We offer a number of different offshore Mile Building trips for those who want to take their sailing to the next level or build miles towards qualifications. Mile builders are the best way to develop your skills in the most cost-effective way. Our European Mile Builders take you away from the coast of the UK and offer blue water sailing experiences. Those who join our trips tell us they leave feeling more confident to skipper longer more adventurous passages.

We have a number of different legs to cater to a range of availabilities, our goal is to ensure everyone on board has an enjoyable time and leaves being a little more skilled.

We ensure there is always a professional instructor onboard to answer questions and give guidance.

Please bear in mind that our schedule is subject to change if bad weather forces us to delay departures, pull in to wait out a storm, we have to make any last-minute changes due to any unforeseen circumstances.

As an RYA Instructor Germaine enjoys passing on his experience to others and finding ways of sharing his passion for this sport with as many people as possible. This is what inspired him to create a not for profit organisation that gives people the opportunities that normally allude them. An excellent problem solver

Boat details

The boat is a 2008 racing-ready Beneteau First 40.7; a racer that embodies all the aspects of a racing pedigree, with the added provisions of comfort in mind. Whether you’re a novice, or an experienced competitor Escapado can put a smile on your face.

As a company, our priorities lie in providing the highest quality and service, this is why we have invested heavily in upgrading Escapado and there are elements of cutting edge technology on board. We offer competitive prices for bareboat charters and individual crew berths, with extended lead in and out periods that allow all teams to get the most out of their experience.

    Exceptional, complete, hard and demanding. A challenge that requires the capacity for suffering, the navigation is continuous without respites or stops, guard changes every 4 hours, warm bed. IT IS AN EXPERIENCE TO REPEAT after recovery
