First Time Sailing with Friends Yachting | Yacht Sailing Holidays

First Time Sailing


We felt the thrill of first time sailing and we’re glad to be able to make you feel it. Our professionally trained skippers will take you and your friends to great islands in top sailing destinations and it’ll be the vacation of a lifetime. All our routes are carefully chosen and your skipper knows everything needed to safe sailing.

What? Where? When?

Join Friends Yachting with your buddies. Choose where to go for first time sailing.

Check-in is always done Saturdays. Usually is done in the afternoon. In the morning the boats need to be checked-out by previous crews. While waiting in the marina you can do the shopping for the week.
You will meet your skipper in the marina. During your week on the yacht, he will teach you to sail and show you the best spots on route. The skipper is part of the crew and will sleep in a bed in the yacht.

First time sailing?

Every journey starts with one step. A Sailing Holiday is accessible to most of us. In a couple of hours from boarding you’ll get acquainted to the boat. Living space is limited but very well organized and pretty comfortable.

The best accommodation!

Living on a sailboat is similar to camping but much better.

  • Sea-view 24/7
  • Swim in clear blue waters as much as you like and whenever you like
  • New destinations every day and places to explore
  • Food and drinks always available
  • On the deck it’s always sunny with a fresh breeze ensuring the best possible tan
  • Peace and quiet as you like and still you can choose the music you want  (each yacht has it’s own audio system)
  • Reach the most beautiful golfs and enjoy the best lunches at large

Friends Yachting typical day

One day might be like this:

  • 10:00 breakfast on yacht
  • 11:00 head towards the next island
  • 14:00 Lunch stop. Enjoy lunch in the middle of the sea or maybe in a golf; swim and relax
  • 15:00 – 16:00 keep sailing, sunbathe on deck and enjoy cold drinks.
  • 17:00 – 18:00 arrive at your destination, anchor and maybe go for shopping, rent scooters…
  • 20:00 – 22:00 dinner on deck or maybe in town

Quick tips

  • Electricity is available while docked and there is 230V; while sailing you can still charge your phone and have cold drinks (only 12V)
  • Our yachts are equipped with audio system, fridge, kitchen and toilets so life on yacht doesn’t miss anything
  • Keep in mind that space is very well organized but still limited. Pack as you would go to the seaside; soft bags are great to store under deck
