Whoever we are and whatever our background, we always have the same reasons for accepting the challenge of an adventure at sea.
Accepting that challenge with NauticSail is about having time to think and reflect on our own or in great company, while witnessing unspoilt places that take your breath away. It's about enjoying delicious food, swimming in clear blue waters. Through sharing in the NauticSail adventure, we all hope to learn more about ourselves and grow as people.
Each time we go out on the ocean, we immerse ourselves in nature. We learn how to live simply and in harmony with the world around us.

A little about us ...
Hi everyone, well I skippered my first Irish Sea crossing when I was 16, it was in my neighbour's 26 footer.
I spent my teenage summer school holidays as an RYA dinghy instructor - what an amazing job for a schoolkid!
So what hope had I got other than for a career at sea ?
Well I did try other land based careers, like rugby and leading some communications companies, but I came back to a life of adventure on the waves. Rugby in particular taught me the value of teamwork and continues to have a hugely positive influence on how I teach sailing today.
I hold the commercially endorsed RYA Yachtmaster Ocean License (200t) RYA Cruising Instructor and Nauticed Sailing Instructor qualifications. I have sailed tens of thousands of miles as skipper of many different types of boats, mostly around Europe.
Sailing into many beautiful cities and towns is quite a different experience to flying or driving there. Places like Palermo in Sicily, Ibiza Old Town and the wonderfully secluded islands of Croatia always offer a magical time for sailing crew.
It would be my great pleasure to introduce you to offshore sailing. For those that are new to the sport, the pathway is made so much easier by using our NauticEd learning programmes and just getting out sailing with skilled, patient and dedicated sailing teachers.
Join us on the adventure of a lifetime!
Welcome to our base on the Cote d.azur..
What a wonderful place to sail.
It would be a delight to introduce you to Viola, our beautiful 46 foot sailing yacht based in Juan Les Pins near Cannes.
Having sailed extensively in Asia and gained my RYA commercial Yachtmaster Offshore licence I look forward to exploring the locale with you.
Corsica, Northern Italy, Spain and the Balearic Islands are all in reach for Viola.
We would love to hear from you
