Be aware this isn’t for the faint hearted and you’ll certainly try new things like showers in the ocean and learn to enjoy the food onboard after a hard day’s sailing! But don’t worry once you get to the other side in St Lucia, you’ll all get to let your hair down in one big party! (fancy dress too!)
