The unique ‘Sea-to-Summit’ journey spans 15-days initially battling the open seas in an offshore passage bound for Taiwan followed by an expedition up the majestic 3886m snow-capped ‘Xue Mountain’.
The journey begins onboard our flagship Challenge Yacht, ‘Spirit of Outward Bound Hong Kong’ guided by full-time professional crew for an intense introductory three days of training and familiarisation before setting sights for Taiwan aiming to arrive before the end of the 7th day (weather permitting). As part of the ship’s crew, operation onboard runs 24-hours a day with participants rotating between differing ‘watches’ to manage sail handling, navigation, lookout, food preparation, housekeeping and servicing duties whilst under sail until arriving at the destined port.
Clearing immigration and port formalities, participants will re-familiarise themselves back on solid ground and given an opportunity to reflect on their recent offshore crossing to refocus their mind set and apply newly acquired learnings to better prepare themselves whilst planning for their trekking expedition ahead.
5-days is expected to ascend, set camps, rest and acclimatise before summiting followed by a rapid descent and transportation into the city. Our professional staff will accompany participants throughout the entire journey at all hours until the end of the journey where through expert facilitation will guide participants in an efficient and effective goal setting session to utilise their recent learnings from targeted outcomes and aid useful transference back to their everyday lives.
