Skippered sailing holidays are typically more about the 'holiday' than the 'sailing', with average sailing legs around three hours. When you're not sailing, you're swimming, eating local cuisine, sunbathing, snorkelling, hiring scooters, relaxing in a hammock, jumping into the sea, going out for dinner, having a sunset drink, fishing, heading to a nightclub, playing cards, eating breakfast... You get the idea!

"There’s a sense of liberty on a yacht that you just can’t get any other way on this kind of coastline. And while the skipper does all the hard work, clearly loving every minute of it — whipping sails and ropes into shape while throwing capoeira-type shapes in bare feet on the deck — you get to do nothing but watch the world go by. It’s all one, giant, super-playful Boy’s Own adventure. With your own yacht, the whole coastline becomes one big beach."
