8D / 7N Hong Kong to Taiwan (Kenting) to Naha (Japan) Mile Builder - 18 September Departure
Looking for a sailing adventure or mileage for a sailing certification course? Join us on a mile builder cruise from Hong Kong to Naha.
The mile builder will provide you with offshore qualifying passages in preparation for assessment for the IYT Yachtmaster Offshore Certificate of Competence.
The emphasis during these cruises is on enjoyment and confidence building.
It will be a very hands on program where you will be involved with navigation, helming and watch duties. We will also be underway at night, so this would be the perfect opportunity for you to clock some night sailing mileage.
The journey will begin in Hong Kong where the team will assemble and prepare the boat for the passage. We will spend 1 night in HK and depart early next morning at sun rise.
Leaving the marina, we will immediately set course for Taiwan (Kenting). The passage is approximately 350nM and we will sail through the Taiwan Straits and arrive in Kenting on day 4 depending on the weather during the passage. We will stop over in Kenting for 1 full day to explore the sights and attractions in Taiwan and proceed onto Naha on day 5 to arrive on day 7/8.
- All meals on board during the passage - Plenty of hands on experience on an offshore passage - 800 logged sea miles
