Daily activities.

th main cabin at nightth IMG 0980th spring swimFirst thing in the morning the skipper will need to check the weather forecasts this is about 08.00 am.  Then morning meditation, followed by breakfast and then a clear up. Before setting out sailing we might do some exercises based on Tai Chi to help your balance and get you better attached to the boat, then time to prepare yourselves and the boat for sailing. During the day we will be sailing, where and how far we go is weather dependent, with a stop for lunch and possibly a swim.

For Sailing you will work as a team crewing and taking turns steering the boat (Helming). There are different helming exercises and if you’re Ok with it, some Blind Helming. Middle of the day we will anchor in some beautiful part of the coast , you will prepare lunch, soup, bread, cheese, cold meats, cake and then some consider the best part of the day a ‘siesta’. Sail on for the afternoon.

Toward the end of the day we will find a safe and beautiful sheltered creek a suitable place to anchor, and there we will have dinner cooked by you and followed by clean up and the formal group time, facilitated by the skipper/therapist, which is a time to reflect and process the day’s events and issues arising. You are encouraged to think and an important question worth considering is ‘how does this experience help you ashore in your recovery ‘. The rest of the evening is free and prepare for sleeping in your bunk. If conditions are right there will be on one night sail of about 2hrs. On the last evening you will be expected to complete evaluation forms these are very useful and important this is your chance to help us and to assess your SOK session.  The last morning there is a big clean up after breakfast so it looks good for the next group and some time to say ‘Goodbye’. Hope you get all you need and wish for. Think big.
