Regatta Ruta de la Sal Tour: Valencia, Denia, San Antonio de Portamany in Ibiza and return to Valencia
This year also, one of our ships will take exclusively female crew. If you prefer to participate in that one, Women-only crew, and of course you’re a woman (Crashing is not allowed), send us an email or call us. The rest of the crew will be mixed, as always.
In addition, for this edition, some of our ships will also participate in the Mini-Sal (see details below)
Price per place: 575 € Reservation: 175 €
The regatta has three routes, the North version, the West version and the East version. The North route starts in Port Ginesta (Barcelona), West route sails from the Andratx port in Palma and the East route starts in Denia (Alicante). The destination of both routes is Sant Antoni de Portmany in Ibiza. 200 ships (about 75 per route) and its crews gather annually to participate in this popular race.
Mini-sal is also a race starting in Denia, but with a shortened route, it is only for charter ships and only the use of the mainsail and the Genoa sail is allowed.
The fundamental advantage is that it is a shorter route so you can enjoy one more day in Ibiza.
The race is on Thursday 9 and the Awards Party will be held the night of the Holy Saturday. We have all Sunday to return from Ibiza to Valencia.
Participate with Singles and non-singles in this crowded race, don't miss it and don't miss your place. Come to enjoy a different Holy Week aboard a sailboat and meet fun singles and remember, you don’t need experience, another skilled crew will teach you everything you need to know.
