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.
We start this adventure in the maritime city of Belfast. After safety briefs and unpacking its time to set sail, heading out of Belfast Lough. The wind will determine the route we take whether this be hugging the coast of Ireland or crossing to the Isle of Man before heading for the Welsh coast. Build your confidence and miles, navigate with the crew, take your turn at the helm and handle the ropes on our traditional Tall Ship. You will become fully immersed in the ships daily routine and watch system before arriving in the vibrant Cornish coastal town of Falmouth.
