SOUTHWINDS

Posted on

Make the most of your day exploring Sydney Harbour while aboard Southwinds, a magnificent 61ft’ yacht constructed in 1950. Built with Huon Pine planks and spotted gum ribs, Southwinds holds a significant role in English design pedigree as well as Australia’s yachting history. A quintessentially Australian experience, admire the beauty of Sydney Harbour with a glass of champagne, family, friends and colleagues — all the while sailing amongst some of Australia’s most treasured and historic sights.

Southwinds was designed by Robert Clark the famous designer of Gypsy Moth IV, aboard which Sir Francis Chichester became the first man to complete a single handed circumnavigation of the globe.

Her original plans date back to 1948 and include pencils of her keel profile and cabins, inks of her lines, half breadth and ketch. Sail plans lie in London’s Greenwich Museum and her specifications are registered with Lloyds.

BAD WEATHER
This is an all weather vessel. The charter would only be cancelled in the event of very extreme weather conditions, such as a cyclone.

SEA SICKNESS
It is fairly uncommon for passengers to suffer from seasickness on a harbour cruise. Should the water become choppy due to windy conditions, the skipper will cruise the more sheltered areas of the harbour. However, if a passenger does become unwell for any reason, we can arrange for them to disembark at the nearest wharf or by water taxi.

DIETARY REQUIREMENTS
Our chef can accommodate most dietary requirements. However in extreme cases we recommend passengers arrange their own catering.

CRUISING WITH CHILDREN
Children of any age are permitted on-board with parental supervision.

CRUISING WHILST PREGNANT
There are no restrictions with regards to a Sydney harbour cruise whilst pregnant. Just ensure you notify the chef of any dietary requirements.
