Sailing Holidays

The idea of hopping between tiny islands or sleepy coastal villages on a sailing boat can seem both magical and intimidating: how to cope with all those knots and inscrutable nautical terms? Find a skippered sailing boat, however, or a beginners’ course that lets you explore widely, and you might discover a new favourite means of travel. If billowing sails are a priority for you, check first how much they are likely to be used on the trip – engines are an unavoidably practical default when the wind isn’t cooperating.



The islands that fringe Croatia’s coast offer Europe’s best introduction to sailing – you’ll rarely feel wave-tossed on the short stretches between old fishing ports and sheltered coves. There are anchorages for all tastes: join the party crowd on Hvar, or find solitude among the starkly beautiful Kornati Islands (pictured).
