This type of charter includes sailboats that typically have an overall length of 31 ft. to approximately 60 ft. These sail boats can be chartered without a hired skipper or can be hired with a skipper.
If you and at least one of your crew mates have sailing licenses or certifications, or can provide references of sailing proficiency to skipper your own boat of the size you plan to charter, you can be your own skipper.
You should consider hiring a skipper for your charter if either you do not have the experience yourself or if you want to sail the boat but not take on the responsibility of the charter. One reason very experienced captains take on a skipper is the local knowledge of the sailing conditions as well as the knowledge of the best places to see along your sailing itinerary. The choice is yours.
