In a nutshell, The Gap Week is a floating festival—a week-long escape where you anchor down in a different spot of the Adriatic sea each night. Discover the undiscovered: virginal bays and authentic places that have yet to be discovered as touristic spots.

Reserve your time in summer 2020 and book a skippered sailing week made for you to explore Croatia’s most beautiful islands.

The Gap Week is an exciting new concept brought to you by the creators of and Sail Experience, one of the first party flotilla operators offering sailing holidays for 20 to 35-year-olds.

How does it work?

Sold on the idea of a week-long sailing adventure but just not sure how it works? Let us guide you through the process, it couldn’t be simpler…

The Gap Week

Before your journey begins

Round up your crew: our yachts sleep eight including the skipper. If you don’t have a full yacht worth of people, just book a space individually and we’ll get you matched up with another group.

With a new destination every day, The Gap Week encapsulates the ultimate island-hopping experience. If you’re trying to pack as much into your trip as possible, this experience is for you.

Running conveniently alongside Hideout Festival, it is a great way for all newbies in sailing experience. Time to get involved in a champagne spray in our fleet. We’ll be making the most of every single second, all in the name of a final farewell. We’ll be indulging in our most lavish castle party of the summer so bring your dancing shoes…

Decided? Brilliant. Secure your place with only £90 deposit and you then have to pay the rest in two more instalments.

During the gap week

There’ll be plenty of opportunities to go to a shop and stock up on food and beverages but it’s always a good idea to grab a big haul at the beginning. You’ll drink more than you think; being a sexy pirate is thirsty work!

A typical day will involve a floating lunch, swimming/snorkelling, a chance to explore the island, pre-drinks on deck and the evening’s entertainment. When it comes to exploring, the options are endless. Previous guests have hired mopeds and open-top cars, gone wine tasting and ventured to some of the best beaches in Europe. It’s completely up to you whether you stop in at a restaurant for dinner or make something back on board but you’ll be surprised at how much you can cram into a day.

The nightlife has to be seen to be believed but the variety of places you can drink yourself into oblivion in is impressive. We have private soirées in a 19th-century fort, floating raft escapades, private beach events and access to yacht clubs as well as visiting some of the most exclusive nightclubs that Croatia has to offer.
