Offshore Sailing Holiday Anyone?
What’s it like sailing offshore on a schooner like Trinovante?
What’s it like onboard when the wind blows a bit?
Well…. Offshore is very different to coastal day sailing in sheltered waters and it’s impossible to describe exactly how different it actually is. You have to be there.
First off, not being masochists, we must point out that we do our utmost to avoid going sailing in extreme conditions but, as people often ask, we made you all a video with some windy weather.
Max wind speed here was gusting force 9.
See if you can spot John out on the bowsprit in one of the clips. He is putting a couple of extra sail ties on the jib.
