The Location

Sailing from Poole Harbour, the destinations we may be able to visit during this voyage include Brownsea Island, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, or depending on wind direction, Weymouth or to Lulworth Cove, or Torquay.

Your Accommodation

The Queen Galadriel, (named after the Elven Queen in Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings) is an original 1930’s Baltic Trader from Denmark which has been fully restored and is run by the Cirdan Sailing Trust, mainly for groups of young people with varying needs. Here at Dementia Adventure we have witnessed first-hand for years how much benefit people with dementia and their carers can derive from joining a group sailing trip like this—even if they have never sailed before. When Cirdan offered to host our groups on board we jumped at the chance —expanding our sailing offer to two voyages—one in the sheltered Essex Blackwater Estuary and this one, sailing from Poole on the South coast and exploring the wilder waters of the Solent and the English Channel. Once on board, the group become active members of the crew, and we aim to help everyone to achieve as much as they can during the voyage. The feeling of camaraderie which develops naturally on a trip like this one can be brilliant, life affirming and with long lasting benefit. The vessel itself has two separate bunked cabins and two rows of bunks, this means we will be able to give our clients a degree of sleeping privacy but that the general nature of the voyage is a communal one. The boat is very well presented and maintained and offers a light, airy comfortable living space with good headroom— as well as hot and cold running water, a shower and three toilets. The Cirdan Sailing Trust supplies all safety equipment including lifejackets and waterproofs, and the crew comprises a skipper, first mate and bosun.
