The 5 benefits of a sailing holiday

A sailing yacht is much more than a hobby or a moment of leisure for sea-lovers. As a matter of fact it is well-known that sailing on a yacht is a way of life, just like for surfing as well as for any sport discipline linked to the sea. A sailing holiday does not only allow you to get close to nature, it also gives you the chance to rediscover yourself. There are several benefits when you go on holiday on a sailing yacht, both from a physical and a psychological point of view. We are going to talk about 5 of them, but we invite you to discover more: go on holiday on a sailing yacht by chartering a yacht in Sardinia

1. A sailing yacht gives you peace

Now more than ever we all need peace and serenity. Sailing a yacht also means exercising, especially if you decide not to take a skipper, thus stimulating dopamine and serotonin production, also known as “happiness hormones”. Sailing a yacht, both on the open sea as well as along the coast, gives you the chance to lower your stress’ level, which is the cause of our daily anxiety and at the same time makes us realise that our mind never stops. As a matter of fact, even if you are always enjoying sailing, concentration on a sailing yacht must always be high, as sea conditions may vary frequently.

2. Respect the environment

A sailing holiday is one of the less polluting ways of travelling. All you need is a good knowledge of the winds, sea currents and of course of the yacht, in order to fully enjoy the power of nature without consuming fuel. When you are onboard a yacht you also immediately realise the shortage of resources we have as human beings. You must carefully manage water and electric power consumption in order not to find yourself empty-handed. This is one of the most important advice given to sailors.

3. A sailing holiday helps to change perspective

Give it a try: visit a place over land whether by car, bike, train, or foot. And then visit the same place arriving by boat. The perspective changes, doesn’t it? When you go for a sailing holiday you can discover less crowded places, hidden bays which cannot be reached by foot. That is how you can enjoy total relax and listen to nature only.

4. The sea is good for your health

A vacation by the sea is recommended to all, especially to those who suffer from respiratory disease. There are many advantages for the human body thanks to the marine climate: just think about how healthy a simple walk on the beach can be. Sea water also helps skin irritation to soothe and the mixture of calcium, sodium chloride, potassium, silicium and iodium is a panacea for your bronchi and lungs all year around.

5. A sailing holiday is good for the mind

Blue colour helps to relax: by lowering your heartbeat it helps focusing. Then why not set sail and dive into the blue sea?
