Join us on one of our fleet of four Challenger yachts for our Winter Mile Builder.

Our Challengers really need no introduction. Originally built to sail around the world against the prevailing winds and tides, they really are the perfect vessel to mile build. Having been designed to withstand the Southern Ocean, you will mile build and experience sailing one of these iconic yachts!

You'll join the yacht at 16.00 on Monday 27 January and meet your crew.

Once settled we will run through the plan for the Mile Builder, issue wet weather gear, and run through all the briefings to get you ready for an early departure the following day. The day will end with a meal onboard and an early night to set you up for the following day.

The aim of the voyage will be to sail a minimum of 600 nm, with a realistic potential to cover more. The Skipper will set a destination, determined by the weather, with options including Falmouth or even round the Fastnet Rock.

As well as building miles you will learn all about sailing offshore, sailing in heavy weather and under short sail.

Whether you're looking to mile build for your RYA qualification or just experience exhilarating offshore sailing this is the trip for you!

Whilst every effort will be made to deliver the above voyage content sometimes, due to weather and crew’s ability, the content may need to change. Please see below for our full Conditions of Booking.

We have a Heavy Weather Training starting on 24th January. If you want to join this voyage we will offer you a 20% discount off the Heavy Weather Training. Please call the Reservations Team on 02392 832055 to book.
