The Best Vacation Spots to Take Your Yacht Nov 04

Taking a yacht into the open waters is one of the best ways to travel. Besides having a crew to take care of your every need, the greatest advantage is the freedom to explore places far from the focus of tourism on more exciting level.

Monaco is considered to be the unofficial capital of the international yachting community.  Nice and Canes are on the top of the list of the Hollywood jet set especially during the film festival. If you fancy something for the younger crowd you may start with Ibiza the clubbing capital of the world. If partying is not your thing, the island is full with beautiful historical places and eye catching scenery. Another great destination is Dubrovnik, a city on the cost of the Adriatic sea, offering a laid back atmosphere between the ancient walls.

Things to Consider When Chartering a Yacht Jul 04

Getting away on a yacht with your family or friends is a fun vacation idea. Although, just like land-based vacations, you have to consider many things in order to find the right yacht, and make your vacation a success. Here are some of them:

chartering a yacht

Budget
Budget is something that is too important to miss. Remember that there are a lot of agencies that offer charter services around the world. It’s easy to get confused with this variation, so the best thing to do is to look out yachts through their rates. This can narrow down your list, making your decision making easier than you imagined it to be. Word to the wise, though: don’t go for a big yacht if your group is under fifteen. The bigger the yacht, the more it will cost.

Kinds of yacht
As part of the planning process, you will have to decide on which kind of yacht that you will use for your trip. Learn about the different kinds of yacht available first. Then, pick the yacht that can accommodate the specific requirements of your group. “These (sailing) yachts are great for a family holiday, a fun adventure with friends as well as racing charters. It is also possible to charter a few sailing yachts to accommodate larger groups for flotillas or team building activities,” says SailingEurope.com.

Facilities
Obviously, the yacht that you will rent will serve as your home during your sea adventure. So, as much as possible, you want it to be as comfortable and safe as possible. Find out if the yacht has the amenities that you would expect to see such as full kitchen, entertainment center, and Jacuzzi, among others. Wi-Fi is another essential offering that you should not overlook.

Having Wi-Fi access while on board allows you to become updated about news from the mainland, including lottery results. New lottery winners Richard and Cathy Brown can attest to this claim. On the sixth day of their 10-week sailing trip around Britain, the retired couple found out through an app that their numbers came up, and that they have £6,123,395 winnings. Aside from apps, you can also visit lottery.net/ with a stable internet connection. This website features the latest lottery numbers from all of the major lottery draws worldwide, which means that regardless of your location, you can access the results back home even while in the middle of the sea.

Basic Tips for Yachting Novices Apr 17

yachting novices

Are you just taking to the seas of your own accord for the first time? In that case, there’s probably a lot you don’t know, even if you’ve taken a course or two. Even if you think you know everything, there is more than likely going to be something you’ve missed, and even the most prepared of sailors can easily overlook one or two small things.

Here is a small list of some handy sailing tips – they can be useful for rookies and veterans alike, so read up and head out onto open waters more prepared!

Choose Your Waters Wisely

If you’re just starting out and not yet familiar with some of the basics of sailing, possibly the most important thing to do is to make sure that you always choose to sail in calm waters, preferably with few other boaters around.

You want light winds and minimal traffic – this will make things easier and less stressful for you while you’re getting to grips with the ins and outs of sailing.

Bigger Ain’t Better

A small boat is much easier to handle, and uses fewer sails and lines, meaning you’ll be able to captain it with less difficulty. A smaller dinghy is easier to manoeuver – don’t get cocky and try to steer a massive boat.

The lush jungle location is a steep climb from Banjar Village, or it can be reached by motorbike taxi.
