Milebuilder with cross channel–8 days £575 4 Email Wild Spirit

Cross Channel Milebuilder.
We have gone for Saturday to Saturday for those who have a way to travel.

Expect a couple of good meals ashore, as after years of selfless research we know where to go.

With many Years of Channel, Solent and 3 Peaks racing, extensive cruising and RYA Instructing, Geoff West (on right in Photo), has a wealth of experience to pass on.
Based in Cowes on the Isle of Wight, he knows the Solent and English Channel very well and is keen to share his tide and weather strategies on a longer cruise.

Probably 5 or more night hours and at least 2 qualifying passages for YacthMaster.

A bit more expensive than a 5 day course as it takes out 2 weekends. includes all on board food etc.
one booked at 5th January

Round the Island Race £395 1 Email Wild Spirit

Special offer –One space available due to work, convenient if you happen to be female for cabin share–book by 8th February and save £95

The Famous Round the Island Race . With up to 1800 yachts it is a great specatacle and everyone sailor should do it at least once, even if they aren’t really into racing.
Meet Thursday evening , train Friday (several members of fastnet and 3 peaks yacht Race teams on board) race Saturday.

We eat out Lymington Thursday evening, Friday evening we are in Cowes and i have booked a table at Mojacs. Saturday we are booked into Cowes after the race but as we may be late in I haven’t booked anything.

Depart Lymington Sunday afternoon.

St Malo Race or cruise £250 2 Email Wild Spirit

We will either race to St Malo if we still need the qualifying miles for the Fastnet or if we don’t (which is more likely) then we cruise.

If we just cruise/ train and dates will be Friday evening till Sunday afternoon. The price of £250 reflects this uncertainty.

RYA Milebuilder to France and Channel Islands £595 5 Email Wild Spirit

Meet for 1330 Saturday at Lymington and catch the afternoon tide. Itinerary will depend on crew plus weather but Channel Islands and France most likely. At least 2 qualifying Pasages for Yachtmaster and a few meals out.
You can do Competent Crew on this trip and it is good for those wanting to build miles, experience and confidence.
Passport is essential.

Milebuilder/ cruise to the Scillies £575 5 Email Wild Spirit

Meet Plymouth Wednesday evening ready to catch tide Thursday morning and head west.
Itinerary is weather plus team dependent but the Isles of Scilly are top of the list.
We finish Lymington and the price reflects this plus it is after the Fastnet but we have several days for any repairs. In the, most unlikely, event of this trip being cancelled we will refund cost in full, but travel is down to you. In 12 years of doing trips after the Fastnet, Round Ireland and 3 Peaks Yacht race we haven’t had to cancel a single one.

You can do Competent Crew on this one and it is good for building miles plus experience.
it is quite possible we will also visit Channel Islands and posibly france so a Passport is needed.
