The Cruise 2017 – What you NEED to know!

Over the next few weeks, as the Bitternes Afloat Easter Cruise draws closer, we will be previewing the week’s events, destinations and Spiritual Program to give you a flavour of what to expect.

On this site we will post updates – letting you know about stuff – dates, events and things, but importantly, we want you to be ready for the week. We want you to think about your role in the week! What do you want to get out of the week in terms of sailing, yes, but also your relationship with God?

So, we will post a few questions. But first…

Destination One:

It will be no surprise that the first destination that we feature is a recurring image of the week, a place filled with history, ruins and sheep:

St Benet’s Abbey

Without giving the game away, feel free to make your suggestion below! What program are we talking about?

Or do you have a memory of St Benet’s Abbey? There is a legend of a Bitternes skipper seen standing on the fore deck coiling rope in a gale as his boat sank below the choppy waves…
