Family Sailing Holidays

Family sailing holidays are a perfect holiday for young children, teenagers and parents alike. Each family member can choose whether they want to play an active part in sailing or equally do nothing at all and relax on the bow of the boat while reading a good book. Once in port or at anchor the more active family members can explore the new surroundings on land or by snorkelling around the boat while the rest of the family can either relax on the boat or at a local taverna reading another book!

We can offer a wide range of tailor made family sailing holiday packages including Family Friendly Flotillas and Learn to Sail Holidays for new and inexperienced families. If you’re confident sailors then why not join a Family Flotilla Holidays? We have flotillas that are specifically orientated towards families with an Activity Coordinator on the lead boat who will provide entertainment and activities for the children while the parents can relax.

If you would prefer to stay ashore then we have a wide range of dinghy and beach resort family sailing holiday packages available, ranging from cheap self-catered apartments to luxurious hotels with picturesque sea views and spa treatment facilities on site.

Family Beach Club Holiday

Beach and dinghy holidays offer families the perfect balance of sailing and relaxing, particularly for anybody new to sailing or with nervous young children. The accommodation is nearly always based right on the beach and at nearly all resorts you will have  access to an array of water sports equipment ranging from kayaks and dinghies to catamarans, yachts, wind surf boards and even Kite Surfing kit. Tuition (most often free) is available, so you can complete internationally recognised RYA Qualifications while you’re on holiday.

If somebody in your group isn’t too keen on sailing or the water in general then worry not as many of the bases offer plenty of shore facilities including spas, gyms and mountain bikes for exploring the local area on. Alternatively they can relax on the beach and read a good book!

At most of our bases there are kids clubs for ranging ages where team co ordinators will keep the children entertained either on land or on the water while the parents can sneak off for a bit of quality private time, something you might rarely get. 

Family Learn to Sail Holidays

Family Learn to Sail Holidays

Learn to sail holidays are prefect for families. There are two options available. The first is learning to sail on yachts with the second learning to sail dinghies from a beach. Whichever way you go this offers you the chance to spend time with each other, yet the energetic children (and adults) can run around sailing while the more relaxed members of the family can sit back and relax.

With the yachting courses we can offer flexibility; instead of joining a course with a load of random people, you can do a learn to sail holiday together as a family with nobody else other than the skipper on board. We can offer family learn to sail courses not just in the UK, but also in some popular family holiday destinations such as Greece, Croatia, Turkey, Malta, Thailand and the British Virgin Islands.
