Adventure to France
The France Adventure sailing trip covers much greater mileage than an Explorer Trip. Head to sea properly and sail for a few days or nights and really get into life on board an ocean going yacht. We aim to allow a good bit of time to head ashore and explore, but as distances increase so does our reliance on weather windows & conditions. Adventure sailing trips are great intermediaries between explorers and expeditions.Apply today
