A mile-builder voyage is perfect if you want to maximise your sea-miles. The aim of the voyage will be to sail a minimum of 600nm, with a realistic potential to cover more. The Skipper will set a route, determined by the weather, which may include Cork/ Kinsale, Falmouth, Plymouth and Weymouth.

In addition to building miles, you’ll experience offshore sailing and while sailing in the Irish Sea in October. There is the potential for some heavy weather and our Challengers are the ideal yachts for this. We’ll provide you with all the gear, knowledge and skills to sail in these conditions.

You’ll join the yacht on Monday 4th October and meet your crew. Following a tour, we’ll run through the plan for the mile builder, issue wet weather gear, and brief you ready for departure.

All of our voyages of four nights or more qualify for the DofE Gold Residential award. Please let our Reservations Team know before sailing if you want to use the voyage for this.

Full and valid passport is required.
