Ocean Passage Training
Ocean Passage Adventures with expert instruction on our luxury Hallberg-Rassy yacht 'Merlin'.
Experience the long Atlantic Ocean waves with the wind and sun on your face. You will observe sunrises, sunsets and amazing stary nights. Be surprised with playful dolphins and admire the bravery of lone turtles as you enjoy the sailing and the beauty of being at sea.
We sail on the same seas as the Volvo Ocean and Clipper Race boats but in a more comforatble and less tiring environment. We take time with all our customers to prepare and equip them with the skills to face the ocean passage with confidence. If you dream of real blue water ocean sailing why not sign up for a passage aboard 'Merlin'.

Chris and Aideen would like to welcome you aboard Merlin, a beautiful luxury Hallberg-Rassy 46. Merlin is very well equipped with a large spacious saloon and room to sleep four guests in two twin cabins.
Our concept of cruising is a combination of great days sailing with enough time to relax and explore the places we visit. Join us on our adventures to interesting destinations both in Ireland and The Canaries. These locations allow us the freedom to use local marinas or anchor in secluded bays.
