Close your eyes and imagine yourself lying in the sun, on a luxury yacht which softly lolls from side to side as gentle waves break against its bow. Think you’re dreaming? Luxury yacht holidays are actually something that you can afford. There are superb holiday clubs out there which offer fantastic holidays, at affordable prices.
Last year, I travelled on board a 60 foot cruising catamaran, courtesy of CLC Yacht Club. We travelled around the stunning Tyrrhenian Sea, living life to the full and enjoying every minute. Every day of the week-long vacation brought a new sight, a new adventure and a new slice of heaven. We visited Mount Palermo and the remains of Pompeii. We tiptoed precariously near the bubbling mud of Volcano, walked through lemon and olive groves and wondered at the many colors of the Italian landscape. Whilst sailing round Corsica, we watched dolphins racing the yacht. Scuba-diving, swimming and island exploration were the orders of the day. It was perfect.
There are so many beautiful places to travel to on a yacht holiday. You could sail round Naples or Montenegro, or even be especially adventurous and head to the Red Sea. Each sailing experience will open your mind to different cultures, customs and settings. With each, you will be sure to find beautiful weather, delicious food and good company. Deciding on your summer holidays? Sailing on a yacht is definitely a good option.
Club La Costa (CLC) offers a wealth of sumptuous yacht holidays. Their luxury yachts come equipped with two experienced and skilled crew members, whose job it is to sail the yacht for you and cook you exquisite meals each day. With these guys on board, all you will need to do is sit back and relax. Then there’s the fact that CLC offer a range of fun activities to do on board, should you wish. Each yacht comes equipped with the equipment needed to scuba dive, snorkel, water-ski, wake board, fish, kayak and even to windsurf, if you are experienced.
CLC takes its members to destinations such as Naples, the dramatic setting of many places of historical interest, such as Pompeii, Herculaneum and the mighty Mount Vesuvius. They also run sailing holidays in the Red Sea, a calm and brilliant expanse of water, teeming with an abundance of brightly colored flora and wildlife. This summer’s sailing will be in Montenegro, a wonderfully rugged coastline along the Adriatic Sea. Ancient towns, deserted fortresses and sumptuous Mediterranean dishes await you in this idyllic paradise.
