Overview

Our trip starts and ends at the bustling and beautiful city of Split. This is a hands-on sailing experience under expert supervision . It promises to be a real sailing adventure hosted by a skipper with hundreds of thousands of sailing miles behind them. You will be fully immersed in all aspects of sailing including passage planning and victualling as well as actually sailing this beautiful yacht. It will also be a relaxed schedule with time to stop at some of the wonderful ports along the coast and explore at leisure and, with a maximum of six crew, we will adapt the itinerary to suit individual wishes. The trip suits singles and couples (we have double and single cabins available) and there is no previous sailing experience required. Given the skipper's experience it will also suit people who want to get some practice sailing miles or hone their existing sailing skills. We can take a sextant with us and practice celestial navigation in a relaxed and sociable atmosphere if desired.
