Overview
Whether you’re a sailing novice or a seasoned expert, this Day Sail Adventure is suitable for all. Escape the busy city of Plymouth for a fun day out on the water. The experienced skippers will teach you how to helm, drop the anchor, and trim the sails, as you sail along the waters of Plymouth Sound. You won’t have to worry about bringing food with you as a delicious light lunch is included.
What to Expect
Come and meet us at Meet us at King Point Marina, Plymouth (PL1 3EF) at 9:30 am. Sail until 4:00 pm.
During your day sail, you will sail our 41′ sailing yacht in the sheltered waters of Plymouth Sound. Our experienced skippers will encourage you to helm, drop the anchor and trim the sails. Because we will only book a maximum of 5 guests onboard your day sail, you have plenty of hands-on experience.

Please bring
Layers of warm clothing (even in the summer), waterproof jacket, waterproof trousers, flat non-marking shoes, towel, soft travel bag (as hard bags are difficult to stow), sun cream and sunglasses.
