Other Events

Free

A fantastic five day milebuilding adventure and a taster for ocean sailing. The 280 miles, non stop, could be done in 60hrs so if there is an opportunity to stop, the options could be St Lucia or Union Island. Your skipper will decide, but the boat needs to be in Antigua to take part in the RORC Caribbean 600 Race. 

 

Why not tag this delivery after the Grenada Regatta or before the RORC Caribbean 600 Race. 

 

 

 

Starts: 6th February 2018, but the boat will already be in Grenada having taken part in the Grenada Regatta. 

Finishes: Saturday 10th February 2018

Your skipper is RYA qualified and you can take advantage of her knowledge. It would be expected that you are already a sailor at atleast competent crew standard because this requires you to be able to 'stand a watch'. You will improve your sailing and helming skills. Whatever we do we ensure you'll be safe and have fun.

 

Pre-Course Requirements

Your skipper is RYA qualified and you can take advantage of her knowledge. It would be expected that you are already a sailor at atleast competent crew standard because this requires you to be able to 'stand a watch'. You will improve your sailing and helming skills. Whatever we do we ensure you'll be safe and have fun.

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.
