Sailing Holidays

Suggested 1-week itinerary from Bormes

DAY 1 : Embark at Bormes les Mimosas. There are shops and a supermarket nearby and a market on Saturdays. This delightful Provencal village takes its name from the abundant mimosa plants that grow in the hillside surrounding the village. A great starting place to explore the Iles d’Hyeres.
DAY 2 : Port de Porquerolles (20nm) is the largest of the Iles d’Hyeres this island is designated a Nature Reserve and the waters around the island protected as a marine reserve, so the snorkelling is great. Hire bicycles to explore the botanical trails across the wild interior of this island. Port de Porquerolles is the main harbour and offers good shelter and a wide range of restaurants.  
DAY 3 : Sail east to St Tropez (25nm) one of the best known ports along the coast. Relax in one the many waterfront cafes where you can soak up the atmosphere and view the megayachts of the rich and famous. Moor in a visitor’s berth or anchor just outside the harbour. Marina de Cogolins across the bay also has overnight berths. 
DAY 4 : Explore the canals of Port Grimaud (5nm). The village is built around a series of canals which can be explored by dinghy. Arched bridges across the canals have made the village inaccessible in places to cars so there is a lovely sense of tranquillity. Overnight on the yacht quay here or across the bay at St Maxime.
DAY 5 : Sail west to Cavalaire (17nm), formerly a small fishing harbour, but now a popular summer resort due to the long sandy beach stretching round the bay. Excellent marina and a wide choice of restaurants and bars.
DAY 6 : Ile Port-Cros (15nm) is the highest of the Iles d’Hyeres, also a Nature Reserve with an excellent snorkelling trail. There are many restaurants around the harbour Avoid the day-trippers by visiting during the week.
DAY 7 : Back to Bormes les Mimosas (15nm)

"We have just returned from a fabulous 2 weeks sailing from Fethiye. It was easily the best experience we have had with perfect sailing weather throughout. The area around Fethiye Bay is lovely and there is plenty of historic and natural interest as well as beautiful clear water for swimming and great food. Our flotilla leaders, Mike and Debbie are the best we have come across and have to sing their praises! They have so much sailing experience and an excellent knowledge of the local area where they have developed good relationships with local people, that helped to make our visits to restaurants etc even better. We will definitely be visiting Turkey again-would love to sail with Mike and Debbie again-but have been impressed with the maturity, experience and humour of other Nautilus leaders on other trips as well, so, as they say, we’ll be back!"
