Isles of Scilly

Happy New Year from Devon Sailing Experiences and welcome to our January 2017 newsletter!

Group Sailing Opportunities for 2017

We continue to receive more and more requests to join our Group Sailing database. The idea behind this database is to provide sailing opportunities to individuals or groups of friends who would like to try a longer sail (5-7 days), but are not able to get a crew together. We can help you by providing an experienced skipper and contacting other people who may be interested in joining you. This sailing opportunity is suitable for all levels of experience and is a great way to keep the costs down while experiencing the enjoyment of staying onboard a luxury 40’ yacht. For more information, click here.

Join us on a sail to the Isles of Scilly

Fancy joining us on a group skippered charter to the Isles of Scilly? Following a successful trip last year (see photo at the top of this newsletter) we are considering running one in June 2017. If you think it could be for you, please email to register your interest. There is no obligation to book.

We are now on TripAdvisor

Had a particularly enjoyable day sail? Want to tell everyone about the amazing location you visited during your weekend sail? Then please share your experience with others on TripAdvisor. Not only do we appreciate your feedback to help us improve, it provides insightful information for our potential future guests who want to select the right experience for them. Our sincere thanks go out to those who have reviewed us already.

Did you know that we regularly add blog posts to our website?

Our latest posts include why we think sailing should be included in your list of New Year resolutions, recommendations about local sailing destinations, and commentary about current events (sailing related, of course!). To be notified of a new blog post, follow us on Facebook or @DevonSailingExp on Twitter. Following us on social media is an ideal way to find out about our latest sailing schedule updates, offers, opportunities and last minute availability.

Changes to our bareboat charter arrangements for 2017

From 2017, bareboat charters will continue to be provided with basic bedding (pillows, pillowcases, sheets, hand towel in the heads and tea towels) as well as cleaning equipment. We have found that this is suitable for most bareboat charters who often prefer to bring their own sleeping bags with them.

Extra bedding (duvets and duvet covers) and bath towels can be supplied at an extra cost of £50 per yacht. Please let us know in advance if you would like the additional bedding and towels, and we will ensure it is ready and all set up for your arrival.

Full bedding will continue to be provided for our weekend experiences and bespoke skippered charters.

Sailing Schedule

We have started adding dates for day and weekend sails to our 2017 Sailing Schedule. Don’t forget to take a look – especially if you received a Devon Sailing Experiences gift voucher for Christmas. From April, it will be constantly updates with new available dates. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to receive notifications of updates. If you can’t see a suitable date, do get in touch and we will do our best to accommodate your requirements.

Keep in Touch

We are looking forward to receiving more of your photos during the 2017 season. Please keep sending them because we genuinely love it when you do (especially when you don’t mind us using them on our blog posts including Facebook and Twitter). We never mention names or dates in our posts, but they are great for us to use alongside our narrative.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Nick and Katie Rich
