Why a flotilla makes for the perfect sailing holiday Sailing equates to freedom, adventure and a chance to experience nature. Organised flotilla trips are both safe and relaxing, all around. For beginner, veteran sailor or families – the range of options on offer is endless. And always included is an exclusive perspective on the holiday destinations.
