First time sailing? … or want to be carefree?
Our goal is to make sailing holidays accessible to everyone. We do this by providing expert skippers who will help you navigate your yacht throughout the week. You can get involved and learn the ropes, or sit back and relax while they sail you to your next destination.
There is no substitute for local knowledge; being able to read the winds that funnel between the islands to make the most of the sailing, revealing the best kept secrets to take you off the beaten track and ahead of the game. Even if you have sailing experience, with a skipper on board you get to relax and enjoy being carefree, because looking after a boat and ensuring the safety of the crew is a lot of pressure that requires concentration as well as competence.
How does it work?
You will be in direct contact with your skipper before departure to help plan your route and answer all of your questions. Not only are they professional yacht handlers, they are also approachable and knowledgeable about every destination ensuring you get the most out of your holiday.
With years of experience, our skippers can read social situations as well as the water. They are cheerful, confident and relaxed, and will be as discrete or interactive as you desire. Our clients often become firm friends with their skippers and ask for them again when returning for further adventures.
When you choose a yacht, bear in mind that your skipper will need to sleep in one of the cabins. Catamaran have specific crew cabins.
