School holiday

Sailing holidays

Family adventures between terms

Leave their homework behind and forget packed lunches and PE kits on a school holiday sailing adventure. Take advantage of the break between terms to explore some of the most exciting, family friendly sailing destinations in the world. 

Visit the sparkling Caribbean during the Easter holidays, where you’ll enjoy pirate islands, family friendly beach restaurants and excellent snorkelling for the kids. Use the summer holidays to explore the easy line-of-sight sailing in the Mediterranean and the far-flung Whitsunday Islands, and swim the barrier reef of blissed-out Belize for a Christmas holiday getaway with a difference. Your kids will love beach combing for shells and other trinkets on pristine, untouched shores, and fishing from the deck of your boat for monstrous sea creatures in Australia and the Caribbean.

Bareboat charter holidays

Experienced sailors will love the freedom of a bareboat charter holiday. A bareboat yacht charter means it’s just you and your family, letting you adventure wherever the wind takes you and anchor shore side for as long as you like.

School holiday flotillas

Flotilla sailing holidays are ideal for families and groups, letting you socialise with other adventurers in some of the world’s best sailing destinations. Explore the Mediterranean or the Caribbean with your new flotilla friends, sailing on your own or in groups by day and meeting up to socialise on shore each evening.

Skippered charter holidays

Sail in safety and improve your confidence on the water with the help of an expert skipper. A skippered sailing holiday helps to take the pressure off, giving you the chance to relax on deck and spend time with your family while benefitting from the best local insights and advice.
