Carefree Sailing Holidays

Sailing holidays in the Mediterranean. Sailing in Corsica, Italy and the Italian Islands including Sardinia, Elba, Sicily, Ischia and Capri, the Aeolian Islands (Isole Eolie), Ustica, Ponza and the Pontine Islands, the Egadi Islands, the Bonifacio Strait and the Maddelena Archipelago. Also available in Greece and Croatia. The sailing yacht is an Oyster Lightwave 48 cutter, commissioned from Queen's Award winning Oyster Marine UK. A privately owned family sailboat experience at a very affordable price.

Although many of my regular guests own their own yachts in other parts of the world, previous experience is not necessary and complete beginners are welcome. The emphasis is on "Carefree"; No security deposit is required, the yacht comes fully equipped, victualled and fueled, and includes myself as Captain, Skipper and cook (when my wife if is not aboard). For each day you book you get the full 24 hours (and sometimes more). You are welcome to do as much or as little around the operation of the yacht as you like.
