GETTING THERE (AND BACK)
On this trip, you will be signed on the ship as genuine members of the crew. We take a fairly leisurely cruise up or down the Eastern Caribbean Island chain, stopping at several idyllic locations en-route. You will have the opportunity to take part in all aspects of sailing the ship from hauling on lines to steering a course to, of course, making a cuppa for your shipmates!
At the beginning of the trip you will be allocated to a “watch” headed by one of our full-time professional crew and each ‘watch’ takes its turn at running the ship. There will be a chance to make an overnight passage or two when the watch system really comes into its own. One watch on, one watch sleeping (or star gazing/reading or just generally chillin’).
These are really fantastic trips for experienced and complete novice sailors alike. Good ‘mile building ‘ for those going for exams and some tuition is available from one of our experienced RYA instructors (and examiners!). Give and take as much as you want to from these trips. We promise your voyage will be a memorable experience and you will often make lifelong shipmates.We look forward to meeting you and ‘signing you on’. What are you waiting for?
