A truly personalised service from Eddie & Jo English of SailCork. Not only did we have wonderful sailing, but also learnt so much about the history, culture, geography and of course the best places to eat out in Croatia. Highly recommended!

An excellent antidote to the bleak Irish winter. Already planing for... More

The Grenadines Feb 2013 My husband and I joined SailCork for a cruising week in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

All... More
