Whether you’re travelling solo, with a friend or in a group, we take time to ensure you’ll be going on your trip of a lifetime with likeminded people of a similar age. And as you’ll be sailing in smaller flotillas of between five to seven yachts, you’ll have the chance to make plenty of new friends.

OUR ROUTES As the original sailing holiday company for 20-35year-olds, our routes are tried and tested, taking in the very best of what the Mediterranean has to offer. Our routes include more islands and more stops than any other operator. Our yachts also have access to stunning villages, marinas and bays unavailable to larger motorised boats.

We also supply unlimited drinking water at no extra cost. You will be feasting on a fresh breakfast and lunch from local produce every day, all included in the price of your holiday.

A SAILING HOLIDAY You’ll be travelling around the Med on board a stylish sailing yacht. Sailing is at the heart of everything we do. In 2010, MedSailors was founded by three Kiwis after enjoying amazing sailing trips around the Med. We wanted to share that experience with others. Since then, we’ve built ourselves up to be industry leaders, offering hand-picked skippers, top-quality yachts and unbeatable sailing holidays.

KAYAKOY VILLAGE - FREE

WHY IS OUR SEASON IN TURKEY SO SHORT?

Kayakoy is a deserted Greek village with a fascinating history. 
 Abandoned in 1923 it’s now an intriguing ghost town completely overrun by nature, well worth exploring!

As Turkey is located so much further south than Greece and Croatia, the peak summer months are extremely hot. You can expect mid summer temperatures to hit the high 40ºC and even a dip in the gorgeous Med will not be able to cool you down! When we sail in late August and September the intense summer heat has mellowed and you will enjoy long sunny days and balmy nights, with temperatures closer to 30ºC and hence more similar to Greece and Croatia.

TURKISH BATH - £10 Known locally as a Hammam, you can’t visit Turkey without having a Turkish bath! Book a traditional experience where you’ll go into a steam room, before being washed and massaged!
