There is the adventure of the sea and the thrill of sailing on an ocean-going yacht. There are new places to visit, some of which can only be reached by boat. There are new things to learn and friends to make. But remember, it is often challenging, so the more you put into it, the more you gain.

What will it cost?

The usual cost of sailing on an ocean-going yacht is high, but because of the support that the Rona Sailing Project gets from so many people and organisations, and because we use qualified volunteers, we are able to offer this unique experience for only £215 for a week-long Voyage. The voyage fee includes all food on board and the use of the wet weather gear. Every member of the Afterguard also makes a donation towards the Voyage.

Can my friend come too?

No problem but only one friend, as it is all about making new friends during the Voyage

What do I do next?
