This event is highly subsided by CraigSailing CIC, where the fee covers the yacht charter, limited cruising fuel and overnight mooring costs in a selection of accessible marinas. All we ask in addition to the fee is for each member of the crew to bring victuals to make one main dish for up to 6 people. Of course, don’t forget to bring any nibbles (please see covid-19 guidelines). A list of meal ideas will be circulated between the crew a few weeks before departure.
