Bermuda is a colourful must-see destination. The Azores Islands Cruise is an opportunity to visit some of the unique and very different volcanic islands which might include Faial, Pico, Terceria and Sao Miguel. Experience overnight passages, watch-keeping, boat handling, sail trim, navigation, VHF, AIS, Radar, provisioning, boat systems, passage planning and weather forecasting by Iridium satellite. Great confidence builders for sailors and non-sailors with all levels of experience including boat owners and partners who have yet to try off-shore sailing and are maybe thinking about or preparing for their own future sailing adventure to far off lands. Experience living on board an authentic ocean-going Round the World yacht. Enjoy your own berth in a shared cabin. Use the passage for mile building, essential for anyone working towards their RYA Yachtmaster Coastal or Offshore qualifications.
