The World is your Oyster...

“Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before” ~ Dalai Lama

With so many idyllic locations to choose from, how could you possibly decide where to go? We’ve chosen a few to get you started.

The tranquil waters of Greece, the rich waters of Croatia, the unspoiled French waters, the culturally rich Thailand, French Polynesia, Tahiti, or will it be Bali and the East Indonesian Islands this year or next?

The choice is yours…

Sailing Conditions and Sailing Ability

The Saronic Gulf or Ionian Isles in Greece are where conditions are generally more moderate. If you have only limited previous sailing experience possibly gained by dinghy sailing at local club level or perhaps acting as an occasional crew member on a cruising/racing yacht, we recommend you enrol on a pre-flotilla or RYA training course either pre departure or in resort, by prior arrangement with us.
Crews sailing from bases such as The Dodecanese or Sporades in Greece, the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia or bareboat charter, can expect more challenging sailing. Therefore formal qualifications plus a higher degree of sailing experience and navigational knowledge are usually required. In the absence of qualifications, a resume of your sailing experience backed up by a reference from a recognised sailing club may be accepted in some areas (though generally not in Greece & Croatia).
The larger yachts require skippers with experience of handling yachts of a similar size and an internationally recognised qualification such as Coastal Skipper or higher may be required, though in general an ICC qualification is widely recognised and accepted. In all cases please check with us that you have appropriate qualifications and experience. Furthermore, original certificates must be taken with you.
