The sailing area of Cape Verde
Sailing on Cape Verde means open Atlantic sailing with partly short, but also longer sailing distances. The islands are divided into two groups: The northern islands of Barlavento ("islands above the wind") and the southern islands of Sotavento ("islands below the wind"). Only 9 of the 15 islands are permanently inhabited! Extensive sandy beaches can be found mainly on the flat east islands, as well as on Sao Vicente. Behind the beaches there are dunes and salt marshes. You will find a wide variety of plant species, about 90 of which are found nowhere else in the world. The uninhabited island of Santa Luzia has miles of lonely sandy beaches. If you are planning a longer stay, you must sail south to the island of Fogo. The visit of the 2.728m high volcano is a must, not only for hikers. Only about 10 nautical miles away you will find the completely opposite island Brava, which is also known as flower island. You can find a very interesting video contributions about the islands HERE.
