New sailing trips in Cuba, the British Virgin Islands and Turkey

Building on the success of its current line-up of sailing trips, G Adventures is to expand its sailing programme for 2014/15 and has launched a range of new nautical itineraries in Cuba, Turkey and the British Virgin Islands.

The small-group adventure operator has seen a significant rise in demand for small-ship sailing over the years, crediting flexible itineraries and high-value experiences as key reasons for its success.  Sailing trips organised by the company are among the itineraries that have the highest number of repeat travellers.

“Small-ship sailing has become increasingly popular. Since its launch in 2004, our sailing programme has quadrupled in size,” says Rich Heller, the firm’s marine product manager.

Yachts and catamarans carry a maximum of eight or 14 travellers and the company also uses yachts of this size on sailing trips in the Greek Islands, Thailand and Croatia. All itineraries vary in length from four to 15 days.

Aspiring sailors can also learn the ropes, receiving pointers from crew and even taking the wheel themselves.

Itineraries include:

  • Sailing Cuba – Havana to Havana – Sail on a catamaran through the beautiful turquoise waters of the Canarreos Archipelago, stop to snorkel or share a drink with friendly locals while enjoying the slow pace of life in the islands
  • Sailing the British Virgin Islands – Tortola to Tortola. – Sail on a catamaran through the beautiful turquoise waters of the British Virgin Islands, stop to snorkel in deep caves, anchor and jump aboard a floating bar and tour around islands by car, or go for a hike.
  • Sailing Turkey – Bodrum to Fethiye – Discover tiny villages along the Turkish coastline, secluded islands and deserted beaches, swim in clear turquoise waters, learn to sail on a state-of-the-art catamaran, marvel at the ancient rock tombs in Dalyan and hike through ancient ruins, sail into the ancient port of Fethiye.
