Inspiring Long Distance Yachting Stories

Dec 13, 2022 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

When quoting yacht insurance before clients embark on voyages, it’s always compelling to hear their plans for long-distance yachting. Have you been thinking about a once-in-a-lifetime trip?

Here’s a little inspiration we’ve found online for long-distance yachting adventures:

A dream couple’s getaway

Husband and wife Peter and Antonia shared their experiences of sailing from San Francisco to New Zealand. They were both already experienced sailors with years spent out on the ocean. Antonia, who shared she had taken a crew position as a cook in the Caribbean, grew up sailing with family in San Francisco Bay.

They made their way from the US to New Zealand without mishaps. In hindsight, Antonia said she felt they were overprepared with food stores. The most important thing for their adventure was knowing they were a good team and they had a good vessel. Supportive family members bought them a life raft and an Emergency Position-Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) to have on board.

Unforgettable youth experience

A group of 10 young people in the United Kingdom got to experience yachting as part of a program by Youth Action Wiltshire and the Tall Ships Youth Trust.

The students, aged 12 to 15, got to try their hands at crew positions on a trip from Plymouth to Swansea aboard the famous 72ft Challenger 4 yacht that has circled the globe twice as part of the Global Challenge Races.

While on the Challenger yacht, the youth got to try steering, food prep, and of course, cleaning. It was a life-changing encounter with practical life skills and learning they could work as a team to accomplish a goal.
