Some frequently asked questions
Not at all - unless you are confident and experienced enough to skipper your own yacht, you will have a private skipper onboard who will be in charge of getting you around.
As skipper, you are required to have a Day Skipper or Certificate of Competence and a VHF Licence - you are advised to bring the originals with you in case you are asked to present them.
We organise the trip as a mini private flotilla. Between our self-skippers and our private skippers, we agree a route around the Adriatic, calling in in beautiful bays, picturesque villages and at the most authentic dining locales we can find.
Booking closes for HQR Sail at the end of February.
The available yachts have either 3 or 4 cabins. If you are skippering your own yacht, you can bring up to 2 people per cabin (though private cabins are generally much more comfortable - they are probably too cosy to share with a stranger).
You need to confirm traveller names at the time of booking. If you need to change these nearer the time, the cost to do so can be £200+.
The 47ft Yachts are in their 4/5th charter season. They are all clean and well maintained, however, and generally very comfortable. This year, the 44ft yachts are "Premier", which means they have only been chartered for 1-3 seasons.
Your booking includes flights, transfers and the yacht. Your yacht will be lightly pre-provisioned with tea/coffee and some breakfast items/snacks, and there is a mini-market at the marina as well.
We handle meals through the kitty system, with each yacht having its own kitty and paying for its skipper's food and drink as well.
