Just a few reasons to start sailing:

  • We offer wide range of sailing holiday experiences for all abilities and budgets
  • There are 25 worldwide destinations to choose from
  • You can combine a beach club holiday with a sailing holiday
  • Sailing is perfect for families, couples, groups of friends or anyone looking for fun out on the water

What our customers are saying

We had a great time. It's the perfect sailing destination. Especially for relatively inexperienced sailors like ourselves. The wind is consistent but not too strong - all in an idyllic setting; silver sands and torquoise waters. And there's mooring bouys instead of harbours, much easier to hook up to than mooring with lots of people watching!

One Week Flotilla Sailing Holidays

We had a fantastic time. First trip on a flotilla and with an 8 month old baby! Not much wind, but as we were not very experienced this was no bad thing.

Martin Stone Meganisi Flotilla Sailing Holidays

It was our very first flotilla so it was good to be in safe hands. The staff were both very friendly and professional in their approach. They work extremely hard with hardly any time off to themselves during the flotilla.

In the space of a week we learned so much from having to do everything ourselves (just the two of us on board) and just through being in contact with the very knowledgeable staff. You could socialise with others and at other times be on your own (there were a few organised meals and barbecues) so the balance was perfect.
