19 - 26 September: Possible Greece charter (out of Athens)
1 - 3 October: Budget weekend sail
17 - 24 October: Possible Greece charter (out of Athens)
For the Greece trips, I am planning on chartering an 11 berth 50' yacht and taking 8 people, four have already expressed an interest. For the September charter the cost is �450 a head, for the October charter it will be �375 I must have eight guests, otherwise the charter becomes uneconomic. I hope those wishing to come will be flexible enough so that if one trip does not fill up, they will be able to switch to the other. The costs include charter fee, food on board, fuel and moorings. So flights, airport taxes and transport from/to the airport, and evening meals ashore are not included. We will do anything you want (within reason and weather willing), tideless navigation and pilotage, sailing skills, night sailing, skills at all levels from Yachtmaster down to competent crew, and enjoying some of the local atmosphere as well. Or, if you wish, nothing at all, just watch the fanatics sailing.
Budget Weekends. Meet on the Friday evening, sup ashore, bacon butties for breakfasts, sandwich for lunches and sup ashore on Saturday evening. All mooring, food and fuel costs paid by participants . Charter fee �130 - �170 a head depending on size of boat and time of year.
Other possibilities are:
Long weekend cross channel. For those with experience.
Corporate sailing. How's about taking a bunch of friends or those who work with you for either a day or a weekend on the water?
Heavy weather sailing. When weather gets that way. We had one weekend last year, but though the wind was f7 gusting f8 we never deployed the series drogue.
There will be opportunities this autumn for:
Astro proving passage. 600 miles out and back to/from the western approaches, take some sights, show them to an assessor and become a Yachtmaster Ocean. (You do need to have completed the theory course and have an idea of how to use a sextant).
Mileage building. 800 miles + during 7 days at sea. Learn all about conducting a longish passage.
Theory courses. If you have a group of four or more, I can come to you, to run courses at any level. I run these over three weekends, one a month over three months. I also run these from Cheltenham and the Solent. This way those taking part get a chance to do the background reading, homework, the exercises and not be drained each night during a concentrated six day course. Day Skipper, Yachtmaster Coastal and Offshore and Astro navigation, and radio certificate (one day) all taught.
