Northern Child is an independently run charter company specialising in racing and cruising in the UK, Caribbean and Mediterranean. When chartering with us we want you to enjoy the experience from the first time you contact us to when you return home with fantastic memories from your sailing adventure. Northern Child has been operating as a charter yacht since 2002 and in this time we have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience which helps us to ensure that you have a great time.
Individual Sailing – A key part of what we offer is individual berths for events. Not everyone knows 8-12 other friends who can all take a weeks holiday together and want to go sailing. We offer sailors the opportunity to pay for a spot and we put a crew together of like-minded sailors. This has worked tremendously well for us and the crews. For events like this we offer two days of training before the event so that all the crew can get to know each other and also get familiar with the yacht and racing manoeuvres. You have the choice to stay aboard or we can help you to find accommodation ashore.
Wholeboat Charter – Northern Child is available for wholeboat charter with just an owners rep or we can provide two or three members of crew to help you get the most from Northern Child. The crew can be as involved as you desire. With a couple of training days before the event the crew can help you optimise Northern Child and help your crew to race Northern Child competitively. This gives you the chance to get on the podium.
