Join SailTime members and instructors from around the world in exotic destinations worldwide!
Regularly throughout each year you have the ability to join SailTime instructors and fellow SailTime members on week long flotilla vacations in places like the Whitsundays, British Virgin Islands and The Mediterranean.Imagine cruising along in the sun, at the helm on your own yacht, stopping for lunch and dropping anchor for a swim or snorkel in the warm, crystal clear waters of a beautiful bay in some far flung locale halfway around the world. You no longer have to only dream of a stroll on the deserted beach of a tiny uninhabited island. You can also discover exciting villages, towns, tasting the local cuisine and getting to know the locals. You can make these things a reality with SailTime!
SailTime Flotillas provide a wonderful balance between your need to be independent and your need to have a question answered while sailing. Our specially chosen itineraries ensure you visit some of the best anchorages in the sailing area, while still allowing you to take as much time for free sailing as you like. We have been to these places before and share the local knowledge and insure that the snags are removed from your experience.
However you look at it…this is your experience, we’ll make sure you sail safely and enjoy your trip as much as possible!
Why a flotilla?
A flotilla is a great option for families, couples, singles and groups of friends that look for exciting ways to enjoy vacations and adventures, a SailTime flotilla is an informal, relaxed and a once in a lifetime experience, but as a SailTime Member it does not have to be “once in a lifetime” any more!
Making way from one beautiful place or beach to another with several other yachts nearby, you will lead your crew as part of an informal group of like minded sailors. Your lead boat will sail with you and provide the support and guidance that includes tips and training as well as suggested anchorages and restaurants to visit during the day or to moor for the night, ensuring you see the best of the local sailing area.
There’s also the option to sail solo and then meet up with the whole flotilla at agreed destinations for dinner, beach bbq’s and to take part in races or regattas and other social gatherings. Many flotilla enthusiasts say that this is what makes a flotilla trip wonderful – meeting like-minded people with similar interests and sharing the excitement of discovering new sailing areas together.
Some people return year after year to the same sailing area, keeping in touch with flotilla friends and often booking together for future vacations. Others prefer to try a new area each year, and with so many routes to choose from there is always something new to discover…
