We realise that there should be much more to yachting than just access to a yacht. Yachting should be a sociable activity that needs to cater to everyone, not just the ‘sailor’. By engaging everyone you have a more enthusiastic crew and generations enjoy being together. Additionally, sailing always involves additional costs from gear to buy, to simply eating and drinking at locations you visit.
Therefore, to increase the value of your membership, we run a comprehensive Social Programme throughout the year. We have a Sea Miles Loyalty Programme that both gives you valuable discounts where you will be spending money in any event, and gives you free Sea Miles. Sea Miles that you can spend on a wide range of clothing, RYA courses, personal instruction and skills days, our Mediterranean yacht, and our socials and more…
Our social events are all about having fun with your friends and family, enjoying the company of others that are of similar mind, and doing and seeing things that you most likely would have missed out on if you were sailing on your own. Members also learn much from each other and through meeting at our social events lifetime sailing friends are regularly made.
Best of all, at FlexiSail we see our socials as providing a benefit of membership and charge them at cost. This means, for example, our 4 day cross Channel costs around 1/3rd of commercial rates.
With events throughout the year and as varied as skiing in the Spring to a Mediterranean flotilla in the Summer, there is much to enjoy should you wish to.
Sea Miles Loyalty Card
At FlexiSail we want you to get the most out of your membership with us and enjoy every moment of your sailing experience.
We believe that the quality of your experience is not just about the time you spend out on the water sailing, but extends to time spent in port. This may be your ‘home’ port or one which you visit on your travels. We have, therefore, teamed up with an Ionian charter company, retailers, restaurants, insurers and much more to save you money on your purchases. Just show your membership card and the discounts and special offers are yours every time.
Sea Miles are given free to members during the year, but also at annual renewal. Collected and accumulated Sea Miles can then be spent in a number of ways be it on products, our training skill set days, training courses, socials, or our Mediterranean yacht. It is our way of saying thank you to you as a member and giving you some valuable and useful benefits.
One of the reasons for sailing in the UK is to obtain RYA qualifications, experience, and skills so that you can enjoy bareboat charters in the Mediterranean and around the world.
We all like sailing in the sunshine and so in addition to running our annual Mediterranean flotilla we have our yacht Dreamcatcher permanently based in the Med for our members to use.
We wanted to give you a higher quality experience than yacht charter, whilst subsidising the use to encourage our members to explore the Mediterranean independently. Our yacht is a Wauquiez 43 foot Pilot Saloon, refurbished in 2016 at a cost of £180,000 to give you a truly exceptional luxury yacht, which is comfortable, safe and powerful. Every luxury is installed including fully sprung deep mattresses, air conditioning, and a generator making shore power unnecessary.
As a UK FlexiSail member you can add the use of Dreamcatcher to your membership for around 50% of what you would expect to pay for a lower quality yacht of a similar size. You can also pay for your usage of Dreamcatcher in full, or part, using your free Sea Miles. In fact if you are used to chartering for a couple of weeks in the Med every year you will find that you can have a basic membership plus sail Dreamcatcher, or join our annual flotilla for a very similar overall cost!
