Where is 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, Croatia and France, so there's one to match your sailing experience.

Are you 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.

"Have used Nautilus now for many years and have always been well pleased with the performance. This year we had the privilege of a brand new yacht! The base managers were spot on with briefing and advice and the technician on the dock was excellent with the practical yacht systems brief. Very efficient and no time wasted."
