Flotillas are the sociable way to sail. You have the freedom of skippering your own yacht during the day but with the support of crew with an experienced skipper, providing weather forecasts, guiding you on the best itinerary, helping you to moor up in the evenings and sorting out any queries you may have.
People choose flotillas for a variety of reasons. It’s popular with those who appreciate the support of the lead crew but also with those who have sailed many times before who enjoy the sociable side of a flotilla and the local knowledge and reassurance that the lead crew provide – useful if you’re new to the cruising area. During the school holidays flotillas are particularly popular with families who enjoy an active holiday together.
What experience do I need ?
To sail a yacht on flotilla you should have skippered a cruising yacht previously, either on flotilla or anywhere in the world.
