We specialise in all inclusive sailing holidays for individuals and couples. Your welcoming hosts Lin and Richard are both Professional sailors and whether a beginner or experienced sailor you are welcome aboard Velvet Lady, our well equipped and MCA coded luxury Oyster 55 yacht.

Our idea of cruising is to combine a great days sailing with enough time to relax and explore the places we visit. Join us on our adventures to interesting destinations not on the usual yachting calendar and therefore less touristy. We do not just sail from marina to marina (often there are none) but also anchor in secluded bays and tie up in working fishing ports.

Our holiday prices are all inclusive of all meals on board and yacht operating costs, the only extras are flights, transfers and travel insurance.  We pride ourselves on our safety standards and ability to provide a holiday of a lifetime.  We regularly have guests returning year after year.

These are some recent comments from our guest book.

A lovely introduction into sailing in the extremely capable hands of Lin and Richard.  I felt really safe.  Some very funny stories told by Lin about her round the world trip – what a laugh!! A faultless week and some good food.  The mushroom dish was yummy thank you Richard
Best wishes to you both, Sue

If you want real fun join Lin and Rich for adventure sailing.  Big fun, great experience, nice holiday’s unbeatable hospitality just to name a few.  Thank you very much
Lutz and wolf now ready for the last tack home to Germany!

What can I say to follow Sue and Wolf?  The best week of my life!
Amazing sailing – every day a new experience.  My confidence and learning has increased.  Fantastic food and Lin and Richard were perfect hosts and coaches – very patient!!  Looking forward to joining them later for a milebuilder! Pauline
