Cabin charter sailing holidays

A cabin charter provides a sailing cruise with someone else to handle the sailing; excellent if you want to try sailing or don’t have sailing qualifications.

The itinerary is designed with easy shorter sailing distances to provide you plenty of time to relax and enjoy the sun.

A cabin charter is an excellent option for singles or couples who would like to enjoy a sailing holiday, but maybe don’t have the sailing qualifications, time to learn to sail or simply don’t want to spend as much as the cost of chartering a yacht to themselves. Cabin chater is also an ideal option for anyone just wishing to try-out a sailing holiday to see whether they enjoy sailing.

With a cabin chater you usually book anything from a single cabin (two berths) to the entire yacht, and the good news is that if you can get a group of friends together, you all benefit from an increasingly lower price each for your sailing holiday the larger group you can assemble.

If you don’t have a group of friends who all want to come sailing, then a cabin charter is a great way to meet and make new freinds, all of whom are of course also interested in sailing. After a week together you might find youself making some life-long friends.

You sail under the guidance of a skipper who is responsible for the yacht and your safety. Cabin charter is excellent if you want to enjoy the sun, not worry about managing the yacht, but are interested in ‘helping out’ with the sailing.

How Cabin Charter sailing holidays work

Cabin charter sailing holidays have all the advantages of a skippered yacht charter; safety & yacht management and the benefits of the skipper’s sailing experience, familiarity with the yacht and extensive local knowledge, however, you only book a cabin, not charter the entire yacht...well, not unless you have a group of friends and choose to fill a yacht!

The itinerary - where you sail to - is flexible and naturally the crew can discuss their preferences, although ultimately the skipper must have the final word based on time, weather and the crew’s experience. Remember too; your route may alter during the week based on the weather or other conditions, although the skipper will always be happy to discuss and explain any changes with you.

A kitty system is usually the best option to cover the cost of food and drink eaten aboard and all crew are expected to participate in preparing food, although this is usually limited to snacks and light lunches. All crew members are also required to assist in keeping the yacht clean and tidy.

Evening meals are usually eaten ashore although you may cook aboard if you wish. Where you eat is your choice, although it’s worth listening to the skipper’s advice which is always based upon quality, location and value and not on kick backs!
