Hi - this is us - John and Su - over the last 12 years we have sailed tens of thousands of miles on our schooner Trinovante.

Trinovante has a reputation for a relaxed, fun and friendly atmosphere onboard where everyone plays a full role in sailing the ship. We have a strong emphasis on sail training and teaching good seamanship skills.

It's also a fantastic way to travel and experience other countries. On board a traditional schooner you are welcomed as part of the scene wherever you go.

Don't just take our word for it, read what other people have written about our Sailing Holidays or view their contributions to our sailing holidays blog and newsletters.

About John

John trained in engineering, has worked in steel fabrication, as a yacht delivery skipper and in the offshore industry. For a number of years he sailed extensively in an engineless 50ft ketch.

Since 2002 he has been the skipper of Trinovante.


About Su

Su was involved in setting up the Bromley by Bow centre in the East End of London, taught for ILEA and worked as a carpenter.

She now runs SchoonerSail and sails onboard as mate.

Su and John have been living and working together for the last 24 years.
