Got a question about our sailing holidays? You’ll probably find it’s answered here.
If not, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Q: What day do we leave?
A: All trips depart early Saturday afternoon with check in starting at 1pm.
Q: When does the trip finish?
A: All yachts return to port Friday afternoon with departure from the yachts in the early evening.
Q: What are the cabins like?
A: Each cabin sleeps two people with a mixture of twin single bunks or double beds, complete with additional storage. All beds come with linen and have windows and easy access to above deck.
Q: What do you mean that you sail and other providers don’t?
A: Most of our competitors run high capacity motor cruisers that are powered by engines. Our boats are Sailing Yachts meaning that they are designed to use the wind as their main means of propulsion. There is still an engine, but we only use this if there is no wind or to manoeuvre in smaller inlets & bays. This provides you with a genuine sailing experience and you can even learn to sail from our qualified skippers if you wish.
Q: I have never sailed before?
A: Each of our yachts are skippered by a licensed yacht master, who will provide you with all the knowledge you need. The skipper can manage the yachts without your assistance, so if you wish to simply bathe on the sun deck for the entire trip then feel free. Our skippers are passionate sailors and tour leaders, so should you wish to get hands on and learn the ropes of sailing a yacht, they will be only too happy to teach you everything you want to know.
Q: I am travelling by myself?
A: All of our yachts have cabins with twin single bunks.

Q: Can I bring my own food and drink on board?
A: Yes! You are able to bring your own liquids and snacks onboard at no additional charge, which can provide substantial savings. We provide water free of charge. There are local shops and supermarkets to replenish supplies on most days.
Q: Are there power points on the yachts?
