Should you require one, Omegasail will be pleased to provide you with a Professional Skipper, who will look after you and guide you to the best spots throughout your sailing holiday. Relax all week, or if you’d like to learn a little about what makes it all work, our Skippers will be more than happy to show you the ropes. Who knows, with a little informal instruction, by the end of the week you could be sailing the yacht yourself!
Our Skippers are all professionally qualified, many are RYA Yachtmaster and some are even qualified RYA Instructors – all have local knowledge and plenty of experience sailing in the area.
It is also possible to hire a hostess to look after you and provide half board meals (breakfast and light lunches). It is highly unusual to hire a chef, as the general catering on yachts of this size, taking into account galley facilities, is fairly simple and straightforward. A hostess will equally make up your cabin daily and serve you drinks in the evenings should you decide to stay on board, but most evenings you would eat ashore in the many Tavernas.
