Jens & Mike's Xmas Sailing Party

Anyone fancy a sail before the Xmas lock-in? Mulled wine and festive spirits included, santa hats and hideous jumpers optional. Fair weather only - we'll cancel the event if the forecast looks miserable.

ITINERARY


Friday: Meetup at the marina's local for dinner and a drink. Then settle down in the heated yacht for the night.

Saturday: 8am morning arrivals and breakfast; 9am safety and crew briefing; 10am setting sails

Sunday: Return to the marina by 4pm latest, followed by a de-briefing (well, more likely a well-deserved farewell drink in the nearby bar) before heading home.


PAYMENTS


The total price is £135 to be paid as follows: £15 to RSVP via Paypal and a £120 bank transfer within a week. The price includes on-board accommodation in shared double cabins. In addition, you will need to pay your share of the kitty (food and drinks on the yacht, marina fees and fuel) and for your own meals, drinks and other expenses ashore.

This event is organized on fair, non-profit and shared cost terms. It will go ahead provided that we have 6 participants (incl. Skipper). 

Full refund in case of cancellation by the event host.

If this event appears to be full, please register on the waiting list as we sometimes have late drop-outs or the possibility to add additional spaces. 

MISC NOTES 

You're expected to fully participate in all aspects of the trip (sailing, galley, etc). No minimum experience required.

The yacht is a recently build, fully equipped, safety coded and heated Beneteau Oceanis 37 (or similar). As we'll be sailing her in most weather conditions, you will need several layers of warm clothes (e.g. woolly underwear, 1-2 mid-layers of fleece or similar non-cotton materials and a good waterproof outer layer), head wear, gloves, thick socks and rubber boots. Quality waterproofs and rubber boots hire can be arranged in advance for an additional fee. Safety vest, harness and tether will be supplied. 

Although we can generally cater for ovo-lacto vegetarians, other dietary requirements must be discussed with the event host before booking.
