A fantastic two to four day milebuilding adventure - this delivery can be completed in around 48 hours but up to 4 days may be used if the skipper and crew decide to extend the trip a little! 

A great opportunity to gain some more miles for those working towards higher RYA levels or just looking to gain some open ocean sailing practice.

Consider tacking this on to the end of the RORC 600 or before an event in St Lucia!

About The Event

A 4 day delivery trip during which will get our boat back from Antigua to St Lucia after the RORC 600.

If you are looking to complete your Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster and need to gain some extra miles then this would be the perfect trip for you. It is also a great opportunity to get a brief introduction to open ocean sailing.

Your skipper is RYA qualified and you can take advantage of her knowledge, either learning the basics of sailing, wind awareness, parts of the boat and of course how to sail it or concentrating on particular areas you wish to practice! You can be as involved as you wish, whether taking the helm, changing a sail, pulling on a few sheets or simply sitting back and enjoying the atmosphere! Whatever we do we ensure you'll be safe and have fun.

 

Pre-Course Requirements

As these trips often take us out into the open ocean and may involve some night sailing, it is recommended that you have some previous sailing experience preferably to RYA Competent Crew level or equivalent. Do talk to us about options and itinerary for each event.

The boat

We mostly coach on yachts of between 37 and 41ft. Our yachts have been specifically chosen as they are easy to handle, great for learning! There is no denying us girls sometimes don't have the physical strength of the boys but with our technical ability and a well-chosen yacht we can do just as well. You will usually find yourself aboard an Élan 37, Jeanneau 37 or a Beneteau 40.7. All of your time will be spent living as crew-mates on your yacht.  Most of the yachts have 9/10 berths with 3 cabins and a saloon so the boats will normally have 2 persons in each cabin i.e. 6 - this is always the case for an RYA course, MAX 6 persons on-board. On some events e.g. races we use the saloon which can sleep an additional 2-4 person.
