RYA Yachtmaster Ocean Qualifying Passage

Sail the Atlantic Ocean from USA to England

Get ready for over 3000nm sailing across the ocean as we head from the Florida Keys in the USA to the south coast of England. En route, we will stop at the Bahamas, Bermuda and the Azores. This truly is a magical challenge. You will be on a 60' ocean going yacht and learning to live on the open ocean, where time seems to disappear, replaced by awesome sunsets, whales and long, slow Atlantic rollers. The weather will vary from light and variable winds to  stronger weather, where the sails will be reefed and the yacht will be surging through the waves. All the time you will be under the expert guidance of our instructors, ensuring you are superbly trained and always  encouraged to be fully involved.

 

We're navigating using just the Sun, Moon, stars and planets - and we'll teach you how!

There are few things quite as spectacular as finding one's position using just the Sun and stars. Included in the trip price is a free two day course in celestial navigation, where we will teach you this incredible art. We will then sail without the use of GPS, and not only will you have sailed the Atlantic Ocean, but you will have done so navigating only via the sun, moon, planets and stars!
