Your day begins as you board the Catalina yacht with your small group and experienced crew.

You'll practice tasks such as winching, mainsail and tacking, while taking in the beautiful surrounds. With the wind in your hair and the fresh sea breeze on your skin, you'll feel relaxed and energised. Once your sailing session has ended you'll enjoy complimentary snacks on the cruise back to the Docklands.
