Our history

Creating holidays for over 40 years

Established in 1974, we are the world’s leading sailing holiday company, delivering memorable sailing holidays in some of the world’s best cruising grounds.

We first set sail from Aegina, on Greece’s exquisite Saronic Gulf, with just seven 25’ Snapdragon yachts. Led by Skipper Janet Green, her Australian hostie Megan and English engineer David Archer, the sailing holiday was so successful that seven more Snapdragons were built, making the first ever flotilla fleet.

All these years later, we’re just as passionate about sailing as we were when we first started. We offer bareboat charters in 25 destinations and guided flotilla sailing holidays in four countries, while our fleet has grown from seven to 538 yachts.

Whether you’re looking for a tailor-made sailing holiday, a skippered or yacht charter, a flotilla or a sailing course, we’ll look after you every step of the way.
