RAFSA currently have two Halberg-Rassy 342 sailing yachts available for members to charter. Atlas is based in Plymouth, Devon and Sir Arthur is based in Ardrossan, Ayrshire. Both yachts can accommodate up to 6 crew with a fully equipped kitchen and 6 sets of foul weather clothing. No towels or bedding are supplied. To charter you need a skipper (minimum qualification day skipper) a mate (minimum qualification competent crew) and at least one more crew member. Either the skipper or the mate must be an in-date RAFSA member to charter.

Charters usually run in full weeks (noon Sunday to noon Sunday although the calendar slot shows as Monday to Sunday).   Weekly rates for 2022 are £800 low season, £900 mid season and £1,000 high season.  Some weekend slots (Friday to Sunday) can be made available by contacting the Charter Manager.

The e-booking system is now working and if you make a booking it will take £100 deposit with the balance due 30 days before your charter.  The £100 deposit is fully refundable provided you cancel within 30 days.  If you run into difficulties or have questions  please contact the (Charter Manager)

Covid-19 (Coronavirus) and Offshore Charter

It is not practical for RAFSA to organise the sanitization of our yachts between charters so we therefore ask crews to wipe down any hard surfaces with a mild bleach solution on departure.  Oncoming crews should undertake a similar cleaning routine as part of takeover.   Some anti-bacterial wipes and disinfectant sprays will be left on the yachts but it is suggested all crews bring their own.  A suggested departure and arrival cleaning routine will be supplied.

If you make a charter booking it is your responsibility to take whatever measures you feel appropriate to ensure the safety of you and your crew.
