When the wind begins to blow and the sails power up, a sail charter can be quite a thrill, especially if you’re part of the action. On a bareboat sail charter, at least one of your groups should have some sailing experience, for safety. A sail charter can be an exhilarating experience if you’re guided by a competent crew.
