18th – 25th Sept, Falmouth
Focus on: Marine Conservation and Habitat Restoration
The clear Atlantic waters of the British Isles are not only an amazing place to sail, but are home to an incredibly rich variety of wildlife and diverse ecosystems. We are super lucky to be joined this week by conservationist Lucie Machin who has recently returned from the South Atlantic where she has been doing conservation work on Ascension Island.
As we sail the beautiful coastline of Cornwall, we will be visiting three pioneering marine sustainability projects which are conserving the natural environment and developing ideas for the blue economy.
No sailing or conservation experience is required as Sail Britain’s skipper Oliver will teach you the ropes, and Lucie will introduce you to the secrets of the ocean.
The trip fee of £695 covers the cost of the boat, crew, all equipment and training you’ll need onboard, as well as food, fuel and gas for the week. Not included is your travel to and from the start/end points of the voyage and any expenses ashore, although these tend to very limited out in the wilds!
