Canary Islands – Staging Area for Atlantic Crossings Through the Ages

The Canary IslandsBy Paul and Sheryl Shard

I don’t know what I expected the first time we made landfall in the Canary Islands but I have to admit that after sailing from the lush mid-Atlantic island of Madeira, I was seriously surprised when the barren desert-like landscapes of the Canary Islands came into view.

The Canary Islands are a mid-Atlantic archipelago lying only 70 nm off the African coast at it’s closest point. An autonomous community of Spain, the Canary Islands lie at the outermost point of the European Union recognized for their historical significance.

Jeanneau NC 33

Jeanneau NC 33By John Armstrong and Andy Adams

Jeanneau’s newest NC model is the NC 33, and it’s an exciting and innovative inboard cruiser ideally suited to young families or couples.

Nick Harvey, President of Jeanneau America wanted to emphasize that their new NC 33 features a hull design by Michael Peters. Peters’ hand has been on many of the company’s recent designs and strong performance and excellent sea-keeping are to be expected.

At an overall length of 34.5” and equipped with twin engines, the NC 33 has been designed to fit in between Jeanneau’s NC 9(30’11” with a single engine) and the NC 11 at 36’6” and with twin engines.
