the canary islands - seven gorgeous sun islands
In the middle of the Atlantic Ocean lies one of the most popular holiday destinations for all sun worshippers: the Canary Islands. Geographically, the islands are part of Africa, but politically they belong to Spain; custom and tax regulations differ from the EU, and here the Western European time applies. Each of the seven main islands impresses in a special way with extraordinary landscapes, diverse vegetation, and fantastic fine sandy beaches. These are the reasons why the Canary Islands are also ideal for any type of sailing holiday. Dolphin company while sailing is not uncommon, and sometimes whales also can be seen.
The climate - about 300 sunny days
In the Canarian Islands, there is a subtropical climate, the sun shines for approximately 300 days. Due to the proximity to the equator and the Gulf Stream, it is mild throughout the year, the average temperature is between 17 and 18 degrees, the maximum temperature in summer is about 30 degrees; in the winter it rarely falls below less 10 degrees.
The wind - a paradise for every sailor
The Canary Islands also count to the strong wind areas. The trade wind, a moderately strong and very constant wind, blows reliably throughout the whole year round - thus paradisiacal conditions for sailors.
