Join us for a fun exciting sail across the Channel, probably overnight on Thursday, arriving in St Vaast, a picturesque French fishing port famous for its oysters late morning/early afternoon on Friday. On Saturday we will round Cap De Barfleur to spend the night in Cherbourg, cross back across the Channel probably on Sunday to Yarmouth, then to Gosport on Monday arriving back by mid afternoon.

The final passage plan will depend on the wind and weather. We can guarantee that we will tailor the trip to the conditions to ensure a quality sailing experience.

This is an ideal mile builder for those requiring sea miles and night hours. There is the opportunity to skipper a 60 mile passage under supervision for anyone who would like this chance. Just call one of us to discuss.

Some previous sailing experience is desirable to join this trip - we hope you will want to get involved in all aspects of sailing and navigation.

Our price of £330 includes breakfasts, snack lunches, soft drinks, fuel, gas and marina fees. We provide pillows - just bring a pillowcase, a sleeping bag, warm windproof clothing, non marking footwear and personal toiletries. Don’t forget your passport and EHIC card.

Our yacht Muritai is a very comfortable MCA coded Dufour Grande Large 385 with heating, a state of the art chart plotter and full safety equipment. She sleeps 8 people but we sail with 6 to ensure everyone’s comfort and to give you more opportunity to be involved.

We ask for a deposit of £100 to secure your place and the balance 28days before the event
