  • All onboard meals and snacks
  • Fuel, gas & marina fees 
  • Skipper and 1st mate services     
  • Sextant available

What to expect on our sailing adventure holidays:

As a crew member you can be involved in as much of the daily running of the boat as you like – this could be meal preparation or standing a watch. All trips will have a watch system, especially overnight. There will be an appointed watch leader who has sufficient experience and of course the skipper and first mate to support and take action when required. There is something for everyone onboard regardless of your sailing experience. If you have little or no sailing experience please get in touch and we can chat it through with you. 

Irrespective of which ‘ultimate adventure’ you choose you will be looked after by our highly trained RYA/MCA Yachtmaster skippers, most are  RYA instructors too so they can literally show you the ropes on the way!

We highly recommend that you take out travel insurance which includes offshore sailing.

Be part of these unique and one-of-a-kind sailing adventures!

If you are interested, please contact us via below enquiry form, email or phone 01475 789837. We will be happy to  answer any questions that you may have, help you with your reservation and make your dream come true.

 

 

About the Global Surveyor Yacht: 

We were delighted to welcome to the fleet Global Surveyor to Go West Sailing in 2020; she’s aptly described as the ultimate machine. Global Surveyor was designed and built by Gunter Marine and the original owner Graham Lascelles for round the world sailing. The original build was in 1998 and she has been extensively refitted in 2020. She was intentionally over-specced with 7 watertight compartments and crash bulkheads,  extra thick hull, over-sized cutter rig, 150kg main anchor, and diesel tank which holds 2000 litres with many other extras that are not an everyday occurrence on a sailing yacht. She has extensive safety kit including 2 ocean class 12 person life raft and satellite communication.

Internally, she has been designed with comfort and safety in mind. There is a very large saloon complete with mahogany trim and a dining table to seat 16 comfortably. Each cabin has been fitted with overhead reading lights and USB port to allow for device charging. The yacht has been designed to carry 16 passengers, however we keep this to a maximum of 10 plus 2 crew between 5 spacious cabins. This also ensures a really hands-on experience!

You can see Global Surveyor exploring Greenland on video below.
