EXAMPLE SCHEDULE

  1. LEG 1
    Falmouth - Isles of Scilly
    Following a welcome reception, introductions, safety briefing and itinerary discussion, our first day will be spent learning about the yacht whilst staying inshore with a night at Falmouth Marina. The next day we will set sail along the beautiful Cornish coastline filled with sun-kissed bays, dinky fishing ports and rugged headlands.
  2. LEG 2
    Isle of Scilly - Milford Haven
    Arriving at the Isles of Scilly we will moor in one of the local ports depending upon wind and tide conditions. Throughout this leg everybody will get the chance to practise different sailing skills taking turns at the helm, hoisting and trimming sails and learning as we go. You will start to get involved with planning tidal calculations and the managing of the yacht as we sail on the winds of the Atlantic Ocean. Relax and enjoy the sights with various sailing skills practiced and refined as we go around the sail past south-east England
  3. LEG 3
    Milford Haven - Dublin
    From Milford Haven it is a beat Northwest over the notorious Irish Sea. Working the tides and weather for the offshore sail up to Dublin will give the crew the chance to put the first part of training into practice while learning navigation as we go. A well deserved beer or glass of wine and a tasty meal ashore awaits in Ireland.
