Below are a few common enquiries that we receive. Should you not find the answer to your query below, or if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Q. Do I need experience?
A. No sailing experience is necessary as we have a competent crew who can sail the ship. However, we do encourage the guests to get involved as much or as little as they wish.

Q. What should I bring?
A. We have limited luggage storage space and typically guests bring more luggage than they need. Water proof clothing is provided free of charge for use on the ship.

Q. Will I get sea sick?
A. It is not uncommon to get sea sick in rough weather so the skipper will try to plan a route to avoid it. If you do begin to feel unwell, just let a crew member know so that we can look after you accordingly – especially if you are on medication.

Q. What is the accommodation like?
