Sailing Journeys for GAP Year, Mid Life Crisis & Career Breaks

Are you ready to run away to sea for a adult career break or a GAP year before university. It doesn’t matter if you are having a mid life crisis, want to live life differently, save the planet, or just travel the world. You know when its time for a change. 

Classic Sailing offers wanderlust with wind and water. You don’t have to be a sailor, but you will soon become one. Occasionally we Circumnavigations around the whole world, but we have a huge variety of ocean sailing legs that get you to exciting land destinations too. We have Trans Atlantic voyages both North and South of the Equator, long passages to and from South America and the Caribbean, and sailing voyages that help others or save the planet.

A month or more on a tall ship or traditional boat gives a unique time to reflect and talk with people of all ages and nationalities, as well as the challenge of living as part of a close shipboard community sailing one of the last great wildernesses.
