Run out of Holyhead Marina on the beautiful isle of Anglesey, this fun, exciting experience is a great way to enjoy the wonderful world of sailing. Begin with a welcome tea or coffee before receiving a full safety briefing, getting fitted with a life jacket and being introduced to the impressive Farr 45 Espresso Martini race yacht. After helping to prepare the boat, motor out of the harbour and head out to open sea you will be greeted by the beautiful sight of the skerries in the distance. The fun really begins, hoist the sails and appreciate the shear power and speed of sailing a thoroughbred race yacht. By which time you will be ready for a light lunch on the go aboard the vessel. After lunch, get hands-on by helping to complete a series of yachting manoeuvres and enjoying a stint behind the wheel.
Once back at the Harbour, drop sail and head for land.
