Destinations


In the Summer of 2013 we will be sailing and exploring north of the Arctic Circle in the Lofoten Islands of Norway. Here the scenery is staggeringly beautiful and the sailing superb.. Join us as we explore this beautiful region.

In Autumn we head south to the sunshine of Spain, Portugal and Madeira arriving in Lanzarote in the Canary Islands for some winter sun and sailing throughout December, January and February.

We offer plenty of long distance sailing passages, particulary from Lanzarote to Madeira, Madeira to the Azores and Azores to Plymouth. Plenty of miles for the enthusiastic sailor

Join us for an ocean adventure sailing north between the mid Atlantic islands of Madeira and San Miguel in the Azores. Take the opportunity to combine coastal cruising with a short ocean passage. We will sail along the spectacular coastline of Madeira before setting course for Punta Delgada on the island of San Miguel in the Azores Archipelago 550 nm away On arrival we will also have time to explore the coastline of this remote island

All our holidays are led by round the world yachtswoman Lin Parker. With 20 years experience she is well accomplished at both introducing the new comer and coaching the more experienced. With our experienced staff and small guest numbers we are able to tailor the exact itinerary around the interests of those onboard making each holiday unique.

Typical Day


The beauty of sailing and our flexible itinerary is there is no need rush. This is the time to leave the stress of detailed schedules behind you. Breakfast is served when you get up; if we have decided on a long sail this could be early, if not we enjoy a relaxed leisurely breakfast. After breakfast the crew prepare the boat for sailing, often allowing enough time for a wander ashore. After departure it is time to clear away the lines and fenders and hoist the sails, take the wheel, trim the sails, plot the course or just sit back and enjoy the sunshine. Whether you are a beginner or experienced sailor we encourage you to do as much or as little as you wish. Time slips by as you admire the scenery and enjoy the fresh air as we head for our next destination. Lunch is often served on the go and so is likely to be simple but delicious. We drop the anchor or moor at our new destination mid to late afternoon. Once the boat is secure afternoon tea is served, and then it is time to go exploring. Dinner is prepared on board and served around 8 pm but to fit in with shore excursions. The food will be good wholesome food and plenty of it, cooked with fresh local ingredients whenever possible. Lin and Richard prepare all the food, but are always happy for a bit of help in the galley, especially when it comes to washing up or when under way. Depending upon our destination evenings can be a quiet time to relax on board, take a stroll ashore to enjoy the peace or sample the local nightlife. You may retire to bed whenever you like. Hot and cold drinks, and snacks are available all day on a help yourself basis. During the week the heads/bathrooms are cleaned daily by the crew as well as the communal areas. The cabins are your personal space, and it is up to you to keep them tidy and stowed for sea.

Age range, type of group


Individuals, small groups and familes are all welcome.

Sleeping and meals


Velvet Lady has 3 twin bedded cabins. Duvet, pillow, bedding and towels are provided.All meals are included whilst living aboard the yacht
