The sailor Miguel Sá departed last Saturday (January 19th), from the Funchal Marina, in solitary navigation to the Cape Verde Archipelago and the City of Praia, under the Re-Navigate Project. This project aims to connect Funchal and its twin cities in the Atlantic by means of a maritime connection by solo sailboat.

The purpose of this trip is to reactivate a closer cooperation, through a trip in solitary navigation, itself a reason of prominence in the Atlantic relation that unites these two cities.

banner Funchal, the capital of the Madeira archipelago, was declared a city in the 1500s, and became an important point between the old and new worlds. The laid-back city owes much of its historical prominence to the white gold, the Madeiran sugar. Today Funchal is known for its appealing temperatures, wine and crafts. Top spots to visit include the open Worker's Market, Blandy's Wine Lodge and the Sacred Art Museum. Friendly locals, walkable streets and cheap taxis make the city easy to get around.
