This question does not need too many explanations for those who are experienced sailors and undertake sailing vacations for years on their own or on chartered yachts. It is only recommended to browse data on local sailing areas as well as local meteorological circumstances. However, many experienced sailors also hire a professional local skipper when sailing in new and unknown areas, in order to have more relaxed vacations and enjoy sailing with fewer worries than usual.

 

If you are not confident with your sailing skills or you did your sailing exam recently, it is recommended to hire a local professional to teach you about local waters and regulations in ports and marinas. In such situation it would be very useful if you consider your skipper as a tutor on your sailing trip and try to do as many maneuvers as possible on your own. This also refers to route planning and other aspects of safe sailing. Ask your skipper for advices and try to learn from him/her useful tricks and tips.

For those who have no sailing experience or a valid navigation license it is strongly recommended to hire a professional. Professional skipper possesses a vast knowledge and experience in sailing techniques, maneuvers, route planning and onboard safety. Professional skippers are also educated in first aid and sometimes medical care as well. Furthermore, skipper is able to mend typical damages on deck equipment, sails and an engine, as well as the electrical and other installations. A good skipper is very well acquainted in the best spots for swimming and snorkeling and above all, in best restaurants and bars in the area. Good skippers usually speak at least one foreign language; they are communicative, cheerful and well behaved. Sailing in a new and unknown areas sometimes consider a dimension of exploring expedition and is exciting by a default, but hiring the skipper guarantees safe and relaxed sailing trip for sure.

                 

In terms of luxury sailing, a part of professional skipper hiring a hostess is also something worth considering. Her job is much more than just help skipper maneuvering and maintain the yacht. Hostess usually takes care of pretty important aspects of luxury sailing – she takes care of food and beverage supplies, she fixes cocktails, prepares finger food and snacks, she chooses best wines for her crew, she keeps the yacht clean and tidy and is always there for any other help aboard. Good hostesses usually speak several foreign languages, they know much about local hotspots and the best offer of nightlife, bars and restaurants. Many of them possess a vast knowledge about food and beverage management while sommelier license among hostesses is not rare any more.

Last but not least some luxury yachts have aboard the chef too. In that case excellent food is served at least three times a day while hostess and chef share duties in terms of taking care of provision, supplies, preparation and serving. Good yacht’s cook is there to prepare your favorite food while in many cases he/she cooks so well that his choice of menu makes you change your mind about your own favorites.

At the end of the day, there are yachts to charter with their own crew aboard while hiring skipper, hostess and/or chef separately is always the option.
