Trip notes

£3000 twin en-suite (per person)

There are twin ensuite cabins, a 6 berth shared forepeak with shared bathroom and a larger 4 berth cabin with shared bathroom. Each cabin has a porthole so if you are on the top bunk you can watch the starlit horizon from the comfort of your bed. Each cabin also has an electricity point (2 pin European socket). Bedding is provided but you will need to bring your own towels.

All meals are included onboard –  daily breakfast, lunch and evening meal

If you have any special dietary requirements it is we need to know this prior to the voyage in order that we can try to accommodate your requirements in the planned menus.

I’ve never been sailing before and I’m worried about not knowing what to do.

The majority of people who sail with us have never sailed before. Don’t worry! The crew will explain things and guide you through everything you need to know to be able to sail the boat. You will get the opportunity to learn lots of new skills and have fun at the same time.

What about toilets and showers?

There are toilets and showers on board. There are ensuite cabins and a shared bathroom in the forepeak. When you arrive at the boat you will be given a housekeeping brief and using the toilets and showers will be explained.

How fast does the boat go?

Our average sailing speed is about 6 knots (nautical miles per hour) – that’s almost 7 land miles per hour. The maximum speed under sail can be over 10 knots. Under engine, the maximum is actually less: only 5 or 6 knots. But sailing is more fun than motoring, so even in light winds we often sail – albeit rather slowly!
