When you book a sailing trip, you might notice that the itinerary is often described as ‘dynamic.’ But what does that mean? Simply put, it means that while we have a plan, that plan isn’t set in stone. Here’s why:
The Role of Nature
In sailing, we’re at the mercy of the weather and sea conditions. This isn’t like driving a car where you can stick to a strict timetable. Our main guide is Mother Nature, and we aim to work with her, not against her.
Our skippers know the sea well and always have a solid plan for each voyage. However, they’re also experts in making adjustments as needed. Whether it’s a sudden change in weather or unexpected sea conditions, our captains have the experience to make quick and safe decisions. In fact captains and skippers may well have alternative plans prepared in advance they can put into use as soon as required. It’s a skill that forms a core part of their ability.

Just because the itinerary is flexible doesn’t mean we’re casual about reaching our final port. We have a strong track record of getting to our destinations on time. But how we get there might vary, depending on the conditions we encounter.
No Guarantees, Just Experience
Our voyage descriptions are based on past trips and give a good idea of what you can expect. However, they’re not a guarantee. Things can change, and part of the adventure is adapting to those changes.
So, when you join us, come prepared for an adventure and willing to go with the flow. You’ll be in expert hands, and you’ll get to experience the true essence of sailing.All Voyages
