Christmas 2020 – much like all of 2020 – is going to be very different for most of us this year. With this in mind, we would like to remind you why our gift vouchers will make a perfect Christmas gift for the end of an imperfect year. 

Something to look forward to in the new year

We could all do with something to look forward to in 2021 after such a difficult year. With a sailing gift voucher, not only do you get the excitement of opening your Christmas gift on the day, but the added bonus of choosing a future date to join us on the water in the Spring/Summer of 2021. Dates will be added to our sailing schedule in January, but if you can’t see one that is suitable, just get in touch and we will do our best to help you.


Gift vouchers are available for a range of experiences including Day Sails, Weekend Sails and Exclusive Charters. They are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase (so you will need to get in touch to book your date within the timeframe before they become out of date). Our sailing schedule offers a huge choice of dates between April and October, and the schedule is continuously updated throughout the year. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to ensure you receive up-to-date notifications. If you can’t see a suitable date on our website, get in touch and we will do our very best to help you.

Relax and be active at the same time

Research has shown that both nature and exercise are good for our physical and mental health. (You can read NHSBBC, RYA and Mind reports by following the links). Onboard a yacht, you may feel yourself relaxing as you breathe deeper with fresh air filling your lungs. Later that evening, you may feel tired from the sea air or a slight ache in your body where your core muscles have been working out without you even realising. (Personally, I find the lack of phone signal and internet access whilst out on the water the biggest benefit! KR)

Try something new or rediscover the love of a forgotten hobby

Whether the recipient of your gift voucher is new to sailing or they are experienced but haven’t sailed for a long time, we have something to suit everyone. Our highly experienced, commercially endorsed skippers will ensure everyone has as many (or as few!) hands-on opportunities as they choose.

Spend time, not money

“Time spent is priceless”. It’s not my quote, but I read it somewhere. Sharing a day or weekend out with a loved one aboard one of our yachts will create some wonderful memories. 

Now, we are not suggesting that you should do the same as the couple in this blog post, but you can read about the wonderful memories made with a marriage proposal aboard our yacht.

A high-quality and reputable company

Covid-19 Secure

After the March – July 2020 lockdown, we were able to safely start up our day sails and exclusive charters immediately. We’d had plenty of time to put Covid-19 policies and risk assessments into place. The good thing we found was that because of our high-standards of care and cleanliness aboard our yachts, and the fact that we limit our numbers for the comfort of our guests, we didn’t actually need to implement many changes to our procedures. We will continue to send out copies of our Covid-19 risk assessments to our guests and provide copies to potential future guests upon request. Our Coivid-19 updates are transparent on our website.
