Something to push you to your limits!
The waters around the straits of Gibraltar can be challenging. The weather patterns, tides and the varying depths demand vigilance on part of the crew and navigators. The sea conditions to the east and west of the straits can be very different even with same wind strength and direction. Combine this with the heavy shipping though the straits and you have the opportunity for an intense sailing experience. The waters around the straits are tidal so count towards mileage requirements for RYA qualifications.
