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.
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.
How do I get there?
Each trip listing gives advice on how to get to and from your adventure. Usually, any travel to and from the vessel is your responsibility; we’ve teamed up with a global travel operator to make this easier for you. If you are unsure of anything regarding travel, please contact us to help you.
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.
