Scotland Mile Builder

Scotland Mile Builder

The Equinox Scotland mile builder is a great opportunity for sailors of all levels to gain more experience and sea miles in most of Britain’s most beautiful passages.  Sail day and night and occasionally out of sight of land; experience living and eating on board all under the watchful eye of your skipper/instructor.

It’s an ideal opportunity for RYA Day Skippers to gain experience and work towards their  RYA Coastal Skipper or their RYA Yachtmaster Qualifications. There will be two opportunities to skipper a 200 + mile passage under instruction.

Your skipper will be an RYA Qualified Instructor so you will have the opportunity to learn as you cruise over 600 nm.

Our yacht “Rho” is a 10 berth yacht and we generally sail mile builders with 5-6 crew – i.e. enough to sail properly, but not ‘packed to the gunwales’.
