Skippered Sailing Vacations

Who is a skipper?

A skipper is a fully qualified and professional captain who will be responsible for sailing the yacht from one hidden gem to another. They will have hundreds of hours experience in sailing many different types and sizes of yachts. They are often local to your chosen destination, therefore come with a wealth of knowledge to make your sailing adventure the best it can be.

Whether you are new to sailing vacations or are simply looking for a helping hand on board, we have made it easy for you to plan your perfect sailing holiday.

What is a skippered charter?

You will hire a skipper to take the helm, navigating your yacht throughout your sailing holiday. With their local knowledge, the skipper will provide their expert tips and advice on must-see stops to enhance your itinerary, and to get the best from your chosen destination. The skipper will stay on board the yacht throughout the entire duration of your sailing holiday. The skipper provides added security and comfort for new sailors or beginners who aren’t quite ready to take a yacht out or don’t have the qualifications to do so. Experienced sailors may also hire a skipper to take advantage of the local knowledge or to allow them to relax knowing everything is taken care of.

We offer a ‘Skippered Charter Package’ in the BVI, including the skipper, skipper provisioning (food and drink), and Wi-Fi, with our sister company, The Moorings. Read more on this package here.
