Cruises in UK and Mediterranean

Most people on our cruises have not met before, as a result the atmosphere is friendly and there is a spirit of adventure amongst all aboard.

Gwennili Trust offers a range of cruises that last between 5 and 7 days.

All trips are led by experienced RYA qualified sailors to ensure the safety of clients at all times. Skippers are qualified to RYA Yachtmaster Offshore with Commercial Endorsement. Voyages normally consist of three crew (skipper and two mates) and 4 or 5 clients.

Costs:

  1. The beneficiaries sailing as crew are asked to pay £25 to operating costs.
  2. All crew members on the trip, this includes the volunteer sea staff, are asked to pay £15 per day to cover fuel and berthing costs.
  3. Evening meals are usually eaten ashore at individual expense.

The majority of voyages are based on the South Coast of England, but we also operate in Scotland and organise one trip to the Mediterranean each year. To give you an idea of what to expect the photographs on this page are from various sailing trips.

If you are interested in joining one of these cruises then please email cruises@gwennili.org.uk and one of our volunteers will be in touch to discuss your sailing needs.
