All are accessible, even if you have little or no previous sailing experience. Epic Voyages and Stretching trips will also suit those seeking mile-building or preparing for a qualification such as Yachtmaster
Explore our sailing adventures in the UK and Croatia
Venture across the South Atlantic or high into the Arctic
We will email you a recommended kit list well before the start of your adventure. We supply life-jackets and all safety equipment and also have ‘foul weather gear’ available to borrow if required.
This really varies and everyone is welcome! - Our longer trips are brilliant “mile builders” and skill builders for people who want to do a qualification and may already have a lot of experience. However, even our epic voyages can be tackled by those with very limited sailing experience - small group and expert, experienced skippers mean we are very adaptable to each individual.
Excellent, hearty food is included in all our trips while on board and you could eat on board everyday if desired. Meals and activities ashore are generally not included unless specifically stated (Although, for example Bed and Breakfast IS included for the stay on St Helena island).
Flights / travel to and from the departure point are not included although we do have a partnership with Ultimate travel club, which may give up to 40% discount on international air fares. Ask us for more details.. You should also consider travel insurance, specifically for ocean sailing. We can provide help here on what you need. Generally meals and activities ashore are at your own expense.
This is an adventure and it should be fun. Our skippers are patient and passionate about ocean life and will go out of their way to make you feel relaxed and enjoy the whole experience.. We keep group size small so you will quickly get to know your crew mates - indeed, many of our crews stay in contact long after their trip is finished. We ask all our crew members (and staff) to behave respectfully to everyone on board and will discuss this at the start of every trip.

The skipper was excellent. So many adventures, amazing places. Highly recommended
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.
Not just an adventure. Truly, an accomplishment. A phenomenal experience
Absolutely loved the trip. For a first time sailor it really was amazing.Th Skipper was ace, crew were fab and the sun shone - perfect!
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.
