A sailing holiday really can provide life-long memories, and the best way to enjoy such a break is with a group of your friends. But alongside all the fun of visiting some of the best islands, towns and cities that the Mediterranean has to offer, a holiday on the seas has other benefits too.

Sailing holiday tips and tricks - Getting in shape while you have fun on a boat

If you want to get hands-on with sailing during your time away, you might find yourself returning home with a body that is not just tanned but toned too. This is because the manoeuvres involved in sailing a boat can increase the muscle strength in your upper body. Not only that, sailing can improve your cardiovascular health, meaning that you are working out whilst you’re having fun!

And if you’re learning how to sail with your friends, you might find that your relationship is strengthened. As you work on your communication skills, you might find yourself heading home even better friends than when you departed.

But if all of that sounds like too much hard work, rest assured that even soaking up the sun on the deck of your boat can have benefits too. Simply being near the open water and enjoying the soothing movement of the boat can calm even the most anxious of minds. So if you want a holiday that offers fun, fitness and freedom, you can’t go wrong with a sailing break.
