Modern-rigged vessels with a length of less than 40 m and with a waterline length – the length of the point at which the vessel sits in the water – of at least 9.14 m, not carrying spinnaker-like sails.

Sailing on a Class C or D vessel, and even a smaller Class B, is a wholly different experience. There’s a more natural focus on your connection with the sea, which isn’t surprising considering how much closer you are to the waves.
Don’t expect large galleys or showers here. In fact, you’ll likely find yourself showering under a hose in the “heads.” But don’t let that put you off – this is a high adrenaline, once in a lifetime experience that many people can’t wait to repeat.
Speed and hands-on sailing is the name of the game on board these smaller vessels. You’ll have the opportunity to engage with every part of the sailing experience in more depth than you might do on a Tall Ship. And you’ll need to form close-knit relationships with your crewmates to master the skills required.
Through professional training and giving your all, you’ll forge new friendships and create memories that you’ll never forget.
