Cooler Month Group Sailings
Have you got a group of ten friends or a social or service club that want to try something different?
You may want to consider getting a group together for a weekend away. This can be up to 10 people fully catered (food) for a weekend. Departure from Hobart on Friday evening (or Early Saturday morning) getting back to Hobart on Sunday afternoon.
The Lady Nelson will depart Hobart and then travel to d'Entrecasteaux Channel or Frederick Henry or Norfolk Bays depending on where the best sailing will be. You get familiar with the boat, help in sailing before we anchor for the night. Saturday, after a hearty breakfast we are off to explore and sail before anchoring again on Saturday night. Red wine with a home cooked roast dinner and a conviviality with fellow passengers and crew, hearing others tales and experiences, massive waves, angry whales, crabby Captains (you know what I mean) passes the evening.
After another hearty breakfast on Sunday morning (unfortunately) it is time to start heading back to Hobart.
The Lady Nelson offers these trips over the cooler months for a group of 10 people for only $300 per person.
"One of these group sails a few years ago occured on the coldest weekend of the year, snow down to 200 metres. It was a great group of Lions (service club) from around Tassie. We had a ball that weekend and it was a memorable trip away" - Mal Riley, Skipper.
