Ireland Cruise - LEG A: Hamble to Baltimore, 3rd to 7th September
LEG A: Hamble to Baltimore
If you fancy getting some proper blue water sailing miles under your belt, then there may be an opportunity to bring one of the boats over to Ireland. If we get enough interest and a good mix of experience, we'll charter an additional boat from Hamble, and sail it across to the meeting point in Ireland.
We'll assemble in Hamble on the Tuesday before hand, (the 3rd of September in the evening), and begin the 400 mile voyage across to Baltimore. There is ample opportunity to engage as much or as little as you'd like in the planning and execution of the trip. Night time cruising, watching the sun rise at sea, and the almost guaranteed dolphin visits are some of the amazing elements of an Irish sea crossing. For those looking to further their knowledge, we'll be maintaining two separate navigation modes, one using electronics, and the other, using purely traditional methods for the entire crossing.
The predominant winds are either abeam or forward of abeam, which makes for good exhilarating sailing. In the Irish Sea, we will be exposed to the full might of the atlantic, and there is a good chance we'll get oceanic swell. Great opportunities to practice helming and sail trim.The standard Offshore T&Cs will apply See http://www.lcsc.org.uk/sailing/yachting-general
