Bermuda Bound | Key West – Bermuda
Apr 14 – Apr 27 | $3950
Join Sea Dragon at the southernmost point in the US to sail through the Bermuda triangle! This is a bluewater offshore passage, starting with riding the Gulf Stream north of the Bahamas, before finding the Atlantic Ocean. We’ll make contact with Bermuda Radio and make our way through the cut into St George’s, where we’ll anchor in the well protected harbor loved by sailors. It will be time to explore whether by renting scooters to tour the island, heading over to Tobacco Bay to snorkel, visiting the Swizzle Inn, or many more options in this wonderful spot!
All meals on board Sea Dragon are delicious and vegetarian, with the addition of fish if we catch any along the way.
This is not a trip for the infirm or physically unfit – you MUST be able to go up and down the companionway and move safely about the boat while in rough conditions, have good balance, and be in reasonably good health.

I grew up in North West England, spending every weekend outdoors in the Lake District. After attending university in Cardiff, I worked as a personal trainer, working in the Middle East for a time before discovering the Clipper Round the World Sailing race. I became completely hooked on offshore sailing and after completing half the 19-20 race (pre Covid!) I gained my Yachtmaster qualification in order to be able to work in the industry. I became the skipper for a youth trust based in the Solent, England, working with young adults in order to widen their horizons and build their confidence which I found immensely rewarding. The itch to see more of the world by sea led me to becoming a freelance cruising instructor which enabled me to work with a variety of companies on a range of boats from 20’ to 70’, cruisers to high spec race boats. I spent some time in the Caribbean and around the UK helping refit boats until the Clipper Race restarted. I returned as a first mate, helping lead a crew of amateurs from the Philippines back to the UK and also completing my own circumnavigation. Having already seen the North Pacific, I’m excited to be on board Sea Dragon and explore more of the Pacific’s waters and islands- showing others the joy of ocean sailing, discovering the world around them and our effect on it, as well as teaching them to sail and work as a team.
