Messing about in boats isn’t just for Duran Duran

But it’s not just the rich and famous who will be able to escape the grey and cold British winter to enjoy an idyllic Caribbean sailing holiday. Miramar Sailing, Antigua’s premier sailing holidays operator, has opened up the “rock and roll lifestyle” to everyone by offering a seven-night Villa and Yacht combination holiday from just £525 per person (details below) and week-long skippered yachting holidays from just £1,060 per person.
Comments Brian and Pippa, founders of Miramar Sailing: “Many seem to think that lounging around on the deck of your very own private yacht in the Caribbean this winter is beyond their wildest dreams, but it’s not. When you compare our prices to those of a family ski holiday and include the essential things like ski and boot hire, ski lessons and lift passes, hiring your own private yacht for a week and cruising around Antigua in the glorious sunshine suddenly becomes the cheaper option.”
A holiday aboard your very own private yacht is the height of hedonism. Sunbathing on the deck of a 40ft yacht, looking out over the crystal clear water to the soft white sands in the distance, guest get to enjoy the feeling that no one in the whole world knows where they are – nor can they possibly be reached unless they choose to be accessed.
Miramar Sailing still has plenty of holiday availability this winter, including its seven day Villa and Yacht cruise. On the cruise guests will spend the first four days of their holiday relaxing at a two-bedroom waterfront villa in Antigua’s most sought after area, Jolly Harbour. The remaining three days are spent aboard their very own private 40ft yacht. Professionally skippered, guests will enjoy a scenic cruise around Antigua’s South Coast; taking in Falmouth Harbour, Nelson’s Dockyard at English Harbour and a sunset trip to Shirley Heights and its spectacular views across both harbours to the islands of Montserrat and Guadeloupe. With tailor-made departures and itineraries, the seven-night holiday costs from just £525 pp. Price is based on four sharing and includes four nights’ villa accommodation (self catering) and three nights’ skippered yacht accommodation (most meals included). Flights extra.
