An open cabin with various curtained bunks to afford some privacy, storage & shared bathrooms equipped with showers.We’ll spend 3 days sailing the northern coast and down into Vigo where we will explore the city and the stunning, rugged coastline aswell as sample the fine local cuisine. • Full board & accommodation on the ship for the duration of the trip • Guided tour of the city of Vigo including tapas • Cycling tour  • Food & wine tasting onboard during a short sail around the Ria de Vigo (optional) • Practice your Spanish with the crew onboard! Bilingual trip
Join us onboard Atyla at 16.00 in the Gijón sports marina. Once we are all on board, we will go through a quick safety briefing; after which you are free to explore the city at your leisure. Our crew liaison will be available to take you around and show you the sights if you would like but no food or dinks are included in this option. Dinner is provided on board, but you can eat on shore if you wish.The following morning we will depart Gijón on the high tide at 9am for a 3 day sailing trip, hugging the incredibly stunning and rugged coastline infamously called the ‘Costa da Morte’ (Coast of death), due to the number of shipwrecks in the area. Not all of which lost their way in a storm, but rather chillingly were deliberately lured onto the rocks by local rogues in order to loot their precious cargos.We plan to arrive in Vigo on the incoming tide on Friday at 10am. This gives us a full day to explore. We’ll start the day after a good breakfast on board with a guided gastro-historic tour of the city which will take approximately 2 hours, including tapas in 2 local taverns. We’ll then head back to the ship for lunch prepared by our cook showcasing some typical local fayre. In the afternoon we’ll head out on a 4 hour cycling route along the coast, water & snacks provided. Once back on the ship in the evening we’ll enjoy a well deserved dinner, after which you can relax on board or head out into the city for a nightcap.The next day after a late breakfast you can choose to disembark, or join us for a day sail around the ría with other guests and enjoy a food & wine tasting lunch on board if your travel plans permit.Latest disembarkation is 17.00 on the 27thGratuity optional
