This cruise in company from Plymouth to the Algarve is a great way to head south, whether to the Med or onwards to the Canaries and an Atlantic crossing.

Friendly,

fun and relaxed, it offers safety when crossing the Bay of Biscay and

convenience during the day-long hops down Portugal’s fascinating coast.

Date: 4-27 June, 2006.

Yachting Monthly Biscay Triangle 2006

The

Yachting Monthly Biscay Triangle is an annual 3-week cruising rally for

yachtsmen wishing to experience a long-range cruise in company. The

Rally provides camaraderie and professional support and will benefit

both experienced long-distance cruising yachtsmen and those wishing to

extend their sailing experience in a fully-supported, club-style

cruising event.

The departure and return are made

at Torquay, where a warm reception is always assured by the Royal

Torbay Yacht Club. At the end of a 500-mile passage to La Coruña in

North-West Spain, the club-style ethos of the event is underlined by

our rally hosts at the Real Club Nautico of La Coruña and at the

Société Nautique at La Trinité in South Brittany. The Yachting Monthly

Biscay Triangle commences in late July and lasts 3 weeks, providing

sufficient time for joining in Torquay and for returning home after the

event.
