Book your dates early - Our vessels are not on stand by !

Classic Sailing specialises in adventurous ‘hands-on’ sailing for all our voyages. Our vessels aim to be out there sailing every week of their season.

Our traditional boats and tall ships are fantastic fun for a group charter, but you do have to be quick to be able to reserve a vessel exclusively. Ideally you need to book your dates within a few weeks of a new sailing schedule being published. Each vessel creates an exciting sailing schedule once a year, typically between August and December for the next year. For the ‘all year’ round ships – they normally produce a separate summer and winter sailing schedule in the spring and autumn.
