Your living expenses
Some people join Flying Fish with a lot of spending money but most are on a budget.
If you stay in our accommodation you will share a kitchen with housemates from your course or event and you can eat quite cheaply.
Expenses in the UK
In the UK your accommodation is shared self-catering. Our accommodation is fully equipped with kitchen, washing machine, tumble dryer and dish washer. Most customers spend a few nights cooking at home with the rest of the nights spent at one of the many bars and restaurants in Cowes. We recommend you budget £100 – £150 per week for living expenses.
In Greece, you will stay in the Fish House – a shared self-catering crew house in the heart of Vassiliki. Because the training takes place in a tourist environment, you may be tempted to eat out more than normal. At Club Vass, where the majority of your training takes place you will be given an account card, the balance of which is paid off each week. Flying Fish customers are given a discount at Club Vass. There are local cafes and supermarkets so if you are on a budget you can cook simple meals at the Fish House. We would recommend budgeting around 250 euros a week.
Similar to Greece but there are no discount cards. You will stay in shared self-catered accommodation and there are many very good bars and restaurants to choose from. We recommend budgeting $350 per week. When on a live aboard sailing course or event, food is provided while on-board.
