Deluxe Join In Sailing Holidays and Cruises
Come on your own, with the family or a group of friends for a holiday with the choice to actively sail, learn new skills or sit back. Normally on a join in holiday people take part in the sailing and other activities but it is not too taxing, not compulsory and guests can make their own time for relaxation. As with our charters we provide good quality fixtures and fittings and the price is all inclusive.
For all our guests we aim to offer a quality service with a difference:

Join in Sailing Holidays and Cruises
For insurance purposes we do not actually bare-boat but our prices are so competitive that you will have a hard time getting a decent bareboat for less. Meniscus is more homely than any bareboat so why not let us take care of you and remove all the hassle? Your Yacht Charter includes crew and the boat is fully provisioned for you. You can still plan, navigate and crew to your heart’s content but let us look after you, show you the best sights and anchorages as well as give you some extra tuition as you go. With us on board you can have a real holiday, save the stress and probably even save money.
For past friends and people who want to crew and experience all the joys of boat ownership, learn about living onboard, the cruising lifestyle, help with the general sailing, maintenance and share costs. There will be opportunities to join cruises combined with exploring in a much more relaxed style as well as helping with maintenance tasks and repairs. Meniscus always needs attention and she appreciates your help. Experience is not required but very welcome. More important is willingness and a keen desire to learn and take part.
Your Charter Vessel/ Safety Equipment
She is named after the Meniscus moon, the smallest crescent of the new moon and was fitted out in Gweek, a village at the top of the scenic Helford River in Cornwall. She is a modern classic, designed by Bruce Roberts and proven to be a robust blue water cruiser with a reasonable level of performance as well as being capable of withstanding heavy conditions should the need arise. She has proved herself, in well over 200,000 sea miles, to be a good all round boat capable of making good passage times and sailing through several serious storms. She has also beaten many larger boats in races and regattas around the world.
As a charter vessel Meniscus carries all the safety equipment required by the MCA and other governing bodies for a vessel of her size engaged in chartering and sailing offshore.
She complies to all structural and other requirements.
