What else to expect?

Going aloft

While most of the sails can be handled and controlled from deck level, some require climbing the mast to work them. You can also climb for fun and to perfect your skills. The main mast’s head is 30m above the water. Just imagine how good the view is from the top….

Disabled members of crew will also be able to go aloft with the help of other crew members.

  • All meals and drinks on board (except drinks and snacks from the bar)
  • All bedding
  • Heavy-duty wet weather gear and boots
  • Deck harnesses
  • Climbing harness
  • Visits to restaurants, museums, galleries etc during the trip.
  • Drinks and snacks from the bar.
  • Travel to and from the vessel.

Sailing on equal terms

The vessel has been designed and built to enable people of all physical abilities to sail the ship on as near equal terms as possible.

On board there is a ‘buddy system”. People are buddied up, usually in able-bodied/physically disabled pairs, to give help and assistance as and when needed. The system, which is a two-way process, has been in operation since the ship’s first voyage and epitomises the inclusive ethos of the ship. It has led to many enduring friendships contributing to the voyage crew’s enjoyment of the voyage. The permanent crew decide the pairings shortly before sailing.

Open to people with severe disabilities

The ship is designed to cater for people with severe disabilities. People with severe disabilities will come with their own buddy, someone who knows them, is used to caring for them and is familiar with their needs.

Speak with us to discuss your requirements.

  • Open to beginner sailors.
  • Open to solo travellers.
