We take joy in sharing our sailing knowledge and taking time to teach our guests “the ropes on the boat”. However guests are required to participate in the day to day running of the vessel when it comes to preparing meals, and keeping the vessel tidy.

Luxurious and hardy yacht. Enjoyed my 10 days sailing from the roaring 40's to Cape Town. Captain Kirk and Co-skipper Tor were lovely and enjoyed sailing with them. If you're lucky you'll enjoy the excellent food cooked by the land crew that's in the freezer.
Beautiful and comfortable yacht, extremely competent and happy Captain and crew, but what makes Urchin sailing truly stand apart is their heart. Stuart and Charlie make you feel at home with their sincere kindness and yacht-spitality. The only reason I am sad to not be spending 8 more days at sea is I won’t be enjoying their delightful company. Thanks for a great trip.
