Velvet Adventure Sailing Ltd offers skippered charter sailing holidays in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere.
On the majority of our charters, berths are available to be booked on an individual basis, come along alone or with a friend or partner and meet other adventurous people. Alternatively put together a group of your own friends or family and charter the whole boat.
Our adventures take place aboard our yacht “Velvet Lady”. She is a 55 foot sailing yacht built by Oyster of Ipswich. Oysters are world renowned for their comfort and security.
All our holidays are skippered by round the world yachtswoman Lin Parker, who has 20 years experience as a professional yacht skipper and is well accomplished at both introducing the new comer and coaching the more experienced. With a maximum of 6 guests and 2 crew aboard, there is plenty of room and we can ensure you are well looked after.
Velvet Adventure Sailing Ltd offers sailing holidays in a comfortable friendly atmosphere. With a maximum of six guests at any one time we specialise in trips for small groups and individuals. You can book a berth or charter the whole boat. We offer the opportunity to visit some destinations not on the usual yachting calendar.
Our ethos is to provide fun filled active sailing adventures in a comfortable and safe environment. Our idea of cruising is to complement a great days sailing with enough time to relax and explore the places that we visit. The destinations we choose are often secluded bays and small fishing ports, rarely modern developed marinas. We’ll be dropping the anchor and taking the dinghy ashore.
Sample itineraries are provided for each trip, to give you a flavour but are not rigidly adhered to! With guests now returning for their 4th trips we know we have the mix right, and promise you a great holiday wherever we stop. Get in touch with Velvet Adventure Sailing Ltd to plan the adventure of a lifetime.
