You'll come and meet me in the marina where I will be waiting with some delicious refreshments and local snacks. We’ll go through some basic safety instructions and then together we will look at the charts of the area and chat about where we will sail and what sort of weather conditions we're expecting. When everyone is happy we’ll head out and get the sails up. I think it’s super cool when people want to get involved so if that’s you then you’ll be doing all the hoisting and steering and pulling on ropes; however if you prefer to just relax and soak up the beautiful surroundings then I am equally happy to do all the sailing stuff. When we’re full of sea air, our hair is sufficiently windswept and our insta stories are posted we’ll head back in to the marina. The experience will last around 4 hours. We love those evening and sunset tours, but if you prefer going sailing at another time during the day than that can be arranged. I'm flexible, so if you have any specific requests then just let me know.
Growing up on the south coast of England, I started sailing when I was young and have sailed professionally on different yachts around the world. My partner and I love adventure so some years ago we bought a sailing boat in Florida and spent a year sailing around the Bahamas and Northern Caribbean. Since then we've always had our own boat as we love exploring the archipelago around Kristiansand with our 3 yr old. By offering this experience I hope to create a way for more people to enjoy this spectacular 'Skjærgård'. I am sure you'll love it!
Local refreshments and snacks, but please feel free to bring your own if you wish. Please let me know of any allergies.

Weather conditions will set the stage and each sail will be an unique experience. My goal is to give you the opportunity to experience the beautiful coastline this area has to offer. We may venture deeper into Topdalsfjorden, cruise along the Kristiansand waterfront, or explore the small anchorages in the extensive archipelago; but wherever we end up I will share some interesting info and stories about the area.
My sailing boat is a lovely 26ft modern classic with space for small groups of three, which gives me the opportunity to offer an intimate and unique experience to all of my guests.
