Are you looking for new experiences or a hands-on adventure holiday? Our charter cruises suit people with any level of sailing experience. Beginners and families of all ages welcome!

All Rival Sailing cruises are skippered by an experienced RYA Instructor. Your skipper will look after you, make sure you’re comfortable and teach you as much as you want to know. You’ll spend your holiday learning the ropes and sailing yacht East End Endeavour in the inshore waters of the Clyde or exploring the west coast of Scotland. Safe, rewarding and memorable!

Kilbrannan Sound

Kilbrannan Sound

A weekend or short cruise will give you ample time to discover beautiful lochs, islands and anchorages within the Firth of Clyde.

A longer cruise could give you the chance to explore further afield in the Clyde and beyond – perhaps to the Scottish Hebrides or Ireland. You might also like to consider a bespoke charter cruise with add-ons tailored to suit you. How about a distillery tour, heritage trail or extra outdoor ventures? See things to do & see for ideas!

Rival Sailing charter cruise prices are inclusive of all meals, (non-alcoholic) beverages and snacks aboard the boat, plus berthing fees and fuel. Please note the price does not include a meal on the evening of arrival – this can be arranged at your own cost. Off-peak prices (October to April inclusive) are listed in brackets.

Check our sailing calendar for available dates and get a group of friends or family together for a private skippered yacht charter (4-6 persons). If you’re an individual or smaller group with some sailing experience you might like to join one of our advertised mile-builder cruises. Please contact us if you’d like more details about holiday charters or mile-builders.
