A UK Sailing Staycation Adventure
Original post: Another World Adventures
Thinking of taking a trip this summer that is closer to home, but still gives you that much needed adventure buzz? Book a sailing trip to explore nearby shores on a luxurious yacht. Staying near to home has never been so attractive – and even the most familiar locations are magic when experienced from the sea.
By joining a luxury Oyster 62 yacht this summer, you can embrace the freedom and exhilaration of UK seas on board, and explore historic villages and stunning coastal walks on shore.
You can explore the popular south west coast and Scilly Islands from the peaceful deck of your floating base, choosing when you go ashore to explore local historic coastal towns and take scenic walks. Fancy a longer adventure? Take in the south west coast and then take to the waves to sail to Oban in Scotland, via the Caledonian Canal. This second voyage option includes day sailing and exciting overnight passages too. Or maybe the exciting sailing off the coast of Scotland and remote Scottish islands are calling your name – choose to sailing from Oban to Oban visiting local island anchorages!
Learn the ropes on board
The experienced operators on board, Dan and Em, turned their adventure lifestyle dream into an opportunity for others to experience the joy of adventure sailing. They are relaxed, fun and friendly, making everyone feel comfortable and at ease on board. Their experience includes leading individuals and groups to remote destinations such as Antarctica and the South Pacific atolls. To join them on these local UK adventures this summer, sailing experience is not required. However, a willingness to pitch in and work as part of a team is a must!
Travel as a group or as a solo traveler
These sailing trips are ideal as private charters for family or friend groups – book the whole boat to share this unique adventure with your nearest and dearest. If you want to travel as a solo traveler, the voyages are suitable for you too. The layout of the boat means that she is suitable for groups and individuals, and tackling the open water is a team effort that bonds people together, quickly. You might arrive as a solo traveler, but you will leave as part of a team.
The boat is an elegant, fast, responsive and comfortable luxury yacht – an Oyster 62. From the comfortable well-appointed cabins for rest periods and a deck that is designed for socialising and group sailing, there is always somewhere on board for you to feel comfortable. On deck is a large, safe and family friendly cockpit, a lounging deck and transom seats. The boat is impeccably maintained, while safety and making guests feel secure is paramount.
Trips are available for booking as a solo traveler or as a private charter for your family or friendship group. Find out more here.
