The summer months are not too far ahead, however, the weather is yet to catch up on that movement from blustering rainy winter into a warming relaxed spring. However long this takes, it still leaves many of us out of ideas on what to do for the summer holiday. You could take the ever-popular sun soaked beach holidays, or to try something new and active such as a yacht charter holiday. These days more people are becoming drawn to taking part in something interactive and fun.
Yacht charter holidays provide the best of both worlds, for people looking to relax and stay physically motivated. These are available bareboat or skippered depending on the level of experience people have with sailing holidays. Those who have had very little experience will find that sailing abroad will require plenty of knowledge and practise if you are intending on sailing on a bareboat yacht. Various courses are available for beginners to learn.
Beginners however, are restricted on where they can travel to on their own as years of experience and a recognised certificate in yacht chartering is needed to travel further into Asia and Australia. Yacht charter holidays do not however need experienced sailors as many are catered with experienced staff and substantial accommodation. Depending upon your budget you could enjoy a fully catered luxurious break whilst sailing to different coastal areas.
For those looking to go on a yacht charter holiday will most likely want to travel somewhere further than and warm. The most popular of all yacht charter holidays is Greece and Ionian islands. Here people are relaxed and free to sunbathe on the beach with fellow Ionian locals. Cyprus is possibly the Eastern most side of the Mediterranean, which is why it makes for a better yachting experience.
Ibiza has been tipped to be popular with yacht chartering amongst young people and families. As Ibiza is a club-happy island, with a side of impressive views and quiet serene areas for families to enjoy, this also makes for a good yachting holiday. Often these yachts can accommodate for party atmospheres and celebrations.
Canada is good for people looking to have yachting holiday that is relaxed and scenic. These come with Canadian motor yachts that are fully catered, but there are motor boats available for people who are looking to skip the boat themselves without any help. There are provisions made available for people who looking to learn some basic boating techniques.
Mexico is the next stop for yacht charter breaks. The Mexican yacht aims to entertain guests with exotic feast and musical fun, many of which are based on both the yacht and the beach. The beaches are kept sandy white and the sea turquoise blue, so there is more scope to enjoying the land when you fancy a quick dip and sunbathing time.
A Caribbean Yachting experience is above all the most pleasing and entertaining because of its rich vibrant and colourful culture with tasty and exotic cuisines. Furthermore, there is the abundant opportunity to enjoy a party on the beach with the relaxed and friendly locals.
The best experiences are ones that are experienced with someone, so if you are stuck for ideas this summer, there are plenty of opportunities to try your hand at yachting/sailing away.
