Adventure Cruises 2022

Sailing Adventures, join us for fun packed adventures in some challenging but beautiful sailing areas. In 2022 we are planning two adventure cruises one to Normandy (already fully booked) and a second to St Malo. 2020 was scuppered by Covid so in 2021 we planned, once again, to head to St Malo with two boats and then weather hit (remember the start of the fasnet 2021). The trip was reduced to 7 days making St Malo a bit of a race so we headed to Normandy with two boats, discovered a small island and had great fun. In 2022 we have decided to try July for our big trip in the hope that the weather may be fairer. Come and join us to explore the Brittany Coast taking in the amazing Iles Chausey and the Channel Islands. 

We have hand picked the ports of call along the way for both trips but equally we are flexible and as a member of the crew you will have a say in where we go and how long we stay. This is a great chance to build some miles whilst sailing in some fantastic waters, there will be opportunties to skipper legs if you would like and to do some interesting pilotage. Alternatively you could just come along for the ride, relax, take in the sun and the views and get a bit of sailing under your belt.

Trip costs include all food on board, mooring fees, diesel and use of waterproofs.

  To view the details of the cruise see the tabs below or explore the map - click on the menu icon imenu iconn the top left corner of the map screen and select your area of interest. The map is fully interactive and you can explore the ports, harbours and routes by clicking on the pins and lines. We have added some pictures and a bit of an outline about each place we visit. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Destination Guide


Here's a little taste of some of the harbours we might visit. Although, as there are so many to choose from, and the tides can be difficult to juggle it may well change slightly, everyone has a chance to get involved with some interesting planning and pilotage.

St Vaast 
Welcome to the oyster capital of Northern France.  Stunning views at low tide of the bay and the old prison island.
Carentan/Isigny Sur Mer/Grandcamp Maisey
Spoilt for choice for our third stop - all very interesting approaches. If you end up in Isigny - don't forget the cheeeeese!
Port en Bessin
A small fishing harbour west of Arromanches during the Normandy landings of World War II. The village was between Omaha beach to the west in the and gold beach to the east.
A pretty little town near to the famous Juno beach of the D-Day landings
Deauville / Trouville
Well-known all over the world, Deauville is a high-society seaside resort renowned for its festivities and its prestigious establishments
Ports don't come any prettier than Honfleur on the Seine's estuary. Glorious historic houses jostle for position on the quays, as do galleries and restaurants.
Gosport - Brittany Coast - St Malo - Guernsey 7th-15th Aug 2021

Looking forward to some new destinations on this cruise along the Brittany Coast, again tidal dependant at times adding to the fun.

Îlses de Chausey
This was the highlight of the trip last year. Spectactularily beautiful achorage amongst the archipeligo of islands, islets and rocks.  There are 52 islets at high tide and 365 at low!

Omonville de la Rogue
This destination is very much a staging post to get through the race and make the most of the tide, if weather is not conducive we will head for Cherbourg and go from there.

A popular harbour with a town that has seen many changes throughout its long history, it's more recent investment has been improving the towns leisure offer.

Really looking forward to visiting this ancient walled community on the Brittany Coast. Said to be a lively town and very french.

St Malo
Again a beautiful walled city with small cobbled streets and a view over towards Jersey. You can walk the whole city wall, look out at sea or down into the town. Visit the many artisan shops or spend some time on the beach. Interesting navigation through the largest lock I have ever been in.

Definately a favourite of ours in the Channel Islands, lots of things to see and historical places to visit, good food and shopping if this is your thing. No longer dependant on tides to get into the marina as the external pontoons are now all walk ashore.

Just returned from my 1st Nomad Sailing experience, it was amazing. I joined for the 7 day adventure cruise to the Channel Islands but due to extreme weather the plans had to change. I was kept well informed and we set sail Sunday. My first night sail post Day Skipper .. first watch rota .. first F6 sailing.. always felt safe.. could do as much as I wanted..encouraged all the time, great crew, great sailing and time in ports to look around eat and sleep. Lots and lots of laughter, don't hesitate to book with Nomad.
Very hard to actually think of anything that could improve this weekend
Great skipper, great crew.
The safety briefing was particularly good. Crew welfare and importance of rest and food good. Monitoring of conditions and preparation, all sensible and impressive. I learnt a lot.
