Beautiful sailing chaos on the high seas for non-sailors.

Welcome to the Philippines Challenge, the sailing adventure holiday for non-sailors. Aboard a locally skippered ‘paraw’ tri-maran you’ll embark on a voyage over the turquoise oceans and across pristine, uninhabited islands around Boracay. If you can sail, great, but if not, your skipper and crew will take care of the navigational stuff for you. It’s just up to you to make sure they’re going the right way. There will be challenges in the Philippines Sailing Challenge – think fishing for your dinner, climbing coconut trees and generally using your cunning and resourcefulness to outsmart the other teams – and there will be chaos. It’s Castaway, minus Tom Hanks. BYO Wilson.

The challenge is split into several legs, each slightly more awesome than the last and there will be a combination of sea based and Island based challenges. You’ll be challenged physically, mentally and sailingly (that’s a new word), but a little slice of island paradise will never be far away. And the whole thing is designed to make meaningful contributions to the communities and cultures you’ll visit along the way, so you can rest assured that your epic adventure has impacted the Philippines positively. So grab a team of 2 or 3, sign on the dotted line, and join us for the Philippines Sailing Challenge. It’s chaos on the high seas. And it’s all you ever dreamed of!
