Voyage Description

On a sailing voyage we never use the word itinerary, as skippers will always be aiming for the best sailing and shore landings for the forecast and most idyllic or sheltered anchors and ports. They are as keen as you to include some of the highlights describe, but you have to go with Mother Nature, not fight her. The description below is based on what we think might be possible, based on past trips, or experience, but nothing is guaranteed on a sailing voyage. If the following voyage description is not fulfilled for any reason, Maybe Sailing and Maybe Sailing Youth Initiative cannot be held responsible.

Build your miles and learn to handle a tall ship on an offshore passage as you sail with the crew of Blue Clipper from Aberdeen to Norway. This exciting mile-building voyage is for those wanting to experience life at sea and build those miles!

A mile maker voyage is principally to get a ship from A to B, you may make stops along the way but these won’t be known until the conditions for the trip have been determined.

If you are working your way towards the 2500 qualifying miles needed for a RYA yachtmaster exam then this passage is a good way of getting to that target quickly and with considerably more comfort than a large yacht. If this is your aim, remember it will give you open ocean experience but not much coastal navigation or pilotage, but if you combine it with other shorter voyages it is a good string to your bow.

During the voyage you will be spilt up into watches, the normal duty rota is four hours on duty and eight off but this may vary with circumstances and crew abilities. This is a long voyage and you will get into the rhythm of an Ocean Passage with time to unwind. If you like to keep busy then there is always ships maintenance to help with.
