There's no need to don a wetsuit, all cruises are run aboard our cruising yachts based at the Trident Marina Kinsale.
You can choose from a day or half day sail.
A half day will have you sailing the yacht to either the Old Head of Kinsale or around the Sovereign rocks giving you a chance to get a feel for trimming the sails and steering the boat. Your professional skipper will encourage you to get involved in the sailing of the yacht; alternatively you may sit back, relax and enjoy the spectacular scenery.
A full day sail will allow you more time to explore the surrounding coastline and the beautiful sheltered harbour of Oysterhaven.

After lunch and a bit of relaxation you can put your new found sailing skills into practice while cruising back to Kinsale.
