Emily Morgan

EMILY MORGAN still has a couple of berths available for their 2015 eastbound Transatlantic passage.

This is a great opportunity to cross the Atlantic ocean. Build your sea miles and experience with unforgettable ocean sailing at its best! Use this trip as a qualifying passage for your RYA Ocean Yachtmaster exam, learn to use a sextant and gain experience of extended cruising or just enjoy the adventure.

Emily Morgan has crossed the Atlantic many times and, as an MCA category zero yacht, is fully equipped for a safe crossing. You will be looked after by owners and hosts Anna and Bones Black, both experienced sailors with thousands of sea miles under their belts. Guests will be expected to be involved fully with sailing the boat including watch keeping, steering, sail changes, cooking and some general maintenance.

Emily Morgan will start in Antigua at the historic Nelson’s Dockyard, a unique piece of maritime history and set sail for Horta in the Azores. The exact route will depend on prevailing weather conditions to ensure the best sail across the Atlantic but this first leg will be approximately 2600 nautical miles, taking 15 to 17 days.

Then you will stop in Horta for a few days giving enough time to explore this lovely island.

After the stopover in the Azores, head northeast for the second leg of the voyage. Again, taking weather conditions into account, it is approximately 1250 nautical miles and will take about 8 to 10 days.

PRICE: The cost of the whole trip joining in Antigua on 7th May 2015 is £2,400 (approximately US$3590, check here). This price includes captain & 1st mate, all food and soft drinks whilst at sea, and all running costs of the boat. It excludes personal travel/medical insurance (a requirement for all guests), flights and local taxes.

It is preferred that guests commit to the complete passage of 3850 miles over 23-27 days but they will consider breaking the trip down into the two legs: Antigua-Azores, Azores-UK.
