There are approximately 250 other boats sailing to the sunshine, so....why choose us?! Here are just a few really good reasons :)
-As the only all-girl crew to do this (10 times!) we guarantee we have seen all the issues that might arise and are very knowledgeable about what to do.
-We have had the most amazing feedback from these many crews, all of which is available to read on Facebook or on our website - or read the many public blogs!
-We are very well respected and are proud to say we have won three of the top awards that are possible from the ARC (see below)
-As an established RYA sailing school - we are extremely safety aware. Our boats are inspected regularly with maintenance part of our syllabus at the school.
-You will be guided by our years of experience as Yachtmaster Instructors. Our skippers are awesome. One went on to be the only female Round The World clipper skipper to win a leg, another has won the youngest skipper award twice and of whom we are expecting great things - and another is our Principal who now guides the events from the sidelines when she's not skippering one of our boats herself.
-You will be guided by two qualified sailors and the skipper will have crossed the ocean before. You will be hard pressed to find a more accomplished set of coaches for your adventure.
-We have top of the range self-inflating lifejackets with hoods, lifelines, deck mounted liferaft, EPIRB, grab bags, satellite phone - and an enormous list of other safety items on board.
-We will be tracked along the route to St. Lucia so your loved ones can keep their eyes on you.
-To give even more reassurance, we follow the ARC guidelines very closely to ensure we are fully prepared for any eventuality. The ARC committee also do a thorough check to make sure every boat is suitable for crossing.
