“We tried to make the most of it, but it was far from ideal”

Hey Grigory, thanks for asking. The boat was not in good condition. For example, there were no mooring, deck or motoring lights, so we feared a boat would hit us while we slept, and were not complying with the law while sailing at night. The anchor w…

Tenerife, one of the most beautiful of the Spanish Canary Islands, offers everything vacationers need to enjoy a West African escape. The lush volcanic rocks and year-round picturesque skies make Tenerife one of the most sought-after sailing destinations in the world. While not as well-known as the Mediterranean and Carribean, these beaches attract serious skippers for many reasons. It is the perfect place for stargazing on the beach, experiencing Canary Island wildlife, and enjoying some incredible international attractions such as Mount Teide and The Masca Walk.

12 Knots wants to help every sailor make the most of their Tenerife yacht, sailboat, or catamaran charter. Before you book a sailboat rental in Tenerife, here is what you should know:

Sailing Conditions in Tenerife

The winds in Tenerife blow consistently throughout the year, influenced by the north-east trade winds. These trade winds are strongest in the spring and summer, especially July. The tides in Tenerife are also very consistent, with the greatest tidal range averaging around 2.8 meters. While winds in the Canary Islands may be strong for beginner sailors, the benevolent weather and calm seas can provide a pleasurable sailing season.

Best Time to Vacation in Tenerife

The best time to visit Tenerife and the Canary Islands is the spring and early fall. The island becomes crowded with tourists during the summer months, making it less pleasurable for sailors. Entertainment, dining, and island excursions will also be more expensive during the summer. March, April, May, and September offer the best weather and fewer tourists on land, which is when 12 Knots recommends our clients book their trips.

Sailing Difficulty Level

Sailing in Tenerife is very enjoyable for experienced sailors, and can provide a great first challenge for beginners. All seven main islands of the Canaries are within a day’s sail of each other, offering plenty of opportunities to sightsee and enjoy your West African trip to the fullest. Between the islands, however, are more challenging sailing trips that could pose difficulty for novice skippers.

Wind speeds change more quickly near Tenerife than in other seas. It is not unusual to experience a calm 10 knots, only for the winds to kick up to 30 knots within a short distance. You must be vigilant for white caps, and be ready to reef when wind speeds kick up. Therefore, those with little sailing experience may fare better with a crewed charter due to the sailing challenges that can be more complex than Caribbean sailing.
