FAQs

Your questions, answered

Food and Drink

Throughout the holiday you will need to provide proper food and drink for the skipper. Bear in mind they are working all day and it is all they eat for half the year, so healthy sustenance is important. Generally, breakfast and lunch are straightforward as you will usually be eating on the yacht and the skipper and join in with you for those meals.

 

For dinner, typically you have two options. The first is that you take the skipper out to dinner with you and essentially treat them as an extended family member. Alternatively, you can give your skipper an allowance and they will go and sort themselves out and return with a receipt and any change. You can of course mix and match as you wish.

Sleeping Arrangements

Your skipper requires their own cabin. So, you will need to ensure you have sufficient cabins to accommodate your party as well as the skipper. For example, if you are a group of six, you will need three cabins for your party and one for the skipper meaning you need a minimum of a four cabin yacht. You will also need to ensure the skipper has access to a bathroom too, this can either be shared or allocated to just the skipper as per your preference.

 

Larger yachts sometimes come with a dedicated skipper’s cabin. In most circumstances the skipper can sleep in these, but some are too small so please discuss the cabin arrangements with us during booking and we can guide you accordingly.

Language and Nationality

Most of our skippers are nationals of the country you are visiting, but we do also have British and Australian skippers working for us too. Many have grown up sailing these areas and enjoy nothing more than showing you all the secret spots and sharing hidden tips only the locals know. It is important to remember that your skipper is not only there to sail the yacht but also to act as a tour guide for the holiday.

 

All our skippers speak English fluently and as many are locals you benefit from their ability to communicate in the native language.

The Route

None of our holidays follow fixed routes. We recommend you sit down with your skipper on arrival, open a cold beverage and discuss the holiday with them. Take this time to mention anywhere you have seen, read or heard about and the skipper will do their best to accommodate your wishes depending on the forecasted conditions and what is reasonably possible.

 

Our skippers know these areas like the back of their hands and are more than happy to build a route they think will fit your preferences. If you are looking for lively towns or quieter anchorages our skippers will do their best to make this an unforgettable experience.

Can you be Taught

Many people want to come away with some practical knowledge of sailing after their holiday. Our skippers are only too happy to teach you as much as you would like to know throughout the holiday. They are not able to issue any formal qualifications after your holiday, but you could use the time to brush up on any skills you want to perfect before going on to do your own sailing qualification.

Involvement

How much you get involved is completely up to you. If you want to sit back, relax and only throw the odd line that is absolutely fine. If you want to do most of the sailing and just have the skipper to lean on for any advice during the holiday or to take over if things get a little tricky then that is okay too. Ultimately this is your holiday and you can do as much or as little as you wish.
