Milebuilder from Plymouth to Lymington- £675 £675 5 Email Wild Spirit

Obviously weather dependent but probably including a stop in Weymouth and Dartmouth or possibly Cowes.
Includes all on board food, safety kit, fees, fuel etc–We don’t do hidden extras.
Allow for 2 or 3 meals ashore.
Max 6 on board including Paul and we are coded for 10.

Train to Plymouth and back from Lymington works but for trips like this we put everyone in touch to see if a hire car one way also makes sense.

Mile Builder Lymington to Plymouth possibly via France or Channel Islands £475 5 Email Wild Spirit

Meet Lymington Sunday evening with good meal on board then early start Monday .
Several stops which may include France or more likely Alderney if we go South. If we head west then Weymouth, Dartmouth and probably Fowey are possibles. Alright Fowey is west of Plymouth but it is superb especially in the Autumn when we can normally get a walk ashore berth.

From Plymouth we may get a Hire Car back to Lymington but train works well to both locations.

Includes all on board food etc–we don’t do hidden extras.

Covid guarantee – if Government restrictions in force 10 days ahead of the planned trip prevent us going ahead on the trip booked get a full refund. This may be subject to a decision deadline such as if it is not clear by 10 days before the event starts then Paul may cancel and just refund money paid. We won’t accept liability for travel, accommodation and other costs.

We run with a maximum of 6 on board for most trips and we stop to see places and have a good meal out. I know where to go and have selflessly researched restaurants, museums, markets etc.This is different from a non-stop Delivery trip which some companies run when they need a yacht moving from A to B.
Wild Spirit is a MCA coded vessel with full safety spec and the skipper will normally be me (Yachtmaster Ocean Commercial with over  100,000NM logged+ RYA/ISAF Instructor).

Alongside in Portmagee Ireland

Wild Spirit is a fast cruiser which has won the 3 Peaks Yacht Race, completed Fastnets, Volvo Round Ireland races etc and sailed around Britain including St Kilda. She is more comfortable than many yachts with hot water, a full heating system and plenty of room for everyone to sit down below or in the cockpit. Whilst she is coded for 10 people we normally have a maximum of 6 on board when cruising.

Her safety equipment fully meets legal requirements and includes Radar an Electronic Position Indicating Radio Beacon AIS and ‘sea brake’ system. I am a commercial Ocean Yachtmaster and Royal Yachting Association Yachtmaster Instructor who has sailed over 100,000 miles including Royal Ocean Racing Club events in severe conditions and won Class twice in the Sydney Hobart.
