Sailing Holidays in the UK: Whole Boat Charter287 views | March 13th, 2021
The Perfect Holiday for the Whole Crew
Whether you know the ropes or are new to sailing, a whole boat charter could be the perfect holiday for you and your family. Would you prefer to relax and let our experienced skipper take the helm or perhaps you are after a learning experience? Either way, First Class Sailing can help you plot your perfect flight-free holiday.
Relaxing Break or Hands-On Experience?
Explore the Solent and Dorset coast or venture further west to Cornwall safe in the knowledge that you have a highly trained skipper ready to take the pressure off , allowing you to enjoy the sailing. Our skippers are always ready to take the helm.
Perhaps you would like a more hands-on experience, maybe even take an RYA course? Our skipper will be responsive to your needs. You may want to be an active crew member or take the wheel, You can.. and with the peace of mind that comes with having expert guidance, assistance, and knowledge close to hand.
You plan your holiday and determine the route. Explore creeks and bays or visit harbours and seaside towns. Maybe you want to experience a bigger boat or build up some sea miles? Just let us know. We will have a discussion prior to your holiday so that when you cast off you and the skipper are working from the same chart.
It’s not just professional sailing know-how our Skippers bring, there really is nothing like local knowledge – not just tides and passages, but where to give a wide berth, where to go, and when. The best fishing spots or bird-watching spots, anchorages, the best bars and restaurants, or if you prefer the best-secluded beauty spots. Also with the current restrictions, your skipper will know all the current rules and what is now open again to the public.
Privacy & Hygiene
This leads us to the dreaded pandemic that has blighted our horizon for a while. A Yacht Charter presents a unique chance to really get away from it all. At First Class Sailing we have always taken your health and hygiene seriously so you can rest assured that everything will be ship-shape and Bristol fashion. Our skippers have plenty of experience with groups and how to put new crews at ease, respect their privacy, and are fully up to date in how to deal safely with smaller groups in the current climate.
From a Bavaria 47 to a 32ft Westerley we have a boat fit for all your adventures and dreams. Check out our fleet. This year we are also offering Golden Vanity – a 100-year-old Gaff Rigger for whole boat charter . Find out more here.
First Class Skippers
Our skippers are all commercially endorsed RYA/MCA Offshore Yachtmasters and qualified RYA instructors. The skipper can simply be there as a backup in case you get into a situation you feel uncomfortable with or can take on a more instructional and coaching role. If you would like more formal instruction, please let us know and we will make all the arrangements.
