East Coast Flyer, Bermuda Lunenberg, 24-30 June 2020
Sail with us between Bermuda and Lunenburg. Challenger is making her way back from the Caribbean in May- the crew will fly into Bermuda and enjoy the last 750Nm of the 1650Nm journey back to Nova Scotia.
The two days training provided before departure will take you step by step through all aspects of safety on board and show you how things work on deck. So, whether you are totally new to sailing or looking to develop your skillset we can accommodate your needs.
Bermuda is, of course, one of the most beautifully maintained islands in the Caribbean or near the Caribbean region. Its heritage with the British Navy gives us many interesting architectural sites to visit as well as such things as the Marine Research Discovery Center, the Maritime Museum, the Botanical Gardens, Glass Beach, Dockyard historical area and shopping mall and the Royal Bermudan Yacht Club.
Lunenburg is different from Bermuda in almost every conceivable way but in the same instant every bit as interesting and engaging. It is a UNESCO world heritage site and offers such things as whale-watching trips, fishing trips, art and ceramic galleries, cafes and bistros, an award-winning Maritime Museum, beautiful accommodation in heritage buildings, golf, and kayaking & hiking tours.
