Stay Sail Holidays

Discover the perfect ‘twin-centre’ holiday where you can get the family hooked on sailing at our beautiful Beach Clubs before you take to the seas aboard your yacht in week two.

Spend a week at our beachfront hotels in Vassiliki and Porto Heli, enjoying an array of activities and water sports. Then take to your yacht for week two and cruise around the beautiful Ionians (Vassiliki) or the ‘Greek Riviera’ in the Saronic islands, (Porto heli). You can also book a skippered charter if you’re new to sailing or you just want to relax and have someone do it all for you.

Your week in our Beach Club

Our Beach Clubs are waterfront hotels in some of the most beautiful places in Greece. We’ve handpicked them for their suitability to watersports and shore based activities and then stacked them to the nines with some great kit – be it the latest windsurf boards, sailing dinghies, paddle equipment or mountain bikes

Then, we’ve brought together a team of fun and energetic individuals, (our staff!), to make it all happen. They’ll teach you new skills on a sailing dinghy or look after your kids in our Active Clubs; and they’ll organise excursions and Beach Fitness classes to keep you on your toes...

Your Week on Flotilla (or Bareboat)

Our flotillas are run exclusively for ocean-loving Brits like you. We have a brilliant team of staff and we like to keep things small and personal and our ten-yacht flotilla allows us to do just that. We’ll spice up your week up with stopovers on the best islands, group meals ashore and activities for everyone, not just the adults.

If you’re new to yacht skippering (or a little rusty with your Med’ mooring) then our yacht team will be ready-and-waiting to help you every step of the way. They’re a very handy and experienced team - and always just a VHF call away.

Our Flotillas

Choose Your Yacht

Choose from our elite fleet of yachts, from 35 to 51 feet. Your yacht will be your home for a week (or two) and it’s equipped with everything you need to enjoy your cruise.

You’ll have a fully kitted galley, (that’s a kitchen to you and me) with a cooker, a fridge and everything else including the kitchen sink. There’s a shower in the heads (that’s a bathroom) and double sleeping cabins with sofa seating in the saloon and a saloon berth for extra bods. There’s even a table in the cockpit for alfresco dining and enjoying those lovely long Mediterranean sunsets. Our yachts sleep 6-8 people, but for your comfort we recommend you don’t fill them to the max.

Getting Qualified on a Stay Sail

Many of our guests will combine their yacht tuition with a Stay Sail holiday. It’s an ideal time for novice sailors or more experienced sailors to get qualified if they need a certificate to charter their yacht in week two. Even as a novice, we can take you from beginner to yacht skipper in just two weeks.

So join our tuition yacht in Vassiliki and get qualified while the family enjoy the facilities back at our club. Or you can all get trained together; we run a complete range of courses from Youth Sailing to Competent Crew and Day Skipper courses from ages 12+.


A Holiday For Everyone

A Stay Sail is a perfect family holiday where everyone’s interests are covered. Your kids will love our Active Clubs for 4-17 year olds, leaving you free to develop your skills at windsurfing or dinghy sailing with our crack team of RYA instructors. Why not try a Beach Fitness class, guided bike rides, or just hit the sunlounger...hard!  You can also get your skippers qualification in week one, enabling you to charter your yacht for week two, even if you have only a little prior experience.


What's Included?

Our Stay Sail holidays include everything you need for that perfect twin centre break: your Beach Club hotel and all activities, including fitness classes, watersports and tuition from our crack-team of RYA instructors. You can make use of our free Active Clubs (for ages 4-17) and our sailing dinghies, paddle boards, kayaks, bikes and windsurf kit are free to use all week. 

For week two, we’ll transfer you to the marina and our brilliant yacht team will welcome you to your yacht. If you’re new to yacht skippering, (or a little rusty), then rest assured our team will help you every step of the way.

What's Included

Book a skipper

Take the pressure off with a skippered sailing holiday and enjoy a stunning Greek islands cruise for week two of your Stay Sail with an expert skipper to do as much (or as little) of the sailing as you wish. 

Skippers are a great way for beginners (and more experienced sailors) to pick up some tips and get some sailing experience with an expert onboard. They can be organised for every yacht in our fleet (if you book in advance). Why not cruise in style aboard our new Oceanis 51.1; it’s the perfect skippered yacht for groups of 4 to 10 people.

How to Book

If you're looking to book a Stay Sail holiday, you'll need to give us a call. Our expert sales team have extensive knowledge of our yacht holidays and are ready to help.

You’ll only find guide prices online so give us a call on 0844 770 40 70 and our team will talk you through the options and give you our very best prices.
