What you'll do

After a welcoming you onboard we will go through a safety equipment brief and provide you with a life jacket then we'll depart Aberdeen Harbour, home of the world famous Jumbo Floating Restaurant. Once out of the harbour we'll hoist sails and sail off to our selected destination. We will give you a brief tutorial on how to sail the boat then we'll put you right behind the wheel straight away, so as we head out to sea to our chosen destination for a fun leisurely sail you'll be at the helm, Captain for the day. You'll also be invited to help with other crewing tasks, like hoisting & trimming the sails, plotting a course, even learn some basic navigation skills, or if you prefer, you can just relax, sit back and enjoy the ride. As we sail around the islands you will enjoy some stunning scenery whilst learning important procedures of how to sail and manage a big boat safely For lunch, we will call in at one of the many excellent island seafood restaurants - famous for popular local Cantonese dishes, Deep Fried Salt & Chilli Squid, Black Pepper Prawns, Singapore Noodles, Clams in Soy Sauce, Broccoli Scallops and much, much more. After lunch, maybe a swim in a nearby secluded bay, until its time to head home, when we will sail under spinnaker back to the Aberdeen pick up/drop off point.
