A sailing vacation on a yacht is a different experience from other types of vacations. It brings you back to the small pleasures of life, to discovering real adventurous experiences. The freedom to sail to wherever you wish and to places that are accessible only by sea is a wonderful feeling, combined with the peacefulness of wind blowing through the sails; all form the basis for a perfect vacation.
