Trip Details

Creator Telefonica BlackView
Type Cruising
Start date 26th Aug 2020
Finish date 30th Aug 2020
Destination - A Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth, UK
Destination - B Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth, UK

Over the 5 days you will have the opportunity to helm, trim, practice evolutions, passage plan, weather route and if you are a budding yacht master you can have the opportunity to skipper a 60 mile passage.

Some of the planned trips include sailing down the Jurassic coast to Weymouth, the Channel island and France. On the first day, after a safety brief, deck orientation, skills and drills we will get out the charts, assess the weather and come up with our destinations.

The Boat - Kraken (ex Telefonica Black, Volvo 70) is a stripped out racing boat with very few luxuries, so please expect high side hot bunking, freeze dried food – as the galley consists of a sink and 1 camping stove for boiling water and a very exciting gimbled heads! On Kraken we like to be fully inclusive and give amateur sailors the chance to participate in all aspects of sailing the boat – we can assure you; you will not just be sitting on the rail
