Choosing the Right Sailing Destination

More Fun Under The Sun!

With so many amazing destinations on offer, let us inspire your next sailing holiday The 'right sailing destination' is all about what you as a family, couple or group wish to do, see and experience. 

Our destinations are all wonderful and ideal for a sailing holiday, but as an experience they do vary markedly. For example, Italian culture and food is extremely different to Turkish food and culture. Which would you prefer? 

The best place to start when assessing sailing destinations is to ask everyone involved some general questions about where they wish to go (like you would for any other holiday). This is a great way to narrow down the choices quickly. After a yearlong break from the top position, the Dalmatian Islands in 

Croatia have bounced back as the most popular sailing destination in the Mediterranean for British bareboat charters. Turkey is a cultural and historical experience.

While the Saronic Islands in Greece have dropped a spot, it is the Ionian Islands that have made the biggest improvement, buoyed by strong interest in sailing from Corfu. 

 The Dalmatian Islands have gone from strength to strength in recent years. 

It has all the components of a great sailing destination - hot and dry summers, short hops from island to island, great nightlife, easy sailing breezes and beautiful waters. 

 Sailing from Athens, this area is a fantastic example of Greek island sailing. 

Visit small islands with quayside taverns, swim in lovely clear waters, and explore ancient Greek temples and amphitheatres. Enjoy lovely sailing breezes and bask in long hot days. 

 The Ionian is a gorgeous, idyllic and gentle sailing area that British sailors have made their second home for decades now.

Stretching from Corfu to Zakynthos, the Ionian is characterised by light winds, short sailing legs, quayside taverns and a relaxed disposition.  Explore beaches and bays inaccessible by road, feed loggerhead turtles, visit thermal mud baths, get a birds eye view while paragliding from 1600m or snorkel over ancient submerged villages. 

 A stunning sailing area with hundreds of islands scattered down the Croatian coast. Unesco listed as a place of outstanding natural beauty, the Kornatis are perfect for 'getting away from it all'. Visit dramatic uninhabited islands and isolated moorings. 

 Marmaris offers the best of both worlds - discover a lively bustling tourist town and then sail off into the tranquil reaches of the Bozburun Peninsula with its natural beauty, small villages, beautiful anchorages and traditional Turkish restaurants.
