Summer Holiday Cruises 2017

Following the success of our Summer Holiday Cruises 2001- 2016 we are again offering longer trips during the summer months to the Channel Islands and France. Additionally in 2017 we are offering the opportunity to participate in the Round the Island Race & Easter Channel Dash to Cherbourg & Alderney.

7 days of terrific sailing and a Cross-Channel experience will be the main reason for joining.  However the Summer Holiday Cruises will also give crews a chance to explore the countryside around the many historic towns in these beautiful areas and the opportunity to enjoy the local cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere.
Low-key instruction will of course be available, as well as the opportunity to build mileage for RYA qualifications (You may also gain a Competent Crew Qualification). Additionally, there will be plenty of chances to test your navigation and pilotage skills in challenging new areas.

To maintain good comfort levels, crews will be restricted to five, plus a professional skipper. Included in the holiday are the fees for the yacht and skipper, planned on-board meals, safety equipment, moorings and accommodation on board. Meals ashore (usually two) are not included. Waterproofs can be loaned free of charge for the cruise.

  • £495 May & September
