The shallow end
You’ll find yourself on some of the world’s most beautiful coastlines at all of our beachclubs. And from inspiring sunrise to romantic sunset, the water is much more than a backdrop - it’s at the heart of our clubs in Spain, Italy, Sardinia, Croatia and Greece. The secret bays and island hideaways we search out give you the perfect view as you end the day with a cocktail, and also provide excellent, family-safe waters to try your hand at sailing.
You’ll soon be skipping across the waters in your own dinghy on a Neilson sailing holiday. The peaks of the Paklenica National Park can be your perfect backdrop if you choose to start your sailing journey at Alana Beachclub, in Croatia, one of our best sailing locations.
There's something for all levels, and absolute beginners are very welcome, even experts can add some finesse to their technique with our highly-trained instructors. Spend enough time on the water and we can even include a full certification course from the Royal Yachting Association (RYA). If you already know the ropes or fancy more freedom, the waters of our sailing areas are your free-sailing playground.
Kids can learn too, taking a junior RYA course (for a supplement), or sailing with an adult until, at 14, they’re welcomed into adult classes.
As you and your family start to get the hang of the water, using the best kit from top manufacturers, perhaps you’ll take the plunge into our regattas to find out if there’s a Ben Saxton or Nicola Groves in the family.
