Route "O Cabaleiro das Cunchas"

 

IX Route "O Cabaleiro das Cunchas"
3-12 August 2018

For the ninth consecutive year we organize the maritime route O Cabaleiro das Cunchas, a Jacobean sea crossing that recalls the final stretch of the translation of the remains of Saint James the Apostle (known as “the Traslatio”), according to legend.

It will be held between 3rd and 12th August, 2018, with non-competitive navigation in convoy, organized in several legs and visiting several ports on the Portuguese coast, Vigo and Arousa estuaries and, finally, the Cathedral of Santiago.

Our goal is that sailors could enjoy a few days of navigation and activities in each port we visit, where the organization will be responsible for arranging the berths. A varied programming is being prepared, with outstanding cultural, gastronomic and leisure aspects.

Navigation in convoy has the charm and uniqueness of an the expedition in which the boats sail together, always in sight and in permanent contact with security and accompaniment elements.

In this edition we will include "sail training", where young people between 16 and 25 years old will start sailing.
