If you happen to be a sailor, you already know the amazement and adventures of a sailing holiday. If you are just starting out, it’s safe to say that you are poised to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience by sailing through some of the most attractive sailing destinations in the world. Whether experienced or not, though, you can always opt to rent a sailboat with skipper and leave all the navigation responsibilities on them to make the most of your excursions in the seas and islands.
Among the great variety of boats that people traditionally use for recreational sailing experiences, sailboats are relatively less lavish. Therefore, they also tend to be way less expensive than others. The best part of planning for such a holiday is that you won’t have to worry about buying a sailboat anymore. You can easily take advantage of sailboat rental services like Sailogy and rent a sailboat with or without skipper.
There are a great number of sailing destinations in the world, some of which are better than the others due to their geographical locations, sailing friendly structures and the availability of different boats. In Europe, the most popular destination is, of course, the Mediterranean and its surrounding areas. Inevitably, it makes many destinations in countries like Italy, Spain, Greece, Croatia, etc. the most attractive for the experienced and beginning sailors. The rules and regulations for sailing vary according to the destinations, some of which also require a valid sailor’s licence.
However, thanks to our option to rent a sailboat with skipper, you can largely avoid the functional and the technical aspects of sailing in any given destination. A skipper is usually the captain of a sailboat, a person with the know-how and experience in sailing and navigating in the marine world. It is by far the most convenient sailing experience, with the seasoned pro taking care of all the navigational responsibilities on the boat so that you can just relax and concentrate on sightseeing. Consequently, it’s also the best option for even the experienced sailors, especially if they are travelling with friends and family and want to spend some quality time onboard. Even if you are an experienced sailor but is in a rush to see many places in a short time, it’s best to take skipper on-board with you.
At Sailogy, all of our skippers are seasoned professionals with appropriate training and licenses. They are also usually sourced locally so that they can double up as an experienced guide on your relaxing sailboat journey. They are well aware of the most gorgeous routes in any given locations, the quickest and easiest ways to reach to the most attractive destinations, as well as the best places to anchor in the open sea. They can also guide you towards the best position to enjoy rays of sunrise or sunsets if you ask.
These professional skippers are patient and welcoming too, offering their insights about a specific coastline, island or marina. They are also open to offer their guidance in the technical aspects of sailing, enabling you to learn and hone your navigation skills under their direct guidance. Their presence on board also allows for expert docking in a marina of your choosing, while you get down to the shore and explore inland.
