Cross the Bay of Biscay with tall ship Maybe as she heads to Spain from Southampton.

Improve your skills and build your confidence in an offshore adventure sailing holiday on tall ship Maybe with an ocean crossing of the Bay of Biscay.

Begin your voyage in the English port of Southampton before making your way through the Solent and past the Isle of Wight. Next is a crossing through the English Channel towards the French coast. Depending on the direction of the wind and weather systems, you may stop in the Channel Islands before continuing across the Bay of Biscay.

Your final destination will be the Spanish port of Camarinhas.

Life at Sea

Your voyage on Maybe will be an active expedition sailing holiday. Night sailing is a wondrous occasion and with no light pollution, you will see the night sky as you have never seen it before. Believe it or not, you do not need any sailing experience. The professional and experienced crew will teach you everything you need to know as you will sail with and become part of the crew, hoisting sails, taking the helm and really getting involved with sailing a tall ship.

Work as part of a watch system, help to navigate the ocean, climb the rigging, mend a sail and get into the rhythm of ocean sailing.  Learn about Celestial navigation, gain skills in seamanship and learn to live on the ocean, at one with nature.

Your ticket price includes Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and soft drinks. Bedding is provided – you just need to bring your own towels.

Maybe

Guest berths: 8 Rig: Gaff Ketch

Built in 1929, classic boat Maybe is a beautifully shaped 28m gaff ketch. A strong sea-worthy vessel, she is built with extra strength using steel frames, a hardwood hull and teak decking.

She has a rather famous history, once being owned by Jan Jacob Van Rietschoten, father of the flying Dutchman, Cornelis ‘Conny’ Van Rietschoten. Having spent most of her life privately owned sailing around the world, she has been owned by her present owners since 1989.

After a complete overhaul in 2007 and a restoration to her original Gaff rig in 2011, she now spends her summers sailing Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and winters keeping warm in Spain and Portugal.
