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.


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

Who is this trip for?

  • Solo travellers
  • Couples
  • People looking for an adventure
  • Ok for people without any sailing experience!


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?

This totally depends on wind and weather, and the itinerary for the voyage. It’s no good planning to go somewhere if the wind is in exactly the wrong direction – or if the forecast says the wind would be wrong for coming back!

What if I get ill?

At least one of the staff will be trained in dealing with illness or injury at sea; and we’ll get you to a doctor ashore as quickly as possible if necessary. You do need to tell us in advance about any condition you already have. We’ve had people on the boat with anything from mild asthma to serious medical conditions. Bring any medication, inhalers (and spares) you need – and tell the staff what you are taking. We need to know of any serious medical conditions before you book to ensure we can provide you with the best experience possible.
