Europe Iceland - a travel guide on the World Cruising and Sailing Wiki
On-line guidebook for boats that sail to the European Island in the Channel of Mozambique? Europe Island (French: Île Europa) is a 28 km deep situated island in the Mozambique Channel, about one third of the way from the south of Madagascar to the south of Mozambique, under 22°22?S?S 40°21?E. This island is encircled by a 9 km² large lake and is covered by corals and a marshland.
The European Island is a protected area and is home to migrating sea birds. It owes its name to the English vessel Europa, which came to the island in 1774. Remains and tombs on the island of Europe bear witness to several attempted settlements from the 1860s to the 1920s. Here are a few examples. This island, occupied by a department of Réunion, has a weather base and is frequented by researchers.
Europe is not inhabited, but it is a formal part of the "Îles Eparses" (scattered islands) of the TAAF (Terres Australes et Antarctiques Françaises) area. Specify your regional or archipelago meteorological condition or point to another site (region or archipelago) that meets these requirements. The section does not cover most islets, if it does, please do so.
However, they can also enumerate small islets next to this or one or two of their neighbours. Where there is no check-in harbour on the island, skip this section, otherwise provide information about the check-in facility - where to stop, where to drop off your goods, where to apply for migration and custom clearance, etc. Please note: Please indicate which harbours are a receiving harbour.
