Details

Explore the beautiful peaceful Medway and the East Coast in winter. A chance to brush up your skills and maybe learn some new ones with a friendly skipper (me!) and first mate Sam (who is just back from a voyage on Clipper 2018). Check out her amazing blog here; https://shewhosails.com
Look out for wildlife on the marshy foreshore, wrecks in the estuary and spectacular industrial landscapes. Tides and weather permitting we could visit remote creek anchorages, the island port of Queenborough, or the historic harbours of Ramsgate or Burnham.
Skill level- minimum: RYA competent crew or equivalent sailing experience.
Cost-£150 plus shared kitty for food/fuel/marina fees.
Our comfortable, spacious Jeanneau has 8 berths- we will be taking 6 max. Plus heating, modern chart plotter and nav instruments.
Some night sailing is likely (as it gets dark at around 4pm!), plus river and coastal. Opportunities ashore for a meal/pub visit/exploring. More details from [masked]
