MedSailors Sailign Breaks In The Mediterranean

A sailing holiday is one of the most exciting breaks to be had and is guaranteed to surpass any expectations. Encompassing sea, sun and a whole range of sights, sailing breaks truly are a holiday that can offer something for everyone.

However, as much as you may love the sea, you may not be equipped (or feel confident enough) with the necessary sailing experience required to take to the helm. Don’t let this put you off. While it would be easy to assume that this type of holiday is not for the inexperienced, this is not at all the case and a skippered yacht break presents the perfect solution.

On a skippered break, you have all the fun and flexibility afforded by a sailing holiday but with none of the stress. The skipper is responsible for all the nitty gritty details that can often put a damper on an otherwise idyllic journey and takes care of everything from making sure the boat is fuelled and stocked to researching weather conditions and organising moorings.

In addition to this, the skipper as a MedSailors employee is well-acquainted with the area and can be a goldmine of information. With his/her knowledge onside, you can find yourself introduced not just to the world of sailing but also to hidden gems that characterise the shoreline you are visiting. So whether you just want to lie back and relax or to learn the lie of the land as you go, your skipper is there to ensure your trip is, quite literally, plain sailing.

Whether a sea lover or adventurous spirit, the island hopping and variety of sights to be seen along the way ensure a skippered yacht break is enough to sate even the most curious of traveller. With a captain on board to take care of navigating the waves, all you need do is sit back and enjoy the ride!
