What we're about

Hi, my name is Eric, your French captain. I started sailing at 12 and never stopped since.
I want to take you sailing in the best spots in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean to share with you my favorites spots and witness the beauty of land and ocean from a luxury sailing yacht.
I want to make you taste all the flavors of the Mediterranean dishes.
I want to transmit my 50 year old passion of the sea to you.
You will sail, explore, learn, dine, keep yourself hydrated :), maybe learn how to improve your cooking skills, swim, dance and most of all have a memorable experience with your fellow guests, myself and our French cook (Max group of 6).
Each couple has its own double bed cabin and bathroom.
Are you coming?

The French Riviera on a 45' sailing catamaran - 1 week

Saint-Raphaël

$1,750.00

My goal is to share with you the French way of living on a sailboat which includes, travelling, exploring, good food, wine, music and lots of good humor. Here is a sampling of the dishes to expect from your Mediterranean chef: Breakfast: eggs, cheese, ham, croissants, pain au chocolat and our famous baguette (cereals if you wish lol) Lunch: a variety of salads: nicoise, greek, taboule, nordic, rice salad, all with lots of ingredients and flavors from the south of France. Dinner: (2 or 3 included): Calamars a la Cetoise Tajine Rougail saucisses Grilled fish or meat Ratatouille We also have a tradition before dinner to have an aperitif with little things to get your appetite going; crackers with tapenade, brandade, artichokes, grissini, vegetables, mussels...etc. No! you will not gain weight...as long as you burn it all :) it's actually very healthy food so no worries and stay away from the delicious selection of cheeses...if you can. The French Riviera is where I grew up, sailed and delivered boats up and down the Mediterranean when I was younger:) So many sights, harbors, coves, little towns to discover that 6 days will be plenty to show you the best spots. We start from Saint Raphael, my home town. Tentative itinerary (weather permitting) Day 1 Sail to Cannes, enjoy the stunning riviera coastline, anchor in the Isles de Lerins (there is a monastery there where monks make their own cheese) Day 2 Sail to St Tropez and anchor in the famous baie des Canebiers where Brigitte Bardot lives. St Tropez is a little gem off season, hosting each year the famous voiles de St Tropez with 300 sailing yachts racing for a whole week. Day 3: We stick around St Tropez for the day and visit the town, the amazing maritime museum. Plenty of restaurants and nightlife. Day 4: Sail to Port Cros and Porquerolles, 2 gorgeous islands off Toulon. Day 5: Visit the islands, lots of nature walks and sights to discover Day 6: Sail back to Saint Raphael with stops on the way like the little town of Bandol where they make the best rose wine in the world. $1750 per person (double occupancy, 6 guests maximum+2 crew) Price includes: 6 night accommodations on board in a double occupancy cabin Breakfast and most lunches and 2 or 3 dinners aboard.

A maximum of 6 guests (plus 2 crew) must attend to make this happen. Looking forward to sailing with you. Visit our website at www.sail-works.com
