• Longer 5+ day voyage.
•Visit the rest of the UK or explore abroad.
• No sailing experience needed.
The Offshore Explorer is our most varied type of voyage. Depending on our programme, these can last anywhere between 5 and 10 days and start/finish anywhere in the UK or Europe. This makes it hard to be specific about the itinerary.
These voyages usually involve a mixture of short day sails, exploring the English or European coast, and some longer passages where you will be at sea and possibly out of sight of land overnight. During this time you will work in two teams (or “watches” to use the sailing term) to sail the boat. You will of course also be cooking, eating, sleeping, and having fun whilst the boat is at sea.
The longer passages make these trips slightly more adventurous than our East Coast Explorers.
These trips also count towards your RYA Start Yachting, Competent Crew, and Watch Leader Certificates, and will add sea-miles to the log book of anyone keen to progress through the RYA yachting syllabus.
