NO SAILING EXPERIENCE NECESSARY

Start 2019 in style, on board our 72ft Challenger Yacht in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean all whilst helping a good cause – proceeds from our Caribbean voyages help get disadvantaged young people on board in the UK for sail training.

Climb aboard in Antigua, where you’ll spend the first evening on board settling in, getting to know your fellow voyagers and learning how to safely sail this stunning vessel, as part of its working crew.  Remember this is an adventure, you’ll be helping sail from island to island whilst also getting the chance to relax and enjoy the magic of the Caribbean.  A crew dinner will help kick off the conversation before you spend 10 nights on board sailing the Caribbean Sea to take in the beauty of the other Caribbean Islands, stopping off in various bays and harbours on the way while heading towards  Grenada.
