We are again running one of our most popular trips!

Join us late afternoon on Wednesday 6th May for a fun exciting sail across the Channel, probably overnight, arriving late morning on Thursday in St Vaast, a picturesque French fishing port famous for its oysters. Explore St Vaast.
On Friday we set sail around Cap De Barfleur to spend the night in Cherbourg.
On Saturday we plan to sail back across the Channel probably to Yarmouth, then to Gosport on Sunday, 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 £355 includes breakfasts, snack lunches, soft drinks, one evening meal on board, fuel, gas and marina fees. We provide pillows - just bring a pillowcase, a sleeping bag, warm windproof clothing, non marking footwear and personal toiletries.

Our yacht Muritai is a very comfortable 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
