Welcome to the world of 

Spirit of Oysterhaven 

Ireland's largest Sail Training vessel and flagship of

Oysterhaven Activity Centre

Spirit is on her way from  Martinique to Guadeloupe, arriving In Antigua in April in time for Antigua Classic Regatta.

Following the Classic Regatta she will begin her homeward voyage, via Bermuda to the Azores where she will spend two weeks cruising among the islands before commencing her homeward voyage back to Ireland for another season of Sail Training commencing at the end of June 2017.

In September Spirit will sail across Biscay for the Algarve where it is planned to haul her out and do a final refit before, reluctantly, putting her up for sale.  After 20 years under current ownership she has never been in better shape and the time has come to pass the helm to a new owner to enjoy more adventures and explore new horizons with her.

If you would like to join the crew of Spirit of Oysterhaven on this voyage just get in touch at spiritofoysterhaven@oysterhaven.com and we can let you know when and where we have berths available. 

We need to make the voyage cover its costs so everyone is expected to make a contribution to share running expenses, which for Ocean Milebuilding voyages averages out at €50 per night. For island hopping and coastal cruises, such as cruising in the Caribbean or Azores, guest crew will be paying €120 per night, and for events such as Antigua Classic regatta it will be €180.

All crew members will be members of Spirit of Oysterhaven Club for which the annual subscription is €50.  This will also entitle you to avail of other crewing opportunities aboard Spirit during the season when she is back in Ireland.
