Sailing Holidays

Traditional and classic sailing at its very best…

Get away from it all in 2018 and join us for a traditional hands on sailing holiday on board one our three historic sailing vessels — Leader, Provident, and Golden Vanity.

We promise the best scenery, fantastic food, great company, unforgettable destinations, exploration ashore, and a truly memorable adventure.

Up on deck our vessels look as they did all those years ago, while below deck you will find modern comforts to ensure you can relax during your time on board. If you have never been sailing before — or if  you own your own yacht — we promise a fantastic holiday, regardless of your ability.

Whether you join us for a week, an extended cruise, or a short break, our expert and friendly crew will be look after you, literally show you the ropes, and ensure you get the most out of your holiday.

If you want to be involved in all the aspects of running the vessel that is great, though if you would prefer to find somewhere quite to sit and enjoy a good book, that is also fine. Either way, arrive at a different harbour, or pretty anchorage each evening, turning heads as you sail on by.

We welcome solo travellers, couples, or groups of friends and family, of all ages. All three vessels are also available for whole boat charter, perfect for a special occasion or a great adventure holiday.

Have fun the tradtional way, with no winches aboard, we use long established methods of block and tackle, where technique is much more important than strength.  There are many opportunities to learn the ropes, hoist sails, steer and enjoy life on board, a great way to meet new people and have a real sense of teamwork.

We cruise some of the UK and Europe’s most beautiful coasts:
