With a capacity up to 33 guests, the Westenwind is a 24,5 meter Dutch Klipper, typical from the rivers of The Netherlands. It’s a flat-bottom sailing boat that uses sideboards to avoid drifting. The Westenwind dates from 1910 and was brought to Portugal in 2014. The owners bought the boat in 2013 in Enkhuizen (NL) and sailed it down to Portugal through the French canals (passing over 275 locks) and further along the Mediterranean Sea and then along the Spanish and Portuguese coast, up to Lisbon.
