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.
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.
