Is this for me?
This is not a beach holiday, but it’s also far more fun! You don’t need any prior sailing experience or physical prowess – just a sense of adventure and a willingness to muck in.
Will I sail in a storm?
Not unless we can help it! While the yachts can handle pretty much anything at sea, the itineraries are set to allow time to sit out any rough weather in port and then take advantage of the best weather windows. The coastal sailing in this area is generally fairly gentle and sheltered.
I have dietary issues. Can I still come?
Probably yes, as most diets can be accommodated. However, it is worth checking with the operator before booking.
Do I need Experience?
No previous sailing experience is required
Do people come alone?
Almost everyone comes alone. Couples and groups are very welcome and we do get them. On the whole, however, most crew join solo and so if you are coming alone, you will be one of the crowd!
How many people are on board?
Except in exceptional circumstances, we limit the crew size to 9 plus two instructors. This means that there are enough people to sale the boat safely, but you will still have lots of time helming, navigating, trimming sails and such like.
