Your holiday is a huge part of your year. Spending some time together without the hustle and bustle of daily life, phones ringing or bills to pay for a week or two. Bliss. But a good holiday needs to be carefully planned, otherwise you can end up swapping your crowded life at home for a crowded one abroad.


One of the best ways to beat the crowds is to set off on a sailing holiday. It’s the perfect way to relax together or with a group of friends. It means no more queuing up for meals, fighting over sunloungers or trying to swim in a pool with children diving in on top of you.
Relax on board as you travel along the coast of your chosen destination, stopping off wherever you fancy along the way. Take in the sights, try a little sunbathing on one of the tucked-away beaches and explore some of the local towns and villages.


At night you can enjoy some lively nightlife before heading back to your boat for a great night’ s sleep – and you don’t need to worry about doors slamming or people coming and going early in the morning. Peaceful when you want it to be, adventurous at other times… a sailing holiday really does give you the best of both worlds.
