The Lady of Avenel can sleep up to 12 guests in comfortable twin berth cabins. We provide duvets, pillows and bed linen.

The social hub of the ship is the saloon and galley. Tasty meals are prepared and eaten here. Freshly caught mackerel is a popular choice. This is also the space for coming together for a discussion or class but also for relaxing and watching the stunning scenery drift past.

What shall I bring with me?

Bring practical clothing and lots of ‘layers’. Wearing layers just means that you’re ready for all conditions and you’ll (hopefully) never get cold. Walking boots, welly’s or sailing boots/shoes are recommended. A sun hat and warm hat are helpful, as is sun cream and waterproof trousers and jackets – you never know what the weather will do. Bring a swimming costume/shorts and snorkeling gear for the beaches you visit. Don’t forget your sunglasses! Gloves may be needed for sailing and handling ropes. A note book, sketchbook and novel will keep you busy in between watches. A head torch is handy for night and evening watches while you’re sailing. Last but not least, and just in case you’re prone to getting cold, please do not hesitate in packing an extra warm fleece even if it is the summer.

Oh – don’t forget your camera, you’re going to see some amazing sights!
