Sail Away Dinghy Cruising

We think there’s not much better than sailing small boats for long distances, especially when you start visiting places. The feeling of achievement is one hook, but the sensation of sailing with a purpose (and not just to a windward and leeward mark) is what makes it so addictive.

Discover the world of small boat cruising

Discover the adventurous world of dinghy cruising as we offer you the opportunity to take part in our longer-distance Sail Away cruises as we sail in company to a nearby island or ‘secret-beach’ stopover with instructors and support boats to guide the flotilla along.

How it all works

We run our dinghy cruising from mid-morning and we generally time then so they don’t clash with any RYA courses you are also taking. It all starts with a shore-based briefing from our dinghy instructors. You will learn about cruise planning, basic pilotage, safety elements (very important!), basic navigation and long distance sailing skills to give you a taste for this truly inspirational past-time.

Available in all our centres: Half to 3/4 day.

Where is best?

We offer Sail Away excursions in all our Beach Clubs, but our specialist Sail Away centres are Mytikis and Porto Heli, where we run more of them throughout your week and offer an enhanced range of facilities and better focus for dinghy cruising.
