Rating: Adventure
Trips with an adventure rating will cover much greater mileage than an explore trip. Crews will get the chance to head to sea properly and sail for a few days or nights and really get into life on board an ocean going yacht. We still aim to allow a good bit of time to head ashore and explore, but as distances increase so does our reliance on weather windows and conditions. Sailors often find it’s a matter of hurry up and wait. If you love heading offshore, arriving in new lands and are confident that you will be able to cope with a few days at sea, even if conditions deteriorate, then these are going to be fantastic trips for you.
