Holiday Idea's

I have great fun throughout the year cruising out of Milford for the day. I would like next year summer to try a longer cruise/passage as a holiday for upto a week. I'm not thinking of taking my boat and I'm not thinking of being in charge/responsible. I have found one option of an "Adventure Break" sailing from Milford to Lundy and onto the Scillies and back (yes I did say sailing but I'm open to any ideas).
Basically I love just being out there on the water and would like to spend a week seeing some more of UK waters. Has anyone out there done anything that would fit the bill that they could recommend or have any ideas. I have never sailed and my only powerboat qualification is level 2.

Sailing is a totally different ballgame - need REAL knowledge of the sea!!!

Really like the look of these - just love the traditional rigs with bowsprits!!!

Did I ever say I was??? Don't need to be an expert to realise that things get a bit more difficult without an engine..........
