Note: Below is an overview of planned sailing itinerary although at times, weather and other conditions may affect or alter the route. Don't worry your skipper will keep you aware of any changes along the way.

All boats are modern sailing yachts and catamarans, catering for every group size and budget. They accommodate 8-12 people and sail in flotillas of five to seven yachts, meaning there’s plenty of space for everyone, above and below deck. Flotilla of five to seven yachts makes for the perfect sized group to get to know your fellow sailors. So, whether you want to explore in a small group, mingle with everyone at MedSailors punch party, or take it easy with a laidback dinner for two, these group sizes mean you have the opportunity to do it all.

Below deck, yachts consist of four to five double cabins, with bunk cabins available for solo travellers and sharing groups, and two to three shared bathrooms. You'll also find a large kitchen with a fridge to keep your drinks cold, a communal lounge and stereo system to get the tunes going on the top deck.

Your skipper is your amazing guide around the islands and go-to for all things sailing. They'll help you discover hidden bays, prepare your delicious meals and teach you how to sail so that you can win the MedSailors Regatta. Each flotilla will also have a Guest Experience Leader who will help to organise your activities and recommend things to do on each island.
