Your Hobart sailing experience begins as you board your 62-foot (19-meter) luxury cutter, a ‘cruiser racer,’ that provides the excitement of sailing on a high-speed ocean-racing yacht. Help to hoist the mainsail as your skipper sets off along the River Derwent toward either Storm Bay or the calmer waters of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, depending on the weather.
Relax and soak up the salty sea air on the spacious sundeck, or try your hand at manning the helm of the boat under full sail. While you visit off-the-beaten-path coastal locations like isolated beaches, watch for marine life such as seals and dolphins, gaze up at albatross in the sky and cool off with a swim from the yacht. You may even get lucky enough to spot a pod of orcas or catch sight of migrating whales.
When hunger strikes, head below deck for gourmet Tasmanian food and drinks for morning tea, afternoon tea and lunch. Your sail ends with return to the departure point.
