Ep. 05 - How to Approach Rabat, Morocco

December 24, 2018

One of the reasons that sailors avoid Morocco on their way to the Canary Islands is the challenging approaches into many of the few marinas Morocco has to offer. Many are located inside rivers on the open, unprotected coast line. At the sand bars that lie outside of the river mouths, the ocean swell is building up and breaking waves may make the entrance into the river impossible. Also the position, depths and shape of the sandbars are changing constantly. In this video we want to guide you step-by-step through the approach into Marina Bouregreg in Rabat, Morocco. And you will see, if you plan it carefully, it will not be a headache at all.
