Advice on plotting your itinerary

If your sailing dream involves white-sand beaches on tropical islands, colourful harbours and isolated coral reefs, this event will help you achieve it. You could visit the real-life Treasure Island in the British Virgin Islands, dive wrecks in the Bahamas and snorkel through the clear blue waters of St Martin. Or explore the Mayan ruins and rainforests of Belize, find a spectacular beach for every day of the year in Antigua, harness the warm trade winds of Grenada or discover the mountainous beauty of St Lucia.

Thinking of the Mediterranean? The region is the ideal way to enjoy ancient history, beautiful scenery and great food and wine, whether you’re dotting around the islands along Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, island hopping in Greece’s Ionian Sea or enjoying Italy’s stunning Amalfi Coast. 

Help with the logistics

Whether you want to charter a yacht and plot your own course, have a sailing professional take the helm while you relax, or join a family-friendly sociable flotilla, we’ll have plenty of ideas and advice to help you organise the ultimate sailing trip. We’ll discuss setting itineraries for everyone: whether you're a beginner or an advanced sailor, and whether you want to sail the South Pacific or the Mediterranean. Expert insider knowledge will cover improving your skills on the water, choosing a boat for your trip, packing advice, and how to choose the best trip for you — whether you're seeking family time, wild adventure, a romantic break or winter sun.
