Rating: Expedition
These are trips into the wild and far off the beaten track. Facilities will probably be very limited and we can make very few promises about what to expect. This is true adventure not a packaged experience, so if you want your hot showers guaranteed and need creature comforts on tap then these are not for you. But if you get excited by heading to some remote sailing grounds, into areas that few yachts frequent – with all the rewards that come with that – then you will love an expedition rated trip. Just don’t ask us what comes next – because we don’t know either!
