Sailing holidays are by far one of the most exciting trips a person can take, whether a solo expedition or with your partner. However, perhaps the best way to appreciate such a journey is to hop on board a yacht with a group of friends and head out to the open water.

Travelling with friends has some great benefits attached to it, not least the fun that you will have in embarking upon a voyage together. You can avoid the often awkward circumstances of travelling with strangers – with friends aboard, you have a ready-made party in more ways than one!

On board your charter boat you can sit back and relax as you travel from harbour to harbour and take part in any number of group activities, from snorkelling to sipping cocktails on deck while watching the sun set over the dazzling waters of the Mediterranean.

The time spent on water and working together to ensure the trip from A to B is nothing but smooth sailing is also one of the best bonding experiences out there. Even if you do not start out the best of friends, a few days together will strengthen any relationship and ensure that your friendship is one that will last for years to come.

Of course, being a sailing holiday, it is the ports that you will visit along the way that provide the icing on the sailing cake. Rather than visiting the same haunts night after night, each evening is a voyage of discovery. Each stretch of coastline offers its own unique lure, from the bustling nightlife of cities like Split to unassuming yet outstanding locales such as Ermioni in the Greek Isles.

Whatever you are looking for – whether it’s clubbing hotspots or local culture galore as you dash from port to port, a sailing break is the ultimate trip for any group of friends.
