We can provide fully qualified, experienced and friendly Skippers to take charge of sailing your yacht for the week.

Let us look after you: book a skipper if you don’t have anyone experienced enough to take charge onboard or if you’d just like an extra excuse to sit back, relax and enjoy your holiday. Our skippers are qualified to meet all local requirements (as a minimum) and know the exact route, where’s good to stop and swim, as well as where to go in the evenings. They will ensure you have the best time possible!

You can do as much or as little sailing as you want and the skippers will help you learn to sail if you are keen! It’s a great opportunity to have a fun holiday and learn something exciting and new at the same time!

All of our skippers have been hand selected by the team at The Big Sail to ensure all our guests have a fun, safe and relaxing week.

Alternatively if you would like to skipper yourselves (bareboat charter), the minimum requirement is for at least 1 person onboard to have an International Certificate of Competence (ICC) for sailing, or an RYA Day Skipper certificate or higher. Please get in touch if you are not sure about what you need or if you want us to check your qualifications meet the requirements.
