What to expect
This passage is a great way to get some Mediterranean sunshine in autumn and sail the coasts of Spain and France. The glamorous south coast of France is a great place to end the passage and St Tropez is a major tourist hotspot to enjoy before flying out from a choice of two international airports served by low cost airlines.
You will be part of the watch system and will be expected to take an active role in sailing the yacht, cooking, general onboard housekeeping and lookout duties.
You will be sailing with an experienced skipper who will be on hand to provide expert tuition in passage making, professional skippering skills and navigation instruction. You will be able to log the miles toward your RYA qualifications and achieve skippered passages.
