Seniors Week 2018 - Sailings for Seniors, October/November 2018

Try something different for Seniors Week

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Mark Twain

We have completed one of these trips in late October, See some images  HERE

One of the comments about the trip



Are you ready for a Tall Ship Sailing Adventure from Hobart?

This two night trip is an ideal taste of Tall Ships life while sailing around the beautiful South East of Tasmania.  Where will we go?  That really depends on the weather but optons could include sailing around Bruny Island, Frederick Henry bay and Norfolk Bay.  If the wind is not too willing a bit of a sail around Storm Bay.  Towards evening we will find a scenic bay and anchor for the night,

Our Accommodation
You will all have a bunk, it is a bit like bunkhouse accommodation.

Our Food
FREE-RANGE organic brown wild duck breast and leg  stuffed with hand-polished Israeli pearl couscous, surrounded by a sprinkling of sun-dried heirloom apple picked by naked virgins under a full moon.

No, none of the above but usually something like roasts, with pre dinner dips and nibbles a dessert.  Lunch is usually  a selection of meats and salads and soup. For breakfast you can stick with the continental options or weaken and indulge in bacon and eggs and sides.

Your Tasks
You can climb the masts, furl and unfurl the sails, steer the ship, handle the lines, help out all round or watch the crew do it.  Most people who come away on our trips want to get involved in sailing the ship.  You do not have to go up the masts (unless you want to).  It will be entirely up to you how much you get involved in the sailing versus just enjoying Tassie's spectacular coast as it passes you by.  After dinner you may want to join in singing a sea shanty or two.

We will have some mini courses where you can be taught basic navigation, Knots and splices and othr nautical tasks.
