What is a Rally?
A Yacht Rally is typically a ten to fifteen day hosted sailing holiday with a series of short fun races and days of leisure. Think sailing, swimming, snorkelling, dining and socialising. Sprinkle the mix with a few races and EURIKA - you have a Mariner Boating Rally!
From the water you will experience your travel adventure from a whole new perspective. You are free to explore on your own, and we can give you just enough guidance to dissolve the stress out of your holiday.

It doesn't matter if you are a long-time sailor or someone giving it a try for the first time. Bring a group of people you’d like to travel with, or you come on your own and make life-long friends along the way; anyone can do it!
