Adventure Sailing

Come aboard for a great 5 day adventure on board Spirit of Oysterhaven. 

Explore the rugged coast, enchanting harbours and hidden anchorages of West Cork aboard Ireland's national Sail Training vessel, the Spirit of Oysterhaven.

Discover the thrills of helming a 70 foot schooner on the open ocean, learning to operate winches, setting sails and piloting at night along coastal waters and rounding the Fastnet Rock or Mizen Head. 

Enjoy the challenges and rewards of the camaraderie that develops among the crew as you take responsibility for crewing the vessel - from the deck to the galley - and extend your boundaries of adventure.
