Home » 10 Signs You Need a Sailing Holiday
Like most people, you require a little rest and relaxation now and then. You work hard day in and day out, providing for your family, attending to important matters, and taking care of business. In this complicated and busy thing we call life, you deserve a break. That reprieve can come in a number of forms, but sometimes, there’s only one true cure that will deliver the ultimate in relaxation, rejuvenation, and joy: the sailing holiday. If daily minutiae has been getting you down, you’re probably ready for a sailing holiday. Feeling a sense of restlessness or a desire to have an adventure? You need a sailing holiday. A cure-all for nearly any ailment, here are 10 signs and symptoms that let you know: it’s time to book that yacht charter!

1. You’ve forgotten the intoxicating scent of the ocean.

Can you picture it? The soothing, salty aroma of the Coral Sea. If it’s been ages since you were invigorated by the fresh sea air, a sailing holiday is just what the doctor ordered.

2. A special occasion is coming up, and you need the perfect plan to celebrate it.

If an anniversary, birthday, wedding, or other event is on the horizon, that event deserves the royal treatment. Celebrating a special occasion on a Whitsunday yacht charter is the ideal way to create an unforgettable memory for you and your loved ones.

3. You’ve checked the calendar and school holidays are just around the corner.

Soon the children will be set free, with all their energy and enthusiasm. The school holidays are when parents and children receive a much-needed break from the rigours of common life. To plan a getaway that the entire family will be thrilled with, a sailing holiday is calling your name. Snorkelling, swimming, bushwalking, fishing, and dinners on deck under the stars. What more do you need?

4. Your confidence is waning or needs a gentle push.

Every now and again, we all need a little boost. Perhaps you’ve not had a chance lately to pursue your passions or to engage yourself wholeheartedly in an adventure. Sailing your own private cruising vessel is the very best way to recapture that sense of strength and accomplishment. Skippering a powerful yacht for a week can revitalise you for months to come.

5. You’ve forgotten how to live in the moment.

If life seems an endless blur of meetings, appointments, work, and chores, when is the last time you stopped to simply breathe? Toss those cell phones into the drawer and close up your calendars. A sailing getaway in the Whitsundays will force you to disconnect, and take in what really matters. A yacht charter holiday can bring you back to yourself.

6. Your newest set of bathers is from 1989.

Want to feel luxurious and tropical? In the Whitsundays, the gentle aquamarine waters beckon you to feel their cool waves and it’s impossible to ignore their invitation. A sailing holiday is the perfect excuse to go shopping for a new swimsuit, so you can enjoy the ocean in style.

7. Your wife (husband, significant other, child) continually begs you to take them somewhere “special.”

Are your family members constantly complaining about a lack of excitement or wonder? You can surprise them all with the greatest getaway of their lives on a Whitsunday sailing holiday. It’s more than special, it’s a dream come true.

8. Your fishing gear is collecting dust.

Your techniques may be rusty and your gear stiff from disuse, but when you get that fishing line back into your hands, it will all come flooding back to you. There’s incredible fishing in the Whitsunday Islands, whether you want to sport fish for prized catches or sink a line for a tasty dinner.

9. Your typical romantic evening includes pizza and Netflix.

It may be time to spice things up a little. Give your sweetie an incredible gift when you present them with a romantic sailing holiday in one of the world’s most stunning destinations. With cosy vessels that are perfect for two, your week of luxurious bliss will renew your passion.

10. You’re due for setting sights on spectacular scenery.

Perhaps it has simply been awhile since you’ve seen a glorious natural site. In this case, it is time you witnessed the world’s beauty again. There’s nothing like the Whitsundays, and a sailing holiday is the best way to experience them. Ready to book?
