Experience great sailing aboard one of Europe’s fastest growing sailing classes. The Seascape 18 was born from single handed ocean racing experience and rethought to deliver the same sensations on a tame, accessible, easy to handle sailing boat. “Chill” takes 1 or 2 people along with the skipper for a race in the area just outside Bodø Harbour. Even a moderate wind will get the boat partly out of the water for maximum speed – which is more than half the fun. “Chill” is fitted with all the sail and navigation equipment that you will find on a large and modern sailboat for cruising or regatta. Only everything is smaller and lighter giving a full response on every little input you make in the trim of boat and sails. You must be able to swim to book this trip, but we will of course supply life vests and suitable clothing. We normally need minimum 2 guests to do the tour. If you are the only guest booking you will have a 100% refund if we choose to cancel.
