Sailing Holidays

Sailing on the French Riviera

Start your yacht charter holiday from the marina at Bormes les Mimosas, close to the beautiful Iles d’Hyere, preserved as a marine park. This delightful Provencal village takes its name from the abundant mimosa plants that grow in the hillside surrounding the village. It's a great starting place to explore the Iles d’Hyeres. Sail east or west along this unspoilt part of the French coast where the sheltered coastline makes a great sailing holiday with beautiful beaches, plenty of anchorages and the chic resorts of St Tropez and Port Grimaud. Cheap daily flights to Toulon and flexible yacht charter durations make Bormes ideal for a long weekend break.

You can also start your yacht charter from the marina at Golfe Juan, close to Antibes, or your catamaran charter from St Raphael, near Frejus and St Tropez. Both locations are convenient for Nice airport and give easy access to the stylish Riviera.

Winds are generally light on the French Riviera Force 2-3 but a strong north-westerly mistral wind blows in July and August, normally for 1-2 days.

"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."
