Rating: Explore
These trips have low mileage for the time allotted and are almost entirely coastal and day sailing in nature. There may be an overnight sail or a day when you head further offshore, but most of the time you will be close to the coast and having plenty of time to explore ashore. If you are completely new to sailing or nervous about your capabilities, these would be an ideal entry point.
