    Important Please Read

    Spending a long period on-board a yacht in a relatively confined space with unfamiliar crew is a challenge and should not be undertaken lightly. Please consider this before deciding to join us on our Round Britain voyage. Whilst undertaking the passage around Britain everybody on board will be fully expected to take a full and active role in the running of the vessel including sail hoists, helping with preparing food, cleaning the yacht, as well as helping to come alongside and secure the yacht. If getting hands on is not your thing then this adventure is probably not for you. This trip will also involve some overnight sails where watch systems will be set out for the crew and everyone will be expected to take part.

    Your safety is our highest priority so we insist that whilst on deck life jackets are worn at all times. whilst on passage and to meet our timetable we will be using the engines as required to meet our programme. 

    We may decide to change our ports and departure times at short notice when weather dictates.

    We take your safety and that of the vessel extremely seriously and as such we reserve the right to alter or amend itineraries in the case of bad weather, tide or Foreign Office/Maritime Agencies advice.
