If you haven’t planned your summer holiday yet this year then you should cast your attention to sailing. Sailing is good for the soul as we experienced on our beautiful boat ride in Italy recently. Being on the water with the wind in your hair and the fresh sea air is the perfect tonic. Sailing is like hitting the reset button. If you aren’t completely convinced to try sailing, then read on to discover why sailing is good for the soul…
Peace and relaxation
Being on a boat seems to provide you with a level of tranquillity that is unachievable when on land. This is because of the serenity of the waters and the gentle rocking motion experienced by the tide. If you are looking for a relaxing break a sailing holiday is ideal. If you haven’t been on a boating holiday before then it’s the perfect way to hit reset and blow off the cobwebs.
Feel the flow
Going on a sailing holiday means that you will have the opportunity to swim in the beautiful clear water. Being out on a boat also offers the chance to try scuba diving or snorkelling. There’s nothing quite like swimming in the crystal waters with the sun shining. When you’re out sailing or submerged in the clear water it’s the perfect chance to feel the flow of the water and totally reconnect with nature.
Change your perspective
Only a sailing holiday provides you with the opportunity to witness different islands or discover hidden beaches. Wether you board a humble fishing boat or rent a boat in Miami sailing offers you a new perspective. You will be able to look back at the shore, see views you would otherwise miss and totally change your perspective. No one can deny the fact that looking across the sea at the twinkling waters is a magical experience. The sights will take your breath away and you will create moments to hold close for a lifetime.
Most sailing holidays or boat trips will serve up some of the most delicious food at meal times. Many would agree that there is nothing nicer than fresh seafood. From seaweed, to whole fish; the choices are endless.
Getting out to sea and sailing is like hitting the reset button, blowing off the cobwebs and re-energising. What could be better than the crystal clear open sea, delicious food, relaxation, and beautiful scenery?
Sailing holidays aren’t as expensive as you’d think. You can expect to spend the same amount on a yacht based holiday as you would if you were staying in a hotel. You can also filter Airbnb by ‘boat’ stays or just book an experience through them. Alternatively you can stroll along the seafront in the place you are staying and get chatting to local boat tour operators who will offer day trips.
