Life on Board

What to expect on your holiday

Morning
Wake up to find tea and coffee on the saloon table, head on up to admire the surrounding scenery while the smell of breakfast being prepared makes its way out of the gallery to be enjoyed around the large saloon table. Your skipper will discuss the plans for departure, using a navigational chart to show you your position and where you will soon be going. After gathering up on deck, it is time to set some sails and head off. As the day progresses you will be invited to helm the vessel and help adjust the sails to match the weather conditions. Tea, coffee and snacks will be handed out to make sure you never go hungry or get thirsty.

 

Afternoon
Lunch is served! Time to take a short break from the sailing, then either get stuck back in, or find a quiet spot to relax. Some shorter passages might leave you with some time to explore ashore. Once the vessel is tied-up for the night, you will be given time to have a shower, go for a stroll or a couple of drinks before dinner.

 

Evening
Everyone is gathering around the table for an evening meal and a glass of wine. The crew sit with the guests, chat about the day’s events and begin to make plans for the following day, or head in to town together to find a nice pub.
