Itinerary

This popular sailing route will take you past dramatic cliffs and rocky coastlines, visiting beautiful, historic towns, and anchoring in tranquil rivers and hidden coves, with endless footpaths, history and wildlife to enjoy. Sailing further west, the Isles of Scilly wait to be explored, an archipelago of 140 micro islands that lay off the Cornish coast, home to glorious beaches and waters as blue as the Caribbean.

Accommodation

The yacht itself is an expedition yacht that was previously a round the world race boat. The accommodation on the yacht is comfortable, warm and spacious. Each bunk is 6’7″ long and has its own USB charger and light. Sleeping is in one 8 birth cabin. There are two toilets, a shower, hot water and lots of food!

Meals

We eat very well on board and we will take as much fresh fruit and veg as we can. Ocean sailing is an exercise in using food creatively but you can expect lovely warm meals, as much as you can eat, freshly baked bread and more. We can cater for most diets and have loads of veggies on board. If you have any severe allergies you must check with us before booking.

Who is this trip for?

AGE & EXPERIENCE
These adventure sailing holidays are open to anyone aged 18 – 70 years. No previous sailing experience is required for this route.

FITNESS TO SAIL
We believe that as many people as possible should be able to head out to sea and have a great adventure. However, it is essential for everyone’s safety that you are in a fit enough state to be on board.

Ability to complete the five exercises is a pre-requisite for joining as a crew member.

Be able to lift 2 full bags of shopping five times, ten jumps with raised arms, stand on each leg for a minimum of five seconds, ten squats, ten step ups.

The exercises are not designed to be physically taxing and almost everyone should be able to complete them. Rather they are in place to check that you have the stability and basic physical condition to be on-board. If when you join the vessel the skipper believes you are not capable of completing these exercises, you will probably not be allowed to embark.

If you have any doubts at all about your ability to complete these exercises safely, you must contact your doctor before attempting them.

MEDICAL DECLARATION

Four weeks before your trip start date, you will be sent final joining instructions by the operator. At this time you will be asked to complete the operator’s medical declaration.

At the time of booking, it is your responsibility to be sure that you will be able to pass all the criteria at the start date of your trip. If you cannot pass the criteria you will probably be refused permission to board.

Tour operator

We love this sailing company’s ethos – to help people do three things: sail, train and explore. They are passionate about enabling people to experience life out on the open ocean, building sailing skills and exploring some beautiful countries. After years of training people to become professional sailors, and having covered thousands of miles between them, the company Founders realised that so many people had dreamt of setting off across an ocean, but hadn’t the skills, the boat or crew to make those dreams come true.

The company now runs expeditions on a specialised 60’ yacht to some of the most exciting places out there – often largely inaccessible from land. With no previous sailing experience required, the two instructors will guide you every step of the way as you develop your sailing skills, maybe even earning an RYA qualification during the week. Exploring on land as they go is just as important and the bikes and a kayak mean you can head off and enjoy everything there is to see along the route.
