Five centuries after Juan Sebastián Elcano culminated his maritime odyssey of circumnavigating the globe for the first time, today’s seafarers have the advantages of comfort and technical virtuosity. Fortunately, the infinity of the sea can now be a friendly and relaxing atmosphere – thanks to sector leaders like Spirit Experiences. This company specialized in organizing private sailing trips along the Basque coast offers a unique and unforgettable opportunity for couples, families, and friends – or even alone.
José de Espronceda said it best in his famous poem: “The breeze fair aft, all sails on high; Ten guns on each side mounted seen; She does not cut the sea, but fly; A swiftly sailing brigantine.” And in this case, that “swiftly sailing brigantine” is called the “Spirit,” a ship measuring more than 12 meters in length with three double cabins and two bathrooms. A true prodigy of engineering that was manufactured in La Rochelle and has made nautical excursions popular in the Basque Country.
Unlike the crew commanded by Elcano, the passengers of the Spirit do indeed have all imaginable comforts: towels, warm clothes, books, magazines, fishing and snorkeling equipment, and a dinghy to access remote coves. There is also a food and beverage service on board that can provide a snack, a lunch, a wine tasting experience with a sommelier, or even a tasting menu designed by a private chef, since the sailboat is equipped with a kitchen and a barbecue grill.
The expertise of captains Ian and Jon is the best reason why visitors choose to go on outings for half a day, a full day, and even several nights. Whether they want to collect memories, raise the bar on their vacation, round off a team building session, or have a romantic getaway, this craft’s lucky travelers will enjoy an outing full of fun. What better opportunity than this to take your marriage proposal to the high seas? Under the rays of the sun or under the radiance of the moon, Spirit Experiences has the perfect solution.
