 Small Group, hands-on sailing with world leading skippers

Backed by years of sailing experience, we aim to design the perfect sailing adventure for every level



With a maximum group size of six people, each trip is uniquely personalized and flexible. We contact every guest before joining to discover what sailing experience you have and what you want to get out of the trip. Perhaps you want to learn celestial navigation, or build miles, or maybe just experience the majesty of an ocean voyage - whatever your needs, we will adapt things to make sure you have an amazing time. It’s all about you and us adapting to what you want.


Wavysail skippers are some of the most experienced sailors in the world. To lead our epic voyages, requires a minimum of 1/2 million miles of sailing experience -that’s equivalent to 10x round the world, each! Explorers, sailing world record holders and, above all, skippers with a passion for the sea. Be reassured you are in safe, capable hands and an incredible learning experience.


Our trips are not cruises. We encourage you to get involved in every aspect of sailing - you can learn to menu plan for an Atlantic crossing, understand how and when to reef sails, how to navigate by the stars - you will do it all - some bits you will love and some parts may be challenging - we will guide you through it all and you will form friendships for life through a shared adventure.

Adventures Guide

Whether you want to cross an Ocean, build miles, learn to sail or simply hang out with nature, we have a trip for you. We grade our trips into relaxing, stretching and epic voyages - all are accessible, even if you have limited sailing experience and, if you have any doubts or questions, simply give us a call or email us info@wavysail.com

Cape Town, Africa sailing trip

Awesome trip from Cape Town to St Helena. An adventure I will never forget. I made life long friends and experienced the thrill of blue water sailing. St Helena is totally unique. Highly recommend this trip for your next adventure.

Having returned from our mile building trip to St Helena I would like to thank Wavysail for organizing a once in a lifetime experience. It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life and so many life lessons learnt apart from the actual sailing experience gained.
