As a beginner what type of voyage should I choose?
Some people like to try one of our UK Sailing Weekends first before committing to a longer sailing holiday but there is no obligation to do so and many first time sailors go straight for something more challenging.
If you find it difficult to choose or are not sure what any of our voyages will involve just give us a ring on 07977 594649. Remember, because we are not an agency, booking for many boats you will be speaking directly to the people you will actually be sailing with.

Sail Training involves learning how to safely handle ropes, some basic knots and using winches among other things. Why we need these skills is to be able to carry out manoeuveres under sail or power.
Full knowledge of the why is not essential. Dip into these Learning To Sail articles only if you want to.
Most people just learn to sail when they are onboard.
