Your safety is vitally important to us, so we always consider your individual requirements before setting sail. All guests can be involved in planning the trip and every guest will be allocated a life jacket at the safety briefing on the first morning where the safety procedures will all be explained.
Naturally all safety equipment such as life jackets are provided and maintained to the highest standards. Sailing Spook is coded as a category 2 vessel with the Maritime and Coastguard agency and between us, Skippers Andy and Russ, we have more than 70 years of Sailing experience, which ensures your day is safe, fun and enjoyable. We also offer a fair weather guarantee.
Russ Yeatman (Business Owner / Skipper / Cleaner) on COVID-19
"I truly believe we have one of the safest and cleanest yachts it is possible to have. The configuration of the boat with 5 toilets and 6 sinks allows us to provide each household and the crew with dedicated facilities which they do not have to share with others and the size of the yacht at over 16m long and 4m wide provides a great amount of space allowing everyone to "Social Distance" whilst aboard.
Along with dozens of hand sanitisers and anti bacterial sprays we also carry 1000 litres of fresh water so there is never a shortage of hot water for cleaning hands and surfaces and the yacht is thoroughly deep cleaned between each trip.
As a business we have fully committed to Covid Secure and carried out a detailed and thorough Covid-19 Risk Assessment. Many of our existing procedures and safety measures were clearly helping already with this and we have put a number of additional hygiene measuers in place to make us even more robust in this area. We are also operating with reduced numbers and larger gaps between trips right now to help minimise risks to everyone. All 4 main crew members live with high risk people and so whichever 2 are aboard we are all extremely focused on hygiene.
I firmly believe that being an outdoor activity with good solid procedures in place Sailing Spook is one of the best places to be right now and as a person with a very vulnerable child I feel totally at ease being on the yacht."
