The Canary Islands are a Spanish archipelago, located in the Atlantic Ocean, 150 kilometres west of Morocco and more than 1000 kilometres away from the south of the Iberian Peninsula. This archipelago is composed of seven islands: Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro.
The Canaries archipelago, which extends over 240 nautical miles east-west, is antrue playground for sailors. From island to island, you will experience a complete change of scenery and will be surprised by the rich diversity of the islands, which are all very different. Never-ending beaches, dunes, remote anchorages, volcanoes, charms of a colonial past... the Canaries archipelago is a vast area offering diversity, authenticity, contrasting landscapes and exoticism to delight boaters.
This group of islands enjoys a heavenly climate all year round, offering ideal sailing conditions, though sometimes challenging. These islands, situated in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, are swept by trade winds that strengthen around the islands. This phenomenon, which can sometimes be violent, requires particular care and vigilance. The northeasterly trade wind is consistent from March to August and generally blows at a force of 4 to 5 on the Beaufort scale.
With an annual average temperature of 20°C and a minimum of 300 days of sunshine per year, the climate of the Canary Islands is considered as one of the most pleasant in the world.
