Our Crew and Boat
Our Crew, Amanda and Iain, are both highly experienced skippers with years of experience. They are also fully qualified RYA Instructors and Amanda is a US Sailing Instructor.
Our boat, Great Escape, is a 36′ (11 metre) Bavaria sailing yacht. She is rigged as a sloop i.e. she has a main sail and a foresail. The foresail is roller furling and the main is loose footed with in-line slab reefing.
She has 3 cabins below deck, a well equipped galley and good sized saloon area. She also has a bathing platform and ladder for all you swimmers out there. Also most importantly she has an ice-cold fridge (essential for keeping the beer and fizz at the right temperature!)
Whilst we provide a relaxed, enjoyable and informal sailing adventure, safety is paramount. Great Escape is equipped to the highest UK MCA safety standards (Maritime & Coastguard Agency).
Along with all life saving equipment we provide life jackets and buoyancy aids for everyone on-board.
