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 ashore is self-catering. You should budget for evenings out and for occasional meals away from base. We recommend a minimum of £130 a week.

When you are staying on board your food is provided but if there is a crew decision to eat in the pub you will be expected to pay your bill.

Australia and Greece

In Australia or Greece you will stay in shared, self-catering accommodation. Because the training takes place in a tourist environment, you may be tempted to pay a lot for food and entertainment.

We recommend €250 a week in Greece, $350 in Australia. If you can afford more you will find it easy to spend, but it won’t be strictly necessary.

As in the UK, when you are living on a yacht your food will be provided but you will have to pay for occasional meals ashore.
