Sailing on the Northumberland coast there is no shortage of stunning views.

We will gather at 6pm on a Friday night for introduction and socialising then you can tuck into a delicious dinner before settling into your bunk. We will set out nice and early on the Saturday and see where the wind takes us! A full day of sailing and then anchoring somewhere (hopefully with a lovely sunset!). On the Sunday we will head back to Blyth and should be in port by 5/6pm. There is an option to meet us early Saturday morning if you do not wish to spend Friday night onboard.

I just want to say how amazing the crew were. They were all so kind and helpful in making sure we had the experience of sailing a tall ship. I can’t praise them enough. Thank you for a wonderful experience. – 2021 overnight passenger
