Welcome to SailBluePlanet the home of safe and secure skippered family sailing holidays and RYA training courses on the island of Corfu.

This year enjoy a skippered sailing holiday or join an RYA practical course, with the husband and wife team of professional RYA Yachtmaster, RYA instructor, acclaimed musician and pop star Rick Driscoll, and his lovely wife Sarah, on board the comfortable Sailing Yacht ‘Blue Planet’, a 46 foot Beneteau Oceanis Clipper.

Our operating area is Corfu Paxos the Ionian islands and the Greek mainland which has proved itself to be one of the safest locations in Europe, having had only a tiny number of Covid 19 cases during the whole pandemic of 2020.

Couple that with being in the safety bubble of a sailing yacht, and you and your family can feel as secure as is possible in the current climate.

So whether it’s a relaxing sailing holiday in the sun, or an RYA practical course, you can be sure you’re in safe experienced hands.

Capt Rick is a highly qualified Yachtmaster and RYA cruising instructor who has operated in the safe waters of the Ionian Sea for the last 15 years, he knows the best locations and the most fabulous restaurants that the area has to offer, (many clients have referred to a cruise with us as a ‘Gastro Tour’).

Rick’s wife Sarah has huge experience at sea, having worked as hostess and deckhand on the 100 foot sailing yacht ‘Spirit of Bowfish’ and the 112 foot Superyacht 'Xanadu' in the waters of the Mediterranean. So I’m delighted that she will be joining us on board Blue Planet to help your holiday run smoothly and comfortably.

So whether it’s a relaxing sailing holiday in the sun, or an RYA practical course, you can be sure you’re in safe experienced hands.

"We would just like to say again what a fantastic holiday you gave us.  I couldn't begin to decide what we enjoyed most, learning a bit about sailing, the good company, the non-stop music, the brilliant places you took us to swim and explore, the restaurants you suggested for evening meals......I could go on and on, but I guess you know"…!!!

Loads of love Julia Weston and family ( Cruising holiday)

…."We spent an amazing week on Blue Planet, Rick Driscoll's wonderful boat. He mentored us in the practical aspects of the knowledge and skill requirements of the Day Skipper course with panache - just the right balance of discipline and laxity that made sure that we all learnt to the best of our abilities. Successfully, as it happens: we all came off the boat with our certificates, thanks to Rick's careful instruction".
