Successful Start to Lanzarote Long Distance Cruising Seminar Week
The Lanzarote Long Distance Cruising Seminar Week in Arrecife, Lanzarote, made a successful start with 50-60 cruising sailors attending a range of seminars on practical and inspiring subjects covering all aspects of the cruising life.
The seminars are taking place over five days and are hosted by Arrecife’s Real Club Nautico in the centre of the city.
