Vendia Classic Yacht Sailing Vacations & Regattas



Cruising on Vendia

On our cruising trips you will be signed on the ship as genuine members of the crew. We take a fairly leisurely cruise up or down the Eastern Caribbean Island chain, stopping at several idyllic locations en-route. You will have the opportunity to take part in all aspects of sailing the ship from hauling on lines to steering a course to, of course, making a cuppa for your shipmates!
At the beginning of the trip you will be allocated to a “watch” headed by one of our full time professional crew and each ‘watch’ takes it’s turn at running the ship. There will be the chance to make an overnight passage or two when the watch system really comes into it’s own. One watch on, one watch sleeping (or star gazing/reading or just generally chillin’).
These are really fantastic trips for experienced and complete novice sailors alike.

Good ‘mile building‘ for those going for exams and full tuition is available from one of our experienced RYA instructors (and examiners!). Give and take as much as you want to from these trips. We promise your voyage will be a memorable experience and you will often make life long shipmates.

Nothing can prepare you for your first sight of the classic racing in Antigua. Little pocket rockets, working boats and “small” classics mix it with magnificent schooners and 100 foot ketches. J-boats thunder past under full sail whilst Carriacou Sloops do battle.
The racing is up close and personal so bring your camera! From the stable decks of Vendia you will be able to produce images suitable for any glossy magazine or calendar! The onshore activities are equally impressive with bars, bands gig racing.. oh and the occasional rum!
