View Dates

A mile-maker hands on sailing voyage on board a stunning and luxurious Oyster 62 sailing yacht. This is grown up sailing, with a splash of sightseeing and adventure!

This passage is a great way to get into ocean sailing and experience life onboard for days at a time. Setting sail from Plymouth we will sail to Fowey or Falmouth for a familiarisation and crew shake down, before heading out down the English channel and across the Bay of Biscay. This 3 or 4 day passage brings us to the Rias of Northern Spain, known for fine seafood, tapas and Rioja. After exploring for a few days we head down the Portugese coast to Cascais. Ports enroute may include Camaret-sur-Mer, A Coruña and Baiona depending on the weather and timings. This is grown up sailing, with a splash of sightseeing and adventure.

Trip notes


£2,000 p.p. (the VIP aft double cabin is available for a 20% surcharge)

Min age



There are two double cabins with private shower and heads. The aft VIP is available for a 20% surcharge. There are two twin cabins, one forward and one aft and there is another cabin in the forepeak which is very comfortable for one person but has the option for two . There is a day head midships for use by those in the twin cabins and the large saloon offers plenty of room for relaxing in comfort.


Food is taken very seriously and there is no problem with special requests. A typical day starts with a choice of healthy or cooked options – typically porridge, eggs, bacon, toast, cereals and fruit. The lunch menu features fresh salads, wraps and sandwiches or something warming if its cold. Evening meals are delicious and home cooked – using fresh local produce where possible – usually it is a hearty single course with the occasional feature dessert.

In between meals times you won’t go hungry, fruit and snacks are freely available, and if the conditions and the mood are right for some home baking there is hope for a morning pastry with your cofee or a cake with your afternoon tea.

Water and hot drinks are freely available at any time of day, as are fruit, biscuits and snacks. Alcohol is not included but can be purchased on board and consumed in moderation. Alternatively you may bring your own.

Tour operator

We love that the founders Dan and Em turned their adventure lifestyle dream into an opportunity for others to experience the joy of adventure sailing.

Their worldwide luxury adventure sailing holidays for groups and individuals has included 3 circumnavigations, and destinations as remote as Antarctica and the South Pacific atolls. Currently cruising closer to home the 21/22 program includes Scotland cruising, Biscay and Atlantic crossings and Caribbean active holidays.

The boat is an elegant, fast, responsive and comfortable luxury yacht - an Oyster 62.

Down below the cabins are beautifully appointed and a well thought out layout means she is suitable for a variety of groups and individuals. On deck is a large, safe and family friendly cockpit, a lounging deck and transom seats. There is always somewhere comfortable to be, either for socialising or some quiet reflection.

Crewed by highly experienced charter skippers Dan and Emily, they are relaxed, fun and friendly, making everyone feel comfortable and at ease.

The boat is impeccably maintained, while safety and making guests feel secure is paramount.
