santiago, where the capital of Praia is located.

The Cape Verdes are a great destination for a winter yacht charter vacation.
