The Boat & Start Location

37 foot fully MCA coded Jeanneau Sun Odyssey yacht for our RYA training center in Albufeira (Algarve Portugal) starting Wednesday 30/05/2012 returning 6/06/2012

Sailing Area
We plan to sail in and around the Algarve with an emphasis on leisurely cruising and lots of fun.

I am a qualified RYA – Yachtmaster Instructor and school principal. I instruct RYA Tidal courses from beginner to Coastal Skipper from our base in Marina de Albufeira and have been sailing for over 30 years (I started very young !)


Wednesday 30th May

The plan is to leave Albufeira on Wednesday and provide 2 days instruction and full briefing, including safety, to all crew members before the camera’s arrive on Friday evening  (01/06/12).

Saturday 2nd June

On the 2/6/12 we will set sail, cruise around the Algarve with camera crew onboard to shoot various sailing activities. This will hopefully include a swim in the crystal clear waters, an evening at anchor and an evening in a different marina to combine sailing and socialising.


We will adapt our route to the weather and the level of the crew to make sure everyone on board is safe and comfortable.


Experience required

Everyone is welcome from comp crew to experienced sailor, the emphasis is on having fun and relaxing and everyone will get involved in every aspect of the sailing.


More about the video

The instructional video is to promote the business and will therefore contain only fragmented shots of the crew receiving instruction. The final video will be 3 minutes long and will be available online from our web site to offer potential clients a taste of what we do!
