Sailex Reference LAN19 Lead Skipper Neville Buckle
Yes, the EOS will not be the actual “end” of our 2019 sailing season as we have returned to having one very warm sailex to close the year and set us up well for the colder months at home. The weather in the Canary Islands and Lanzarote is very pleasant throughout the year. In the colder months in Europe, minimum values in Lanzarote are around 15 degrees C and a maximum of 25 degrees C. The wind in Lanzarote is intense throughout the year and the trade winds blowing from the Atlantic make this a paradise for sailors.
We have chartered two Bavaria 46 cruisers both 2014 yachts from the premier charter company in Lanzarote berthed at Arricefe Marina. The yachts are Carlotta and Django, both 4 cabins with a double in the saloon.
Flights from East Midlands are available with Jet2.com from the East MIdlands for less than £270 with seat allocation, bags and on-board meals. Timing for these Saturday flights are good for joining the sailex and for returning home after the event. Some members may be tempted to stay a second week on the island to make a longer break.
The yachts are supplied with a bow thruster, autopilot, bimini, dinghy and outboard engine, inverter and a teak deck. Berth costs have been based on a crew of 6 and include the following compulsory extras - end cleaning, gas, berthing at the home marina, linen and towels. Berth cost £545
Details of a proposed sailing plan are currently being worked on and I hope to add some more detail to this page when available. Note berth costs are now based on 6 not 7 as previously indicated as we were able to secure a further discount when chartering the yachts. We currently have five berths available.
