Choose from one of four, 7-night voyages on board the square-rigged, 60 metre brig, Stavros S Niarchos, that will depart the historic port of Mahon in Minorca from 12th April (the final voyage departs on 7th May). Prices are currently on offer for £449 per person, including full board and training (connecting return flights extra).
Depending on the prevailing winds, voyages will take in a sample of the rugged and picturesque north coast of Minorca, Majorca and the port of Alcudia or the island of Ibiza and it’s Old Town. In between there will be chances to see some of the stunning wildlife - including land and sea turtles - and drop anchor off sandy coves for a barbeque.
As part of the crew everyone gets the chance to take the helm, handle the ropes, keep watch and learn how to navigate – as well as climb the two masts to set the sails, 120 feet above the sea. The sails are open to anyone aged between 18 and 75, even complete novices.
