Brief description of the holiday
Depending on the weather conditions, the program can be changed. The route below is an example.
This is a varied cruise combining coastal and offshore sailing. The variety will be present throughout the cruise through the landscapes with as a starting point the Bay of Saint-Malo and the tide one of the strongest in the world, then the Breton coasts of Emeraude and Goëlo and their islands such as Bréhat , before the highlight of this cruise: Crossing the Channel, heading for the Scilly Islands which benefit from a mild climate and good sunshine.
You will discover the way of life of long-distance sailors at the rate of watch shifts and night navigation. We will come across fishing boats, cargo ships, but also dolphins, sometimes the basking shark or the sunfish. Unmissable visits to the seals of Western Rocks, the subtropical botanical garden of Tresco. Then it will be the return via the coasts of Cornwall , Devon, and the Channel Islands.
Check out the crew!
It is a boat designed for the trip drawn without worry of gauge. Everything has been done to obtain a fast boat while respecting the specifications for the big cruise, that is to say a sailboat, with a great stability of road, the capacity to support a heavy load, and a great solidity for the security needed for this program.
Although having a reinforced sampling, the boat is lighter than a standard construction thanks to its method of construction in epoxy wood composite, according to the method of strip planking. It is a fiberglass / red cedar / epoxy resin sandwich that combines a compromise between lightness, rigidity, strength, and insulation.
Despite its travel boat program, it has been designed and built with real performance concerns that bring pleasure, feel, and safety. Its hull is reminiscent of those from offshore racing and influenced the architecture of the first Class 40 and many current cruisers.
