How to Spend your Days

Your crew will help you plan your perfect route so you get the most from your charter, whether you wish to maximise the miles covered to explore as much as possible and the time spent sailing or to enjoy short island hops and find quiet bays where you can just relax and enjoy the watersports.

You can be as involved as much as you like in the sailing. Experienced sailors can get more involved sailing the yacht with the crew on hand as required.

Most people choose a combination of two to five hours per day sailing with a mixture of some overnight stops in quiet bays and others moored in pretty villages or small towns where you can explore and enjoy evenings ashore.

The typical daily pattern is usually lighter wind in the mornings where you can motor or sail to a lunch time anchorage, relax or enjoy the watersports with more wind in the afternoon for some fun sailing towards your evenings' destination.

For those wanting to cover more miles, with favourable winds, you can explore further afield and visit more towns and small cities and some of the quiter little harbours and islands as well.

Watersports, Sailing & Yacht Toys

The yachts have rib/tenders ideal for the crew to take guests ashore. Some of the yachts offer extra powerful or larger RIBs as well as a ski boat for water-skiing, wakeboarding and towing inflatable toys. Kayaks, fishing gear and snorkelling gear are also available options.

You can be as involved as much or as little as you like in sailing the yacht.

SUP (stand-up-paddleboarding) has taken the water sports scene by storm and its as close as any of us will get to walking on water. Its a wonderful way to explore the bays and coves, as well as getting a full body workout. The SUP’s are wide and forgiving and can be mastered in a few minutes.

Whether you are an experienced diver or a beginner scuba diving you can often fit some diving in with your sailing trip.

Food & Drink

The food is a big part of the experience and the combination of good local ingredients and your chef’s imagination is a great mix. We will ask you in advance about your preferences for food and drink as well as approximately how often much you feel you may wish to eat onboard and how often ashore so the crew can forward plan.

Most people like to have a mix of eating ashore at one of the local restaurants or tavernas and enjoying the chef's food onboard. We've included some example menus and unless you tell us otherwise this will be a good example of what you will receive in a typical week.
