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 about currency fluctuations?
Trips are priced in the operator’s local currency and we charge you a conversion to that amount correct at the day of charging. See Payments for more details.
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.
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.
