Velvet Adventure Sailing offers sailing holidays in a comfortable friendly atmosphere. With a maximum of six guests at any one time we specialise in trips for small groups and individuals. You can book a berth or charter the whole boat. We offer the opportunity to visit some destinations not on the usual yachting calendar.
During January and February 2012 we will be based in the Canary Islands, offering relaxed and adventure cruises, in March and April we offer long distance passages between Lanzarote and Madeira; Madeira and the Azores; Azores and UK.
For Summer 2012 we will be visiting the beautiful coastline of southern Norway, Sweden and Denmark and cruising amongst the islands of the Danish Archipelago. En route to Norway we will sail across the north sea to Amsterdam and onwards to Oslo. When returning from Denmark we will use the Kiel Canal. All trips are available as holidays.
All our holidays are led by round the world yachtswoman Lin Parker. With 20 years experience she is well accomplished at both introducing the new comer and coaching the more experienced. Although we do not run RYA courses, Lin is an RYA Instructor and Examiner, and happy to include instruction as part of your holiday. With our experienced staff and small guest numbers we are able to tailor the exact itinerary around the interests of those onboard making each holiday unique. There are plenty of opportunities to add extra miles to your log books on our longer Blue Water Adventures and Ocean Passages, even get the sextant out!
Our adventures take place aboard our yacht VELVET LADY. She is a 55 foot sailing yacht built by Oyster of Ipswich. Oysters are world renowned for their comfort and security. Aboard VELVET LADY we take a maximum of six guests and have two crew members, this ensures that there will be plenty of space and that you will be well looked after.
We offer a range of 7 night, 10 night and 15 night holidays. All our trips are fully inclusive on board, however travel to and from the yacht is not included. Further details can be found on the Whats Included page on the Velvet website.
Our itineraries are all written to allow time to explore ashore in our destinations, many of these are small harbours and anchorages only accessible by boat where the scenery and wildlife are superb.
We operate year round, sailing in the beautiful northern regions during the summer where we benefit from 24 hour daylight, and following the sunshine south for the winter. Full details of all our trips, including itineraries, travel information, kit lists etc are available on our website. Booking is easy, just book on line from our site, each individual trip page tells you how many berths are currently vacant.
