Sailing in Fuerteventura

 

Sailing in Fuerteventura

The sailing conditions in Fuerteventura are perfect for Sailing with air temperature between 18 and 24 degrees Celsius for most of the year; the sea temperature is around 20 degrees; and a moderate to strong prevailing off shore wind.

There are sailing courses available on the island, and also the opportunity to go on sailing excursions. 

While sailing in Fuerteventura, there’ll be the opportunity to see whales, dolphins, flying fish, porpoises, loggerhead turtles and a host of other marine life in the clear sea water.

The main sailing marinas for those who are into Fuerteventura sailing are in Corralejo, El Cotillo, Puerto del Rosario, Caleta de Fuste, Gran Tarajal and Morro Jable. The marina in Gran Tarajal has recently been expanded and offers many berths for resident boats and yachts and for overnight stop overs.

Sailing courses on catamarans are possible at Las Playitas and Tarajalejo on the south-east coast. A one hour taster experience, with an instructor, costs 25 euros. A 12 hour course (4 days) costs around 250 euros, and in that time you’ll be trained to sail a catamaran. There is a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) approved training centre in Corralejo.

Although Fuerteventura has the ideal conditions for it, sailing is less popular than for example kitesurfing and windsurfing. The reason for that could be the fact that, although there are several harbours on Fuerteventura, there are only a few sheltered bays where you can drop anchor and dropping anchor at an idyllic spot is what most of the people that are travelling with large yachts are looking for. A marina is planned however just before you get to Corrralejo.
