Where's best for families?

Your choice of destination may depend on various factors:

Do you want to sail on flotilla? You may want the security of sailing with other yachts and with flotilla staff who are onhand to give assistance. You may want to meet other families with children. We have flotillas in Greece, Turkey or Croatia, so there's one to match your sailing experience. 

Are are looking for somewhere sheltered? The children may be younger or the family may not be so experienced. The Ionian in Greece is a family favourite for its gentler winds, shorter distances and picturesque bays for swimming.

Perhaps the children are older and you want to visit somewhere interesting? Greece, Turkey, Croatia and Italy all have ancient histories to explore. Sailing on the French Riviera gives an opportunity to practice speaking French.

The Caribbean is an idyllic holiday destination for all the family. The sailing is best October through to June. The British Virgin Islands provide safe, sheltered cruising with white sandy beaches and superb snorkelling. 


"We had a fantastic time with Peter at Rock Sailing in Gibraltar. Many thanks for organising the course for us. Peter was an excellent teacher and looked after us with great food on board too! While storms raged in the Straights for our first two days, we learnt a great deal about all aspects of yacht safety in the relatively calm Marina. By Wednesday our crew of 4 were eager to set sail and that afternoon we were on our way to Ceuta in a force 6-7, making good headway at an average 11knots. What a privilege! The next three days were filled with great sailing, dolphins, and good company. We will certainly recommend you and Rock Sailing in the future and we are very much looking forward to our flotilla holiday with you in May."
