The yacht charter company says that “with premier sailing and stunning scenery on offer, a Dalmatian Island flotilla holiday provides the perfect balance of independence and sociability, with support and guidance available whenever you need it”.
As the highest and largest of all Croatian islands, Brač offers unforgettable views, with plenty of vineyards to be seen on its shores. “Guests will experience Croatia as it once was, visiting old fortresses, built by the same ancient stone used to build the Washington D.C. White House, sail through turquoise waters and enjoy the best cuisine and culture of the Dalmatian Coast,” said a spokesman.
Highlights of the Brač flotilla include:
- Gin and tonic party surrounded by beautiful white-stone houses
- Exciting snorkelling spots and charming beaches
- Great watersports possibilities including kayaking, paddle boarding, and diving
- Modern and lively towns with great nightlife
- Cocktail competition and Rakija – a schnapps, grappa or liquor – tasting by “Little Venice”
- Hilly countryside that’s a honeypot for hikers, bikers and mountaineers
- Visits to some of the region’s most beautiful sites including Jelsa, on Gvar island, a picturesque town surrounded by hills and stunning beaches
- Dingy race and prize giving
Great for families, groups, couples and solo sailors, flotillas offer an informal, hassle-free and incredibly unique experience. Sail in the company of other yachts, and be guided by an expert lead boat, which has a mechanic, skipper, and hostess on board for support and guidance 24/7. Sailing on a flotilla is an easy way to enjoy a sailing holiday, with helpful daily briefings and an expertly tailored itinerary, so you get the most out of your chosen destination. Non-sailors can hire a skipper to get them where they need to be.
Prices for the Brač flotilla start from £1,052 per person (based on a group of four) for a week-long Flotilla, on a Sunsail 34 – two-cabin monohull, including flights from London Heathrow, transfers, YDW (Yacht Damage Waiver) & Flotilla fee, tourist tax and Wi-Fi, departing on 11 September 2021.
Optional skipper hire is £182 per day. Other optional extras include stand up paddle boards available for hire per week for £126 and kayaks from £119.
