Sailing Holidays

Sailing holidays abroad are very relaxed and  no two days are likely to be the same. Sailing will be mixed with a little bit of swimming, snorkelling, BBQ’s, sunbathing,  visiting local markets, sunbathing on secluded beaches and exploring ancient villages.

 You may decide to drop anchor, jump overboard into crystal clear waters and enjoy a little time snorkelling in the crystal clear water. Evenings could be a BBQ on the beach or an evening meal on the deck. You can watch the sunset and the stars start to appear while listening to the gentle lapping of the sea.  Sailing holidays can be the perfect answer to a busy life.
