Cruising - Hot, Hot, Hot 2019 Corsica

The French island of Corsica lies southeast of the mainland in the Mediterranean Sea. Created by violent volcanic eruptions, Corsica is the most mountainous region of the Mediterranean, and is nicknamed the “scented island” because of the intoxicating perfumes that fill its bush lands. Sailing down the West Coast of Corsica you can view some brilliant white sandy beaches as well as some of the most magnificent mountain scenery in the Mediterranean.

This will be another new destination for the club  - although we visited the southern tip back in 2003. 

Charter Dates

Saturday 14 September - Saturday 21 September

Charter details

Dream Yacht Charters, Ajaccio via Nautilus Yachting

Estimated shared charter cost for 7 days c £340 - £380 per person plus an obligatory cleaning charge and starter pack to add. There will be a refundable deposit or non-refundable insurance to pay.


You will be responsible for booking your own flight. The flyer contains a number of suggestions. 

The club facilitates the trip on a cost neutral basis, i.e. we divide the charter cost by the number of members participating. We will sail as a “mini flotilla” of 4/5 yachts with 5/8 aboard each boat on a pre-planned route. Crews will be put together to best use the accommodation & experience available with the safety of all being paramount. Further details of terms & conditions are available within the flyer.

Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. The number of boats available is very limited and so you must be a current member of HOEOCA to apply. Places will only be opened up to current non- members once interest has been ascertained. 

To secure your place please complete and return the application form below and make the £110 deposit payment as soon as possible. Flights should not be booked until you have received confirmation of acceptance.

Update 19/01/19 We have 5 boats chartered and all places are taken. Please contact Judy if you wish to be put on the waiting list in case of drop outs.
