The cards are in the shops, the lights are up in the town centres and the fancy food shops have published their glossy catalogues. Throughout the land people are trying to remember where in the loft they last saw the box full of decorations and tangled fairy lights. Christmas is coming. Soon.
Every year many of us spend hours (even weeks) trying to think of a really great Christmas presents for our friends and family. You would have to be a Grinch not to get a kick out of seeing someone’s face light up as they open the gift you’ve thoughtfully bought them. One of the best feelings we can get as a giver of gifts is that wonderful realisation that the gift you’ve bought, and managed to keep quiet about, is so well received.
For Christmas gifts to be wonderful they don’t have to be extravagant or elaborate, sometimes the best gifts are ones that come from totally out of the blue. Here at Viking Mariners we’re fortunate to be a part of a really special experience that people give as a gift. The sailing experience. Quite often, while chatting with the guests aboard one of our yachts, we hear that the sailing experience guests received as a gift was a total surprise. Several times people have told us that they had never even considered setting sail, but that a day on the water has been an experience they will never forget.
Sometimes all it takes is an afternoon on the gentle waves of the River Orwell to inspire an interest in exploring sailing further. In addition to the leisure sailing experiences we offer, we are also an RYA recognised sailing school. So if you’re looking for a gift for someone who has had a taste of sailing and wants more, then we’re here to help.
We have a range of vouchers available for both sailing experiences and our sea school. Give us a call on 01394 421 209 or get in touch via our contact page to find out more about how we can help you give a really special gift this Christmas. The gift of sailing.
