Sailera Yachting offers a wide range of yachts to choose from, catering to various group sizes and preferences. Our team can assist you in finding the perfect yacht that meets your specific needs.

Before setting sail, plan your itinerary to make the most of your trip. Research the destinations you wish to visit, considering factors like weather conditions, sailing distances, and time constraints. Sailera Yachting offers expert guidance on crafting the ideal itinerary, ensuring that you have a well-balanced mix of exciting sailing routes and opportunities for relaxation and exploration.

3. Learn the Basics of Sailing

While you dont need to be an experienced sailor to enjoy a yacht charter, its helpful to have some knowledge of the basics. Familiarize yourself with sailing terminology, wind patterns, and navigation techniques. Your captain provides comprehensive briefings before your voyage, ensuring that you feel comfortable and confident while handling the yacht.

4. Follow Safety Guidelines

Safety should always be a top priority during your sail. Pay close attention to safety guidelines provided by the captain and familiarize yourself with the safety equipment on board. Ensure that life jackets are readily accessible when necessary. If you have any questions or concerns, dont hesitate to consult with Saileras staff.

5. Pack Appropriate Gear

When preparing for your adventure, ensure you pack a variety of clothing items to stay comfortable in different conditions. Its advisable to use a convenient fabric bag for packing, which can be easily stored in the cabin. Bring shorts for warm weather, lightweight long trousers for versatility, and a fleece jacket, sweatshirt, or sweater to ward off the nighttime chill. Consider walking either barefoot or in lightweight deck shoes (refrain from wearing these shoes onshore to prevent sand or pebbles from getting on the deck). Prefer shoes with white soles to avoid leaving marks, and plain canvas options are particularly suitable. For excursions on dry land, consider packing either sandals or walking boots, particularly if hiking is on the agenda. Additionally, dont forget to include flip-flops or crocs, especially useful for visits to the bathroom where ease and convenience are key.

6. Embrace the Sailing Experience

Sailing offers a unique opportunity to disconnect from the world and immerse yourself in the serenity of the open water. Embrace the experience fully by taking time to appreciate the beauty of your surroundings, feel the wind in your hair, and enjoy the peacefulness of being at sea.
