Voyage highlights

  • Celebrate the new year with a nautical-themed fancy dress party
  • Visit Cowes and Poole
  • Build sailing knowledge
  • Make friends and have fun!

Make it a New Year’s Eve to remember and sail into 2022 on this four-night New Year’s adventure voyage.
During the voyage, you'll work towards your RYA Start Yachting qualification, which is the perfect introduction to sail training for novices. And by the end of the voyage, you'll have experienced steering a yacht, sail handling, ropework and safety onboard.

The first day will include a meet and greet with your sailing crew followed by a safety briefing before beginning the voyage. You'll then get to grips with learning basic sailing techniques and experience man overboard practice. 

Over the following days, you'll build your sailing knowledge while having fun and making friends. You'll be fully involved with all aspects of sailing the yacht from looking after the boat to cooking and cleaning. After a day at sea, most evenings will be spent covering theory, playing games, relaxing and socialising or you may have the chance to go ashore. All crew members are accompanied by an adult when ashore.
