Delivery Passage from Tierra del Fuego to Cape Town 9 May - 20 Jun 2016 - Including RYA Shorebased Yachtmaster Course
Pelagic Australis will be embarking her crew at Puerto Williams on the Beagle Channel on 9th May 2016. After the 5 day RYA course on shore, the vessel will depart for her transatlantic voyage. This 4500 mile ocean passage is expected to take 40 days or an expected ETA into Cape Town of about June 20th. Including a week’s cruise up the Beagle Channel, then a rounding of Cape Horn, stops will also include Stanley in the Falkland Islands and possibly the remote island of Tristan da Cunha, weather permitting.
The focus of the passage is for students to not only study the RYA (Royal Yachting Association) syllabus for the Yachtmaster Shore Based Course, but also to fully experience and grasp every aspect of what it takes to pilot and crew an ocean sailing vessel across the breadth of the Atlantic Ocean. The miles gained en route are over twice that required by the RYA for the license.
Please Take Note: This is a hands on situation and is not a leisure cruise. Crew members will be required to stand a watch throughout, take turns at cooking, cleaning and maintaining the vessel. A reasonable degree of fitness and vitality is necessary for making this an enjoyable experience. In order take part in the RYA course training it is essential that the student is fluent in spoken and written English.
Experience Required: This is not a voyage for beginners. Every crew member is expected to have a reasonable degree of offshore experience to fully benefit from the course, not least of all in having a chance in passing it, which is not guaranteed. An RYA Day Skipper qualification or other equivalent is the level we are looking for. Every prospective crew must submit any qualifications they have, plus a sailing CV in order for Pelagic Expeditions to judge whether he or she is suitable for this specialized voyage. There is no age limit, but we stress again that in order to benefit from this passage and the course, a reasonable degree of fitness and a high level of self motivation is required.
