Event descriptionWhen running on the Barbate O-maps, you can see it. When walking on Gibraltar fortress, you can see it. So, we thought, why not go and have a look? Morocco, almost undiscovered O-destination which Sun-O now tries to link to its Andalucia Offers . We will use our experience of the first MoroccO-3-days , organised in February 2010, to make the trip even more attractive and promise you the great combination of culture and orienteering, surrounded by surprising Moroccan people in a sweet climate! You just cannot miss this ! We will travel by ferry & bus from Algeciras (South of Spain), leaving Saturday morning, returning Monday late afternoon! You are supposed to reach Algeciras by own means (cars can be parked at the ferry terminal); we can off-course assist you in finding the right solution for you. Program: -Sat 19 Feb 2011: 9h, Ferry from Algeciras to Ceuta, short guided bus visit around Ceuta, OL in Ceuta forest (middle), bus to Morocco, dinner & sleep in Chaouen -Sun 20 Feb 2011: Breakfast, OL in Chaouen (Middle), free afternoon, guided visit in Chaouen, dinner & sleep in Chauen -Mon 21 Feb 2011: Breakfast, OL in Chaouen (Supersprint), Bus to Tetouan, guided visit in Tetouan, bus to Ceuta, Ferry from Ceuta to Algeciras at 18h30
Terrain description- CEUTA (Spain): eucaliptus forest in the natural park of the city (you can see Gibraltar-Europe from Africa!!) - CHAOUEN north (Morocco): pine forest very rich in rock and cliff details, some semiopen areas. - CHAOUEN "Medina" (Morocco): old city center full of plazas, narrow blue coloured streets and some water falls, really a technical challenge!! AND OF COURSE...EXOTIC ORIENTEERING!!
Training possibilitiesInternational Training CentrO Parque Natural de la Brena - Barbate (Cadiz) -25sq kms of quality O-maps at walking distance -150 permanent controls in pure nature -SI trainings during major training weeks -flexible accomodation; self-catering or half board -sweet climate next to the Atlantic Ocean Does this sound good? Then come and visit our newly established International Training CentrO, at the magnificent micro-dunes of the nature park "Pinar de la Brena", located between Barbate and (the Meca of Orienteering) Canos de Meca, Cadiz province, Andalucia. After 10 years of experience in organizing O-camps in Spain and Portugal, we considered Barbate costline as perfect base for top level training & leisure in a mild winter climate surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and great Andalucia's culture and food.
