Almost all guys joining our trips are single. After getting to meet eachother during the ﬁrst shopping and some sundowners, a cabin division will be made. If there is (mutual) preference or if you come with a friend or your partner, you can of course share a cabin with that person. Every yacht is equipped with several double bed cabins and a bunk bed cabin.
We are usually sailing with around 10 guys per boat. On some trips we will sail in ﬂotilla with 2 or more Saltyboys boats. This means a smaller group (your own boat team) during the day and meeting more Saltyboys at lunchtime/in the evening when we team back up in a bay or in port.
Probably the biggest concern people have before booking a sailing trip is having enough space or freedom on board. Sailing yachts always provide a nice spot for you to be comfortable and enjoy the amazing scenery or work on your suntan. You will be surprised how group dynamics during a sailing day can provide you with some good conversation or give you total piece of mind to read a nice book or listen to your favourite tunes on your iPod.
Just enjoy teaming up with your fellow Saltyboys crew members every now and then. As said, you can assist the skipper with adjusting the sails, steering the boat or helping out with the anchoring maneuvers. Others enjoy preparing a nice coffee in the yacht’s galley, organizing breakfast or lunch. Teaming up for grocery shopping in the harbor villages or marketplaces with fresh fruit, ﬁsh and vegetables can make a fun outing as well. By turning in shifts of 2 guys, it will come down to preparing a meal and doing the dishes one time for the whole week. If this doesn’t match your holiday ideas, the Saltyboys Luxury Sailing might be more your thing.
You don’t need any sailing experience to join our trips. The skipper can maneuvre the boat single handed. There are a few moments on every sailing day that a few hands are welcome. For example when arriving/leaving port and when hoisting the sails. Before taking off, the skipper will assign the A-team (2 guys on the anchor) and a few guys to catch/throw the stern-lines. Our aim is of course that by the end of the week every Saltyboy will have become more, or at least looks like, a bit of a sailor 😉
This type of holiday would rather ﬁt into the adventurous hands-on gay sailing trip than a massive gay cruise on one of the big cruise-liners.
All Saltyboys group sailing trips are about having a fun, relaxed and enjoyable time together. Your Saltyboys skipper always makes sure to sail you between the best bays and beaches and cute harbour villages in the area. During the day there will be plenty of time for swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, reading a book or getting to know each other.
Depending on where we drop anchor we’ll enjoy an on-board BBQ or dinner in the restaurants on the shore after some nice sundowners. Here the Saltyboys sample and spice up the local gay scene or build a campﬁre on the beach.
