What is Flotilla Sailing?

Flotilla Sailing offers a safe and fun way for people to get to known a new cruising area. A lead boat guides the fleet to the best anchorages and harbor towns. This “follow-the-leader” style of sailing makes for a very relaxing vacation knowing that your flotilla neighbors are nearby. There are several planned events along the way and you’ll also enjoy the comradery with fellow sailors. You’ll also have ample time to branch off and explore the towns and islands on your own.
