Five good reasons why you should sail with us

Whether you’re looking for a sailing holiday with a skipper or an RYA sailing course, here are 5 reasons to choose us:
1) Safe,friendly and fun. We are aware that you can find cheaper skippered charter holidays. However, you have to ask yourself the question,"how well trained is your skipper?" Many charter companies offer cheaper holidays by saving money on so-called skippers who often lack professional qualifications. Our yacht Blue Planet, carries the highest safety coding which is precided over by the UK dept of transport. It's really not worth gambling with your family's safety! Other companies have hidden extras like cleaning and fuel costs, with us it's all included.
Working in association with the No Stress Rya sea school, we operate one of the largest and most comfortable Training yachts in Corfu.Your skipper/instructor is Captain Rick Driscoll, a British RYA Yachtmaster and RYA Cruising sail instructor who’s commercially endorsed by the UK Department of Transport, which is your guarantee that you are in the safe hands of a highly trained professional . He’s excellent company, is a 70’s pop star, and featured on the recent ITV1 series
“Corfu A Tale of Two Islands”. Watch a clip here

2) Idyllic Ionian seas Greece. Based on the beautiful island of Corfu, we sail in the warm and sheltered waters of the Ionian sea, whose mostly benign conditions are a stark contrast to the Aegean sea, which is often plagued with strong gale force winds during the summer months, (Meltemi). Here in the Ionian sea, we rarely have such problems, making our cruising area, which often includes Paxos, Anti Paxos, Lefkas, Kefalonia, Ithaca and the west coast of Greece, a comfortable experience.

3) Freedom and flexibility. Because we’re independent and owner-run, we give you far more personal attention and flexibility than a larger operator–whether you’re on skippered sailing holiday or a learn – to – sail course. Check our availability

4) Local expertise. We know these gorgeous Greek islands like the back of our hands. So you’ll discover enchanting unspoilt beaches, moor up in the most picturesque fishing harbours and dine at fabulous tavernas in stunning settings. Read more about the tavernas

5) Experience. Over the past 12 years we’ve successfully trained scores of sailing students and delighted numerous families, couples and solo travellers with our sailing holidays – so you can relax in the knowledge that you’re in good hands. See what our customers have to say
