With 6 working sails Marie Des Isles keeps us busy when sailing but its not that she won't hold her course without us,she's very well behaved and we enjoy playing, isn't that why we sail?
Tweaking the sails on a schooner is not the same as on a modern boat and some of the adjustments go against what most sailors expect. For example when going towards the wind we slacken some sails rather than try to flatten them and when sailing downwind we set the square sails by simply pulling them out like curtains.
During your stay with us you'll learn the basics in pulling the ropes and the kids will be able to join in and help too. This in itself is an experience not many people are lucky enough to share. Traditional sailing is becoming less and less possible. On your vacation you will play with this amazing classic dream yacht.
