Family Friendly Sailing Holidays

Imagine having your own Classic Sailing vessel for your next family holiday. Your own floating home for the day, weekend or week as you journey from place to place. Home cooked local food prepared in the galley by the expert chef and al fresco dining in the sunshine as the sea laps at the side of the hull. Barefoot landings on deserted beaches, escaping the tourist hot spots in the height of summer and  Plenty of entertainment for the younger ones or teenagers as they learn how to sail and handle a traditional historic ship, just like they used to back in the day. Don’t just take our word for it!

Our best bits were: 1. Miriam climbing the mast on her 12th birthday, full of the cake that Freya had baked on board, fresh from blowing out the candles and hearing everyone sing; 2. taking part in exciting and fun sailing – from sweating and tailing sheets, to navigation and helming; 3. rowing ashore to explore a variety of otherwise hard-to-reach islands. – Family Holiday on Grayhound off the Coast of Brittany 2018 by B. Sellick

Your transport does not cost you anything, all that is required is your enthusiasm and an enjoyment of spending time in the great outdoors!
