Have you ever gazed out over a sundrenched foreign cove and wondered how amazing it must be to spend some time bobbing at anchor with a G&T watching the sunset, kissed by a soothing breeze and leaping into an azure sea when it gets a little too hot?

Believe me when I say that you can turn your daydreams into a fabulous reality and have a real adventure; exploring unspoiled coastline, mixing with the local people, swimming and snorkelling in the bluest sea, watching dolphins playing in the bow wave, not to mention sailing quietly in at dawn to a sleepy foreign harbour………….

I want to share with you some of the magical, once in a lifetime experiences that sailing can bring.  IBIS has ensuite cabins, luxury linens and hot showers; I’m taking her to some of the most beautiful spots I’ve visited and I’m offering you an open invitation to bring a friend or two to have a laugh with.

All I ask is that you leave any preconceptions you might have of a sailing holiday at home with the grey skies and join me for what I truly hope will be one of the most memorable times of your life!
