Sailing / Yacht Club
Our philosophy is simple - we offer the opportunity to meander around the beautiful Greek Islands in the comfort of your own yacht, living the dream, with the unobtrusive assistance and supervisions of a flotilla lead crew. The holidays concentrate on the enjoyable aspects of sailing in the sunny Greek Islands, allowing those with little experience to have a go. Experienced sailors also have the opportunity to simply relax, whilst introducing family and friends to their passion. Take your time meandering from port to port, stopping for lunch and swims in beautiful bays along the way, before making the most of the afternoon breeze and sailing to your evening destination.
Sailing Holidays Ltd began life in 1976 as Flotilla Sailing Club. Barrie Neilson joined the company in 1979 as a flotilla engineer and subsequently worked as flotilla skipper for six years in Greece, Florida and the former Yugoslavia. Twenty four years later, Sailing Holidays Ltd now has 178 beautiful yachts in Greece, all of which are run on flotilla sailing holidays around the Greek islands. Sailing Holidays Ltd remains the only non-corporate flotilla specialist in the United Kingdom. Our niche is operating the best maintained boats in the industry on one and two week flotillas around some of the most beautiful islands in the world. The Greek Islands are only a three hour flight from the UK. Our holidays are highly addictive and our average flotilla sailor has enjoyed between four and five holidays in the different areas of Greece. The Ionian Islands are perfect for beginners and less experienced sailors. The Saronic Islands and the Sporades Islands offer windier conditions for our more experienced sailors, who have tried most of our Ionian Islands routes, and who are now looking for a new and exciting destination. We also have an RYA training section for those wishing to gain formal sailing qualifications.
