Sailing Holidays Ltd is the largest British owned and operated flotilla sailing holiday company. We have been in operation for 40 years now, and are proud of our family based culture that has introduced sailing to thousands of people over the years.
Sailing Holidays Ltd began life in 1976 as Flotilla Sailing Club. Barrie Neilson joined the company in 1979 as a flotilla engineer and subsequently worked as flotilla skipper for six years in Greece, Florida and the former Yugoslavia.
In 1983 Heidi Seville went out on holiday and decided that Barrie needed 'sorting out' and she is still struggling to do just that! Between them they decided to try to sort the company itself out.proposal was put to the owner, Tom Keen, to take over responsibility for the business and this was accepted.
In 1987 the name was changed to Sailing Holidays Ltd, to more accurately define what the company did, and they sprang into action with eleven Jaguar 27 yachts.
Years later, Sailing Holidays Ltd now has 178 beautiful yachts in Greece, all of which are run on flotilla sailing holidays around the Greek islands.
