Sail & Party

 

Trips marked with a green band on the list. What is specific for them? First of all - the size of the fleet. Often over 25 vessels, lots of young people, tons of parties, fun and joy. Numerous  daystops with snorkeling, diving and jumping into the water, drinks and chillout. Less time under sail, the easiest seas with almost no waves and short hauls.
It is the perfect choice if you want to gently enter the world of sailing, go crazy on the parties and you are looking for a big event!

A typical day onboard during the SAIL & PARTY trip:

Morning on a boat

morning

Wake up! But not too early, about 9-10 AM. Shower, coffee, a bit of tidying up the boat after last night party. Scrambled eggs with another coffee, filling water tanks etc. Departure about 11-ish.

Forenoon on a boat

forenoon

After leaving the harbour  you set the sails together with your skipper and calmly sail towards the picuresque bay for 2-3 hours, where the whole fleet meets for a day-stop: swimming and chilling.

Afternoon on a boat

afternoon

You raise the anchor, unfurl the sails and leave the bay. It's time for sunbathing, napping, reading or cooking and eating something. About 4-5 PM you arrive to your port of call - everyday somewhere else!

Evening on a boat

evening

After docking you have some time to refresh yourself and then go see the city! Explore the old town with your friends, take pictures, find a cozy tavern serving local food and get ready for the tonight's party!

Night on a boat

night

About 10 PM a huge party in the club takes off! It is exclusivly for our group! Our best DJ will play just for you and special deals await you at the bar. Have fun, dance, drink and sing till the sunrise!

Sail & EXPLORE

 

Trips with the yellow band - a bit less spectacular, but more exotic, focused rather on exploring new places, discovering new countries and tasting different cultures. Fleet usually consists of 3-6 boats which allows for more flexibility and agility. Distances are a bit longer, sometimes we even sail at night - it's an unforgettable experience! With a yacht you can reach places otherwise inaccessible which makes it perfect way to see more, learn more, experience more, especially at places like Caribbean or Thailand.
If you have a soul of an explorer and you want to spend the holidays of your life - these are trips for you!

A typical day onboard during the SAIL & EXPLORE trip:

Morning on a boat

morning

Sometimes you will wake up to the gentle rocking of the boat on the morning tide - especially in the tropics it's popular to spend a night at anchor, but it's not a rule. Departure is usually (but not always) quite early, but only 1-2 people are needed to help your skipper - the rest can snooze. 

Forenoon on a boat

forenoon

When everyone feels like getting up it's time to have a breakfast under sail (if you haven't had one in the marina). Meanwhile your skipper leads the boat to the new exciting places. After few hours a stop for coral reef snorkeling and free diving! We always try to vist all the best spots!

Afternoon on a boat

afternoon

After snorkeling, we sail some more and arrive to the final destination. It's exploration time! Historic old town? Caribbean jungle? Thai waterfalls? Seychellois nature park? Quads? Caves? Scooters? Paragliders? Bike? Hike? Volcano? It depends where you are! Possibilities are waiting!

Evening on a boat

evening

When done with sightseeing you get your well deserved relax! Discover local cuisine, spices, drinks and entertainments unavailable anywhere else. Learn the different habits, traditions, beliefs and customs. Meet new exotic people and enjoy new scenery and nature around you!

Night on a boat

night

Party at the most extraordinary location in the world! Dance on the bar, in the tropical forest, in a club on Ibiza and at the raft restaurant! Have fun at 30th floor of Bangkok hotel and on a luxurious 50 ft catamaran. Find and cross your limits, take the best from your life!

Sail & ADVENTURE

 

Blue ribbons mark a special offers for the adventurous. We do not organise trips in this formula very often, but if you manage to get a place on one of them you can be sure of getting the lifetime experience. It could be the offshore regatta, it could be the ocean passage, it coud be the few-days-long hauls or the cold seas. It is all about the true offshore sailing not for faint hearted - but on the other hand you don't need to be an experienced sailor either!
Perfect trips for adrenaline addicts, a dream of the life adventure coming true! And not only for the old sea dogs!

A TYPICAL DAY ONBOARD DURING THE SAIL & ADVENTURE TRIP:

Morning on a boat

morning

You can not fit the adventure into the rigid timeframe, so do not trat this description as a bus timetable. In the morning you might be watchkeeping, or seting the sail, entering or leaving the harbour! You might be sleeping or still partying in a port tavern nearby! Forget the city routine!

Forenoon on a boat

forenoon

No matter if you are at sea or at harbour, life onboard has its own rhythm measured by watchkeeping system. It is someone's duty to cook a meal, someone else is taking care of the boat and the course. The rest of the crew should be resting and gathering strength for their turn. Together you make a crew with the common purpose!

Afternoon on a boat

afternoon

The yacht is your home and the means of transport to the most amazing places! Take care of it and cooperate with the rest of the crew and you will discover the most amazing places - wild fjords, hidden bays, quiet villages and open oceans! Feel the freedom of sailors!

Evening on a boat

evening

Feel the affiliation to the community of sailors from all over the world and ignore the boundaries! Dock in the marina and have fun with the crews of the smallest yachts and largest ships, share it experiences and emotions! Nothing beats the feeling of getting to a safe harbour.

Night on a boat

night

Take a challenge and stretch your limits! Sail at day, at night, in the storm and in the calm. Sail for a few hours or for a few days.

"It isn't that life ashore is distasteful to me. But life at sea is better."

Sir Francis Drake

 

 

 

still not sure if sailing is for you?

Huge part of you have never tried sailing at all, not to mention sea sailing. Many of you are full of unnecessary doubts. You worry about comfort, sea-sickness, your skills and strength. You erroneously expect drills, effort and struggle.

LUCKILY YOU ARE COMPLETELY WRONG!

 

Sea cruise

You will do great!

Our trips are designed that so everyone could take part in them! We provide experienced, professional, english-speaking skipper for you. It is his or her job to take care of everything. We do not expect any skill of you, and probably you will not be the only newbie in the crew! All you have to know is how to have a great fun!

On the other hand, if you want to learn anything - our skipper will be there for you, glad to teach and explain anything you want to know. Sometimes you might be asked to assist your skipper with some easy tasks like setting a sail or throwing a mooring line. 

Most of the time you will be enjoying your cold drink under the hot sun of Mediterranean Sea, swimming in a warm, cristal-clear blue water and taking the best pictures of your life!

you will spend comfortable holidays!

Modern sailing yachts are comfortable and spacious. We charter only big and safe vessels, designed to be easy in handling and offer maximum possible space for the crew - at least 195 cm (or 6' 5") inside from floor to ceiling. Boats are also equipped with refrigerators and often freezers, hot fresh water systems and at least 2 showers and flushing toilets (sea type). Good quality interior and exterior audio systems, sometimes also TV and state-of-art electronic navigation systems. Great capacity of onboard batteries allow to use everything without limitations.
