Sailing holidays (53)

Family sailing holidays aren’t just an opportunity for budding skippers to wear silly hats and control the tiller all holiday long – the plus points are rather more numerous than that. Just think about it: you can set sail whenever you like, sailing from one beautiful location to another at the turn of a wheel. Best of all, you don’t have to put up with heaving beaches. Just find your own deserted stretch of sand or an isolated cove, moor up and enjoy the sunshine and quiet. Sailing doesn’t have to be an activity holiday, you know.

The more competent sailors among you might like to take the wheel yourself on one of our yachts in Spain or Greece. Or, for a little added luxury, you can hire your own private skipper.

For families in which there’s an even split between sea legs and landlubbers, there’s the sailing holiday compromise of renting a holiday home that has the use of its own boat and private mooring. Check out these sailing adventures in the Caribbean and along the coast of England.

But if sailing sounds just a little too involving for what’s supposed to be a relaxing holiday, there is the more tranquil option of a houseboat. Either stay put or pootle merrily around the waterways of England and the Netherlands. Whichever appeals more, you should definitely step aboard soon.

"Looked forward to a weeek end afloat rather than adrift"

This trip was the forth trip the group had with `Kates Boats` (the second on Samuel James)and sadly will be our last. We arrived on Friday (4th april) The group had 2 new guests for a long w end . W… More

I’m sorry that the trip didn’t work out for you this time. It is a shame that you told the send out staff that you were going to Warwick (a normal weekend trip) rather than aiming for the Tom of the Woods which is a good 4 days travel there and back. Unfortunately breakdowns do happen, even with the best maintained boats. Samuel James is an older boat, with a three star rating, which is reflected in the price. The rust problem with the water does occur if the water tank is not filled daily as we ask in our briefing, however with your planned schedule I doubt if there was any time available to keep the water tank filled. Throughout the two visits by the mechanic and the several emails since this is the first mention that you have made of a smelly toilet. I am unsure who you spoke to on Sunday who offered compensation, because the marina is actually closed and not staffed. Again my apologies that the holiday failed to live up to your expectations.
