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 a long passage as you sail with the crew of Blue Clipper from Portugal to the Liverpool. This exciting mile-building voyage is for those wanting to experience life at sea and build those miles!
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 small yacht. If this is your aim, remember it will give you open ocean experience. Or you may just be an adventurer, who wants to try something new and escape the rat race to experience life on the open waves.
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.
