Do you want to try sailing without committing to a long journey? Then this is the perfect experience for you!

Spend 2 nights on board the Maybe and enjoy this short break from your daily worries! For all Windseekers over 15 years old.

Ports

Brixham is a fishing town in Devon, south-west England, famous for its annual Pirate Festival. The Brixham harbour is very picturesque, and a wonderful place for a walk. Grab some fish&chips and go exploring! Visit the Golden Hind Museum Ship, the replica of Francis Drake’s famous vessel, and the Heritage Museum to learn about local history. Afterwards relax on the Breakwater Beach, or – if you’d rather stretch your legs – take a walk to Berry Head National Nature Reserve and admire the views.

Falmouth lies near the southwestern tip of the United Kingdom. It’s a quaint port town, surrounded by grassy hills and forests, and famous for its harbor. Going on a hike here is very rewarding! Sailing is a popular pastime in Falmouth, so don’t be surprised if you’re engaged in a lively discussion on the finer points of navigation over a beer in one of the local pubs. Falmouth has been a kind port to Tall Ships, hosting the Tall Ships Races in 1966, 1982, and 1998.

This Journey is covered by the STO Garant guarantee. You can find the conditions for this guarantee scheme on STO Garant’s website (www.sto-garant.nl/en/downloads).

 

What does it mean?

In short: you do not pay the booking amount to Windseeker but instead into an escrow account. This trust account holds your payment in reserve until your journey’s end. The booking amount is then released to Windseeker on the day after your trip ends. If Windseeker or the Ship should become financially insolvent before the end of your trip, STO Garant will implement the guarantee. The Guarantee Scheme details how you can make a claim under the guarantee in such cases. You can read more about this here.
