Sailing a tropical paradise
Departures every 10 days from the 21st January
We are pleased to announce that our Thailand flotilla will be back for 2023, and we will be running a longer season, in anticipation of high demand for winter sailing next year.
Running from the 21st January up to the end of March, our Thailand flotilla explores the Phang Na bay on the sheltered east coast of Phuket, from James Bond Island in the north to Koh Lanta in the south with the famous Phi Phi Islands between. Our flotilla started there in January 2020, and we enjoyed a great first season…right up to the pandemic…for obvious reason it’s been tricky since, but with travel opening up globally, we are determined to make this flotilla the success it promised to be.
The area offers some great sailing, amazing coastal scenery, fascinating local culture and delicious local cuisine. This is a 10 night flotilla which gives the opportunity for sail & stay combinations in Phuket, Bangkok and beyond. We offer a fleet of monohulls and catamarans as well cabin charter, sailing Thailand’s wonderful warm waters.
Sail & Stay
The area offers limitless possibilities to go exploring or relax at a superb beach resort pre and post cruise We offer options to extend your stay in a beach hotel in Phuket or take a connecting flight to Thailand’s exciting capital Bangkok for a couple of days before your return flight to the UK. There are also possibilities in neighbouring countries such as Malaysia and Vietnam. Talk to one of our consultants who will be happy to assist you with a tailor made package.
You can expect temperatures in the high 20’s to low 30’s c and plenty of sunshine. Winds are typically north easterly at this time of year and range between force 2 and maximum force 6.
Cruising level 2+
With some moderate to brisk sailing winds, and moderate tides the area is best suited to those with reasonable previous experience. Most nights are at anchor with plenty of use of dinghy and outboard to get ashore.
Phuket is an Island located in the southwest of Thailand in the Andaman Sea and is considered as the centre of one of the world’s most beautiful sailing areas. The area boasts countless idyllic islands, secluded beaches and all in lush tropical surroundings. The spectacular Phang Nga Bay with its amazing limestone pinnacles made famous through the James Bond film, is just one among many iconic sights we will explore on this amazing trip.
The lead yacht will be a large one with en suite cabins, so for those that don’t want to charter an entire yacht, you can book by the cabin. The support and camaraderie you have come to expect on a Seafarer flotilla will be there with daily briefings and some group meals as well visits to points of interest.
The area features stunning anchorages suitable for overnight stays as there are very few harbours and marinas, whilst charming villages offer unique lunchtime stops. Many of the islands in this region are ringed with dazzling coral reefs so rich in marine life that you’ll be tempted to spend much of your time in the water rather than on it.
All in all it’s a great mix of natural beauty, history and culture plus some great sailing as the icing on the cake!
