Culinary Sailing Holidays

Great food and wine on deck and on shore

Unique cultures, fresh ingredients, and fine wines create a sailing holiday with a sensory twist. Try something new and explore family-owned vineyards, traditional ristoranti, and distinct local dishes in some of the world’s most tempting sailing destinations.

Join a food and wine flotilla and experience the coastal cuisine of Croatia or Italy, calling in at fantastic restaurants and renowned vineyards to sample ripe produce. Sail the Amalfi Coast in search of the world’s best anchovies. Sip limoncello on deck, or tuck into fresh Croatian figs and a glass of Plavac Mali. Your favourite restaurant could be just around the bay.
