Generally, no – beginners are as welcome as experienced sailors on the majority of the trips we list. To be sure, read the description of your trip thoroughly; if particular sailing ability is required, it will be specified there.
What do I need to wear?
Each trip listing has a suggested kit list. This is a good starting point, but you are welcome to bring additional kit.
Do I need specialist sailing insurance?
Generally yes, but we recommend checking with your current travel insurer. We can also direct you to appropriate insurers who will be able to provide the right cover. Contact us for our recommendations.
Can I bring a hard suitcase?
Ideally not. Space on boats is always limited and you don’t want to end up sharing you bunk with your suitcase! Soft luggage such as duffel bags and rucksacks are your best bet.
