Mile building

Malta Yacht Charters ltd offers a range of organised skippered and bareboat charters around Malta, Sicilian and Italian Waters. We are even organising Mile building and will, by popular request, put together some dates for round Malta cross Sicilian channel and the Aeolian Islands. These are informal mile-building trips designed to build up skippered passage experience and sea time, covering day and night sailing. The use of our new Beneteau Cyclades 50.5 is a great boat to sail with a seasoned and qualified skipper always in the background to give advice and encouragement.

Embarkation on Saturday afternoon gives enough time to prepare the yacht for sea, including the safety checks and, like all good skippers; you undertake passage planning, list crew provisions and victual the boat for the trip. We can accommodate 10 cadets at a time.
