Lanzarote seminars

10 – 13 November 2014

A range of free seminars will be offered to all sailors in the Canary Islands. You do not have to be part of the Atlantic Odyssey to join these seminars; you can be cruising on your own or part of any other event – all sailors are welcome. We will also organise smaller groups for practical sessions.

All seminars are to be held in Marina Lanzarote, Arrecife, in the Odyssey Seminar Room.
