Although we aren’t intending to come across as competitive or too forward here, we thought we would take a few moments to put together a short list of reasons why we think sailing holidays are better than cruises. Don’t worry, it didn’t take us long: because, well, you can’t top a great sailing holiday!

What makes a ailing getaway special - Get closer to the people you love

1. THE INTIMACY

Whether you’re holidaying with close friends and family or with people you have never met before, as well as experiencing a holiday of a lifetime you’ll also be spending time investing in friendships that will stay with you forever. Shared experiences are important for both forging new and deepening old relationships, with good conversation and a lot of laughs further enriching your dream holiday.

2. THE RESTORATIVE POWER OF SAILING

As well as providing you with quality time you can spend with family and friends, your sailing holiday will also bring you closer to nature and allow you to step away from the hustle and bustle of daily life for a while. Enjoy some you time as you look out across the ocean and soak in the sea air that is so wonderfully restorative for body, mind, and soul.

3. TRAVEL IN STYLE ON YOUR SAILING HOLIDAY

From sunning yourself on your very own private deck and enjoying a chilled glass of bubbly as you watch the sunset over the ocean, to creating your own unique itinerary that will allow you to travel to and spend time in the locations you have always dreamt of visiting, sailing is an effortlessly stylish way to travel and gives you the much-deserved opportunity to follow your heart’s every desire.

4. THE FREEDOM

You never know when an ideal swimming, snorkeling, or paddle boarding opportunity is going to arise and on a sailing getaway you will have the chance to indulge whenever the mood strikes. Also, if you fall in love with a secluded cove, picturesque coastal town, or tranquil stretch of coastline, there’s no reason why you can’t choose to spend a little extra time there.

Ocean views and a little exercise - Paddle boarding is the best
