Clubbing together

6: A non-sailor’s view

As neither I nor Jordan are sailors I was a little concerned about going on a sailing holiday as we had no idea what to expect, even if there was a pool and Kids Club for us to fall back on. I admit to being to pleasantly surprised — there was no pressure to take part in any of the water-based activities but should you pluck up the courage then the support was there with lessons or clinics to build your confidence.

The great advantage of having such fantastic kids clubs is that the youngsters get to have an action-packed fun-filled week with children of their own age, whilst you get to relax in the knowledge they are well cared for. The clubs were simply outstanding, making this one of the most stress-free holidays I’ve had since becoming a parent. Jordan went from not wishing to go to kids club, to not wanting to come home at the end of the week!

And whilst the kids are away, mum gets to relax by the pool, catch up on reading by the beach whilst watching everyone else do the energetic stuff. Or — my personal favourite — indulge in some serious pampering: I can fully recommend the deep tissue full body massage, an hour of pure bliss.

I would definitely book a Sunsail holiday again, and next time I might even give some of the sailing lessons a go!
