You will discover the history of our iconic Challenger yachts and have the chance to set the sails, steer, tack and gybe. This is the perfect opportunity to experience the basics of sailing and find out if you would like to join one of our longer voyages in the future.

Having hoisted the sails, the morning will be spent covering the basics of sailing before breaking for lunch.
