Caroline - Durham, U.K.

"My sailing trip with Getaway Sailing has left me with memories that will live with me forever. A most enjoyable experience. I suppose what made it so memorable was the enormous variety you will experience throughout your holiday from: 1) been on a flotilla of three boats and getting the opportunity to meet different Nationalities 2) the fun of partaking/or not in the day to day sailing chores 3) experiencing the absolute beauty of the broad range of islands/restaurants off the coast of Croatia 4) the seamless professionalism of the Getaway Sailing team who make every effort to ensure maximum fun every day but yet allowing you the opportunity for your own space 5) the excitement of the unknown! I had so much fun all the gang from last year are meeting up aain for similar trip this year. Need I say anymore!"
