Do I need to have sailed before?
No. We do not require previous sailing experience. However, you should be aware that a crossing of the Atlantic Ocean is a major adventure and you will be away from land for many days at at time. If you have not sailed before, you will need to be confident that this is a challenge you are up for!
What is the average crew like?
We get a mix of people from all around the world. Most crew have a few weeks of prior sailing under their belt but are by no means expert sailors. They join us to learn, to have fun and for some incredible sailing. There is usually a 50:50 mix of men and women and the average age is 47, but we get people joining us from 18 years through to 75 years!
I am vegetarian. Is that ok?
Absolutely. Quite a few of us are vegetarian too and you will eat as well as you ever do on board – maybe better!
Will I be safe?
We are Europe’s leading ocean and adventure sailing company. We run the best, safest yachts that are highly specialised and have circled the world three times. We also have the most experienced instructors running them. They are full of safety equipment and satellite communications equipment. The safety culture on board is second to none.
