Eve will start her voyage from Cowes on the 16th May 2023, and sail 850nm to the City of Gdańsk in Poland, to arrive for the 28th May 2023. You will have the chance to gain experience sailing offshore while crossing through the English Channel and feel what it’s like to be at one with the elements.

You will also have the chance to gain plenty of miles if you are after a fantastic mile builder passage to log for your personal use.

There is an airport on all the main islands we will stop at, so you might want to plan your air travel from our departure location in advance before setting sail.
