Our team is central to what we do and most of you know them by first name terms, which just goes to show what an incredible job they do. LateSail was established in 1999 and after 20 successful years helping people create their dream sailing holidays, we announced this news back in August. 

Our collaboration with the RNLI for their Mayday campaign raised more than £500 for the life-saving charity. We produced this video guide with some of their volunteers to share their wisdom about the best things to take on a sailing holiday, including life-saving items and some fun things too.

A Mediterranean sailing holiday is not complete without hot sunny weather, great food and shimmering blue waters to dive into. Turkey has these qualities in spades. Just under a five hour flight from the UK, its Lycian coast has plenty of sailing hotspots, from Bodrum to Turkey and everywhere in between. Read our essential sailing guide to Turkey.

Greece yacht charters

You’re truly spoilt for choice when it comes to sailing around the Greek Islands. Places like the North and South Ionian are popular with flotillas, while more experienced sailors will enjoy the Cyclades. With more than 10,000 miles of coastline to explore, here is our pick of the best islands to sail in Greece.

There are so many places to explore on a yacht charter in Croatia that it is almost impossible to pick which sights to see. So that’s why we shared some of the less frequented places which are a short sail, or drive away from Split. Complete with top tips from where to moor or which restaurants to go to, it’s definitely worth reading if you’re sailing from Split in 2020:

Rovinj, Croatia

Greece and Croatia are two of our most popular yacht charter destinations so it’s no surprise it can be tricky to choose where to go on your sailing holiday.
