Family Sailing

Our aim is to help families re-engage in a completely new environment.  For most, sailing will be a new experience and family members will need to work together to become a great crew.

What is Families Sailing?

Our aim is to help families re-engage in a completely new environment. For most, sailing will be a new experience and family members will have to work together to become a great crew.

The yacht will be skippered by an experienced Yachtmaster so you can take part in as much or as little sailing as you like. You will sleep on the yacht which will be moored at different locations each night. You can leave the yacht and spend a day exploring the local area with your family if you wish.

What does it involve?

On day one you will help prepare the yacht and meet the skipper. Most of our skippers have experienced military operations and some of the challenges Service families face.

The next two days are sail training in beautiful Cornwall – but with a difference. We have scheduled challenges where everyone is important; older family members are faced with navigational challenges and the youngest can find our treasure or watch for our pirates!

Electronic items such as phones and tablets are discouraged on board our fleet. Dinnertime is about recognising each other’s strengths and congratulations on a great day.


Our family sailing is about ‘quality time’, working together
and re-engaging

"We all had a fantastic time and not only acquired new skills but relished the family time we had away from all the distractions of everyday life and the stress of my injuries."
