Yes, there is no minimum or maximum ages for charter.
There is no maximum age. The minimum age is 12 but under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
No, you won’t pay any more.
Yes. Around 30 per cent of our guests have never been on a trip like this before. We will, literally, show you the ropes. On our cruises, if you don’t want to learn to sail, you are welcome to come along and just enjoy the scenery, or find a comfortable place to sit and get stuck in to some holiday reading.
All food, bedding, wet weather gear and safety equipment.
All our vessels accept individual bookings for cruises, Royal Yachting Association courses, and DofE. Solo travellers make up the majority of our customers, but we also welcome couples, families and groups of friends. Our guests are of all nationalities, ethnicities, genders, and ages. We have a great
community of followers on our Facebook page. However, Sail Training voyages tend to be taken as group bookings.
‘Hands on’ sailing is what these voyages are all about. You will literally become a member of the crew on board. Whether you want an epic sailing adventure, or a short weekend break, we can offer expert advice based on two decades of experience. Though if you would prefer to just relax and watch the world go by, that is also fine.
If you are looking for the perfect place to grow your sailing skills we offer a range of RYA Sailing Courses and qualifications from RYA Start Yachting to Day Skipper.
Our on board chefs cater for all dietary needs, just please make us aware at the time of booking.
In most cases yes. Please declare these at the time of booking. With certain, more serious conditions, we may provide you with a letter for your GP to sign stating he, or she, is happy for you to sail.
We are a not-for-profit organisation. Our holidays provide a great way to keep these vessels in use for future generations. The money generated from our cruises is then used to subsidise voyages for disadvantaged people and keep the historic boats seaworthy.
No, we run exclusive “sail training” weeks for this.
Generally no. It is likely you will be tied-up in a different port or anchorage each evening. There are exceptions, for instance when we are completing a Channel crossing and for these nights we will create an on board watch system.
Our large vessels were built to go to sea in rough weather and have been doing so for generations. In the unlikely scenario you do become unwell our specially trained staff will look after you and advise which medicines or food to digest to get you feeling better as soon as possible. Even the worst cases of seasickness tend to pass after 24 hours, once you have your “sea legs”.
Yes, for no extra cost, you can reserve small, medium, large, and extra large waterproof trousers and oilskin jackets.
We look after you for the entire duration of your visit. So, if you left your wallet at home, you would still have a great week. However, it is likely that you will be given time to explore ashore so it might be wise to bring some spending money. For our adult cruises we also open an on board bar when we are tied up, or at anchor, in the evening.
There is no upper age limit on any of our voyages and we can take people on board from a very young age. Please call our office team if you a specific query.
For our Sail Training weeks, if the participants cannot afford the full voyage cost, we do provide subsidies to ensure disadvantaged people can go sailing. Please email or call our office team to find out more.
