Sunsail Adds Flotilla Routes in UK

More than 45 years after launching the first flotilla holidays, specialist operator Sunsail is introducing two flotilla routes in the UK for 2020.

Sunsail is adding a fleet of new Jeanneau yachts to its UK programme this March. The investment, worth £3.75 million, will deliver 15 new Sunsail 41.0 yachts in 2020, with the planned addition of a further 10 yachts in 2021. The luxury Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 41.0 yachts offer a beautiful, modern and spacious interior, equally comfortable in both cruising and racing scenarios.

Based at Port Solent in Hampshire, the new fleet will be available for charters exploring the south coast, starting in Portsmouth, Southampton, Cowes, Lymington and throughout the Solent. The region offers steady winds and excellent sailing conditions, providing an exciting challenge for even the most seasoned of sailors, while the option of hiring a Sunsail skipper is there for families and groups who want to try sailing for the first time.

One option is the Easter Solent Sights Flotilla. Available from 10-13 April, this four-day flotilla over the long Easter weekend is set to mark the start of the British sailing season. A new luxury Sunsail 41.0 yacht for up to nine people in April for four days costs £1,320 per person.

Also available are two Summer Bank Holiday Flotilla sailings (23-25 May and 29-31 August). The three-day mini-cruises tour some of the most famous detinations of the Solent. Price again is £1,320.

The Easter Solent Sights Flotilla and Summer Bank Holiday Flotilla holidays include a fully equipped Sunsail 41.0 yacht, Yacht Damage Waiver, lead yacht and crew to guide, assistance with moorings and a G&T evening party. At each daily morning briefing, the lead crew advises on the day's sailing, ideal routes, weather conditions and hidden gems to discover together. Packed full of fun group activities, flotilla holidays offer the chance to explore with new friends or enjoy independence. Skippered charters are also available.
