Sailing Holiday Tasters & Short Breaks

Classic Sailing have more short breaks than any other sailing company in Britain. We also have 1-3 day voyages in other countries too. We recognise you might not have the time or money to do a week long sailing course and not everyone wants to commit to a longer voyage if they are not sure if they are going to like living on a boat. This is why we create day sails and short tasters for you to come try a pilot cutter, lugger, schooner or mighty tall ship.

Our Cornwall Sailing Weekends were voted one of the 10 Best Weekend Courses in Britain by Lonely Planet Magazine and one of the best 52 weekends away worldwide.  Classic Sailing short voyages with themes like seafood, artist on board or wildlife spotting often feature in magazines from Coast Magazine to the Sunday Times.

You really don’t need any experience. The voyage fee includes your accommodation, all day long activities and freshly cooked meals on board. All you have to do it turn up at the joining port and let the skipper be your tutor, cook, tourist and wildlife guide.
