Full Programme

Well Covid changed everything and our focus has been on skippered charter for ‘Bubbles/ Families.

I am not a Lawyer so we sought advice and have more opinions than the number of Lawyers we sought them from. As a Coded Vessel with capacity of 10 and on UK Register we are different from most other yachts.
What we definitely can’t do is have non family/bubble mebers sharing a cabin at night, this is a significant limitation for racing but has little effect for Milebuilder sailing.
Our capacity is effectively reduced to a maximum of 5 and we have a strict Covid Risk Reduction Policy.
We also offer a ‘Covid money back guarantee in the event we can’t run a trip due to changing Gov requirements.

Covid Guarantee
If we cancel due to Government advice or requirements you get back all money paid direct to us . We have decision dates for different events and these will reflect the changing situation plus when we have to move Wild Spirit to get to the start of an event. Typically they are about a week before the event is due to start. We will only give back the money paid to us so you will be responsible for any travel costs etc.
Wild Spirit is owned by Paul Jackson Consulting and Sailing Limited which has been running since 2004. The Company has no Mortgages or Loans, is financially stable and has always complied with all statutory requirements. We run on a ‘Not for Profit’ basis and any surplus goes to Charities such as www.knoticatsailing.org/information
Your Obligations
If you have the symptoms of Covid 19 or test positive for it within the 14 days before the event, you must tell us and not attend. If we can re-sell your place you will get a full refund.
You must comply with Government Guidelines and Restrictions relating to Covid 19. For example if we are required to wear face masks during sailing, that is what we will do. There may also be company requirements such as immediately washing or sanitising hands every time you board Wild Spirit.
Your Skipper will be Paul Jackson who is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Public Health and Chartered Environmental Health Practitioner. He was an Assessor for the National Clinical Assessment Service of the NHS for 9 years and a Non-Executive Director and Vice-Chairman of NHS Somerset. He will be responsible for all Statutory requirements plus risk control measurements in respect of Covid 19 on board Wild Spirit.

Long weekend out of Plymouth £325 3 Email Wild Spirit

Alright pic is of us up at Coll in 2018 but the web site crash has wiped all my galleries and I haven’t rebuilt them yet.

Extra Long weekend sailing with Thursday evening meet and finish by 1630 Sunday.
Not sure where we will go but the crowds will have gone so none of the parking problems we have had in August in Falmouth and Dartmouth.
possibly a few nights hours and defintely a good Dinner or 2.

Max 4 on board, or can have one couple, then it is 5 including me.

If first to book is keen we can probably get one Qualifying Passage in towards YM by leaving early Saturday morning and heading to Newlyn but weather must be right. Then on Sunday round to Fowey or Falmouth on the tide and back to Plymouth Monday.

£325 includes all on board food, fees, fuel, marinas. Hire of oilies is £25 extra
