Sailing Holidays & Courses
Lying on our sunloungers on the aft deck, you can relax and enjoy a book or a cocktail, away from the sailing action. Lady Jomo provides the perfect solution for time-poor people trying to get their Day Skipper certification but also in need of a relaxing holiday with their loved ones. Extending a course from 5 days to a week or more provides more time to combine learning and relaxation.
Of course, the other option is to leave it all to us and just enjoy a fabulous holiday with comfortable beds, air con and superb food, taking as much or little involvement in the sailing as you like.
