If you’ve never sailed in Greece, Spain and other Mediterranean destinations you may not have come across Mediterranean mooring or Med mooring as it’s often called. The principle of Med mooring is to go ‘stern to’ a concrete dock while laying anchor chain without crossing other yacht chains. Sounds easy…well throw in tiny quaint harbors with fishing boats and wind on the beam and it can be a bit trickier! To help you out, we’ve compiled a comprehensive guide. Expertly written by our Charter Director Steven Parry, Steven gives you the benefit of his 20 years’ experience of sailing in Greece. The guide will give you an insight into every possible Med mooring situation and top tips of how to overcome problems quickly. It’s great bedtime reading in advance of your first Med mooring experience! Read the guide to Med mooring.
Summer may be over in the Med for 2022, but in the Virgin Islands it's summer all year round especially at the US Virgin Islands Yacht Show!
You've decided you want your sailing vacation to be relaxing with crew but how do you know if a skippered charter is enough, or if a luxury fully crewed yacht is the experience you dream of?
