October '20 -February '21: New Ocean Sailing opportunities

Coastal Cruise Sydney-Jervis Bay and back - £475 GBP/ $850 AUD

• 8th - 13th November: Coastal Cruise, Sydney - Jervis Bay and back.

By popular request, we are running this 6 day cruise down the coast of NSW. There will be a chance to get in night watch-keeping, but also to visit such beautiful places as Jervis Bay, as well maybe a bit of whale-watching along the southern coast of NSW.

This course is a great opportunity for night sailing, daytime sailing - and you can build Yachtmaster qualifying mileage. So... some night hours and about 300 miles to add to your logbook.

"Halfway to Antarctica" - £1025 GBP / $2250 AUD

• 9th -29th Jan 2021: RYA Yachtmaster Ocean Qualifying passage. Southern Ocean, Eden-Macquarie Island-Hobart.

Challenge yourself... sail halfway to Antarctica! Sydney - Macquarie Is - Hobart. 20 days and 2000 miles in the toughest ocean in the world.

The plan is for 8 days of Southern Ocean sailing to this sub-Antarctic island, two or three days anchored to study the wildlife and 8 days back. Intended for anyone wanting to do an RYA Yachtmaster Ocean Qualifying passage and wishing to experience the great Southern Ocean first hand.

This passage will involve a circumnavigation of Australia's Macquarie Island (home of the Australian Antarctic Division) at 55° South. Not to be undertaken lightly.

If you are interested, please call for a discussion on +61 405 430525.
