5 Reasons to Give the Gift of Sailing This Christmas

Stuck for gift ideas this Christmas? Don’t worry, because you’re not alone. From difficult-to-buy-for Dads to the sibling who ‘has it all’, gift-buying has many of us scratching our heads at this time of year. But with the big day fast approaching, how can you choose a Christmas present that will be truly enjoyed and appreciated?

The average British family spends around £600 on Christmas presents, but the festive season is about more than material objects. With plenty of positive Christmas cheer and New Year good intentions just around the corner, there’s no better time to encourage an exciting new hobby. And that’s where we come in.

Here at Viking Mariners, we’re helping you to give the gift of sailing this Christmas. Our gift vouchers can be redeemed against a full RYA course or a learn to sail experience day, perfect for people of all ages and abilities to give sailing a try. If you don’t want to go all-out, our taster sail vouchers give a taste of the sport without the commitment of a course or full-day experience.

So why does sailing make such a special gift?

We love sailing, but we are of course biased. So what about your friend or family member? Why should you consider giving them the gift of sailing this Christmas? Here are 5 simple reasons.

  1. It’s a sport for all generations to enjoy. From grandparents through to grandchildren, our experiences cater for all ages and abilities.

  2. No previous sailing experience is necessary – our friendly crew will (quite literally) teach you the ropes

  3. Sailing opens doors to exciting new experiences. From competitive sailing regattas to relaxing days out on the water with friends and family, it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

  4. Sailing course materials – including the RYA course book – can be purchased via this link to give as a stocking-filler or extra gift.

  5. Your gift will last far beyond Christmas. Memories of sailing on our luxury yachts, motorboat or catamaran will last for a lifetime, and that’s something money can’t buy.

To find out more about our sailing gift vouchers – including sailing experiences and our 4 hour taster sail – head over to our dedicated webpage. Alternatively, give our friendly team a call – we’re always happy to chat.

And last but by no means least, a very Merry Christmas to you all!
