This might seem like aiming for the stars, but I’ve been wondering whether I might get myself to Mallorca on a Sunseeker.
£35k will get you a second hand, fairly snazzy looking boat. Factor in £5k for the fuel to get there and I would need to raise £40k during the month-long course (or slightly less when you think it’ll take 50 hours of solid sailing to get there!)
It might seem ridiculous to expect to raise so much in such a short time, but if I’m going to do it I may as well aim high!
Does it matter that I don’t even know how to captain a boat or have a license? Probably! I may also need to factor in paying a professional captain, or start making some good connections with student sailing societies in the hope someone might fancy a free ride to Mallorca over the summer.
I can certainly imagine less comfortable ways of achieving the course goals!
