We offer a number of different offshore Mile Building trips for those who want to learn to sail or for those who wish to build distance towards qualifications. Mile builders are the best way to develop your skills in the most cost effective way. Our European Mile Builders take you away from the coasts of the UK and will usually be much longer than our UK Mile Builders so are perfect for those aiming to pursue RYA courses.

This is not just about moving boats from A to B, but about giving people opportunities to develop and experience life onboard. We have a number of different trips and legs of journeys to cater for a range of availabilities and our goal is to ensure everyone on board has an enjoyable time and leaves knowing a little bit more about sailing.

The fee ensures there is always a yacht master onboard to answer questions and give instruction as well as covering fuel and berthing.

Please bear in mind however, that our schedule is subject to change if bad weather forces us to delay departures, pull in to wait out a storm, or if we have to make any last minute changes due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and different countries’ quarantining rules. See our Covid Policy for more details.

COVID-19Updated: 5th September

Due to the on going pandemic, please be aware that the schedule is subject to change depending on different countries’ quarantining rules and where you all get on and off the boat. Please check for where you’re getting on and disembarking the boat for each leg you plan to sail on as there’s different rules for each country and it also depends on where you are coming from.

Currently people arriving into France from the UK don’t need to self isolate, but arrivals by sea will need to sign a ‘Declaration sur L’honneur’ form stating that you are not suffering from Covid symptoms.

Spain’s borders are currently open. However there are requirements to follow, such as filling out an online health form, visual health assessments and a temperature check.

There’s a chance that you will have to be subject to health screening in Portugal.

Please also be aware that once you have arrived at Las Palmas and are taking part in ARC, then you will be expected to self isolate in your crew bubble for a minimum of 7 days. A good chance to get to know your crew mates!
