Who Comes?

Solo Travellers who enjoy company

Most of our sailors come as individuals. Some are used to solo travelling, while others are taking the plunge for the first time. Sailing is not for everyone and we often have ‘half a couple’, whilst the other half does their own thing. We welcome couples and groups of friends too. What most would-be sailors have in common is that they are sociable and happy to meet new people.

What Our Customers Say

Escapists and Explorers

We choose sailing locations more for their wildlife, natural scenery and idyllic anchorages, than facilities ashore. Our skippers will awake the natural explorer in you. Be the first to row ashore and make footprints in the sand, sail silently under towering Norwegian cliffs, swim in a secret cove or enjoy crossing the last unspoilt wilderness – the open sea. We are not complete purists though. If there is a pub to be found, someone will find it !

New Challenges & Sea Changes

Learn a specific sailing skill, challenge yourself to do something new, or sailing to a bucket list destination, or just come and see what evolves! A surprising number of people run away to sea to re-appraise their lives ( it worked for us ! ). Never underestimate the power of a sailing voyage to change your life.

Our beautiful sailing vessels are the ‘hook’ but you may also find the camaraderie and tribe of like minded souls you have been looking for. We hope you will find new friends, enjoy the company of our skippers and crews.

Romantic Souls

All walks of life make up our motley crews; Craftsmen who love wooden boats, Patrick O’Brien readers escaping their armchair, musicians and artists looking for inspiration, climbers that feel at home on the top gallant yard, those of us forced to work indoors with restless souls that respond to the ‘gulls cry’…
