What will the skipper do?

The skipper will sail and navigate your crew throughout the week, taking you to all the hidden gems along the route. The skippers priority is your safety, and after that, to ensure you have the very best experience. Your skipper will show you the ropes if you’re willing to learn, and be a pretty cool friend for the week. Friends need to be fed so the onus is on you to both prepare and sponsor meals for your skipper.

He made our trip! He wasn’t just an amazing skipper but he truly became one of our friends. I cannot imagine having anyone better. All in all he did an excellent job with a smile on his face the entire time!

What will the host do?

The host will freshly prepare and serve all your breakfasts, lunches and two dinners during the week. On arrival, she will also sort the food shopping in line with her meal plan (accompanied by a crew member). You provide the funds, she’ll provide the delivery! She’ll also keep the common areas of the yacht ship shape. It’s thirsty work, and the onus is on you to keep your host fed and watered throughout the whole week. The host herself may be optional but keeping her well-fed is not. Booked a cabin? Your host is included!

She was a life saver. Without her we would have eaten chips all week. So thankful that she was able to join us!

FAQ

How much does a skipper or host cost?
A skipper is €810 which is automatically included on your invoice. A host costs €660 and is optional.
How can I change to a guest skipper on my booking?
As of 2018 it is mandatory to have a TYW skipper on board, therefore you cannot book with an in-crew skipper. Don't worry the skipper will always welcome your assistance when it comes to sailing!
When will the skipper/host be assigned to our yacht?
Skippers and hosts are usually assigned around 4-2 weeks prior to your departure. Once they are assigned you will receive an email with their details to get in touch prior to arrival.
