*Places at request* Spend a week on board of the Lord Nelson and explore the English Channel. You will start the journey in Southampton and sail towards France. There you might be able to visit one of the coastal towns, or perhaps the Channel Islands – all depending on the wind! Eventually you will sail back towards Great Britain and on to the picturesque town of Fowey. Open for able-bodied and disabled trainees. Minimum age 16 years. More info: info@windseeker.org The final price may be subject to small changes due to currency exchange rates.

Ports

Southampton, on the shores of the Solent, is the largest port of England. The bustling town offers plenty of distractions, and is known (sometimes reviled) for its brutalist architecture. However, the city hosts a number of fine museums, the Tudor House, and long stretches of medieval walls. Also, the beautiful English countryside is just a short drive away. The yearly Southampton boat show in september should be on any Windseeker’s calendar. And don’t forget to visit the Isle of Wight!

Fowey is a small port town in Cornwall, in South-West England. Sitting at the mouth of the steep-walled Fowey River valley, Fowey is a cute tourist town, filled with pubs, cottages and an enduring fishing legacy. Walk between castle ruins, coves and caves in the surrounding bays, or go for Fish and Chips alongside the harbour. Every August, the Fowey Regatta brings a plethora of boats to the town, a more peaceful meeting than the with ‘Fowey Gallant’ pirates of the 1400s.
