Extended Mile Building – Experience Builders to and from the Channel Islands

This is an ideal opportunity for sailors looking for day/night hours and miles for their Day/Coast Skipper or YachtMaster certificates or equally looking for adventure by sailing to new places.

We have single berths for the following two passages available:

3rd to 10th August: Ipswich to St Peter Port,Guernsey – Likely ports of call are: Dover, Eastbourne, Southampton, Weymouth and Cherbourg*

24th to 31st August: St Helier Jersey to Ipswich – Likely ports of call are: Cherbourg, Weymouth, Portsmouth, Brighton and Ramsgate*  

*Please note that all planning is subject to wind and tide but each leg will include a night passage and a number of stops ashore over the 7 days which allows some contingency for adverse or unfavourable weather.

This sort of passage is exactly what Viking Blue our fast blue water cruiser was built and fitted out for as she will comfortably accommodate 6 crew and Skipper/Mate and facilitate a 2 watch system operating around the clock when required. You can info@vikingmariners.co.ukand we will be happy to discuss this exciting opportunity with you in greater detail.

In the meantime, you can find out more about what to expect from a mile building trip on our our blog >
