What to bring?

We provide lifejackets and waterproofs for you to use during your time on board.

We recommend wearing a good pair of shoes with robust and good grip to stop you from slipping on the decks. Boots are not a necessity but your shoes might get wet with water coming over the deck. 

It is always worth packing a warm jumper and depending on the weather wooly hat/sun hat. Sunglasses are also alwasy useful. 

Capture the day on a camera but make sure you keep it safe. 

Pack all your belongings in a small, secure bag that can be placed down below and wont spill everywhere while we are sailing. 

Do I need experience?

  No experience is necessary. All ages are welcome. 

The permanent crew onboard will offer you all the guidance you need to get involved with sailing the boat during the day. 

Do I need to be very active?

A normal level of fitness is all that is needed to fully enjoy the day. We do require you to be able to climb a 6ft vertical ladder to ensure your safety while onboard.
