Skippered Sailing Holidays

Why not explore any of our 20+ destinations with your very own skipper. Our skippers are fully qualified and hold a wealth of local knowledge to ensure they build an itinerary that is personalised to you and your party. Your skipper will captain your yacht, giving you plenty of time to truly relax and enjoy your surroundings. Feel free to get involved with the skippers help and expand your sailing knowledge. ** 

*If you are interested in chartering in any of our Mediterranean destinations, you will need formal qualifications. Port authorities throughout the Mediterranean require various levels of formal qualifications. In Greece, the skipper should be accompanied by at least one crew member (First Mate) of “Competent Crew” level or a similar/equivalent certification from any recognised sailing association. 

**When adding a skipper to a bareboat, remember that they will require a cabin and provisions for the duration of your charter.
