Spending a day afloat is a great way of spending time with your friends. It gives you a common goal and plenty to talk about. In addition when you meet up with other crews in the evenings there are always stories to swap and advice to give and receive.
Planning your routes with other crews gives you the option of rafting up for picnic lunches together and sailing in as close company as you would like. Flotilla holidays are all about setting your own pace and deciding how much you want to mix with other crews. There is complete flexibility to be as involved as you would like to be.
