A relaxing Labour Weekend Break where you can do as little or as much as you like, while you cruise enjoying sunset nibbles, BBQs, home-style cooked meals and everything else taken care of (dishes etc), take some time to read a book, play some board games and just RELAX!

All walks are optional, you may wish to stay on board and relax, there may be a shorter walk option that would suit you better.   Please understand you are responsible for your own safety and actions during these unguided walks.
