The Yacht can again be provided as before but the larger ones come complete with crew, the bedding and the hostess attends to the meals and refreshments on board.
You can relax on deck or join in the fun and excitement of the sailing.Again you will need no previous experience of sailing.
Yacht charter can be anything from a one day try it and see event or a weekend sail to a one or two week yachting vacation or even an Ocean crossing.
Obviously a first timer would lean towards the former to start with and would need an experienced sailor to show him the ropes. Many a sailing enthusiast has started this way.
