Trip notes

Under 25 Years: £400. Over 25 Years: £500

All the cabins have bunks and a space to store your personal gear. You will be sharing a cabin with up to 5 other people depending on which cabin you are in so it is important to keep your personal space clean and tidy. We provide sheets and pillows for your bunk. You will need to bring a sleeping bag. Please take care when we are at sea to properly stow all items in your cabin. Even the smallest item can cause injury, or become damaged. All cabins have a sink and have a radiator to keep your cabin warm on those colder days and nights.

There are UK plug sockets in all the cabins. We ask that you do not leave items charging or plugged in when you are not in the cabin as this causes a fire risk.

Meals on board are daily breakfast, lunch and evening meal
Refreshments throughout the day
If you have any special dietary requirements we need to know this prior to the voyage in order that we can try to accommodate your requirements in the planned menus.

What about toilets and showers?

There are toilets and showers on board. When you arrive at the boat you will be given a housekeeping brief and using the toilets and showers will be explained.

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.
Where will we go?
