Win a Sailing Holiday in the Caribbean Worth £2000

Venture Sail Feature

If you’ve ever watched Pirates of the Caribbean and fancied yourself a regular Jack Sparrow then we have the competition for you.

We’ve partnered with VentureSail so you can take to the high seas aboard a historic ship. Along the way you will immerse yourself in the authentic Caribbean way of life, whilst enjoying the finest local cuisine and exploring islands far off the beaten track.

You’ll have the chance to dive into secluded bays with crystal clear waters, snorkel amidst vibrant coral reefs, and relax on white sand beaches stretching for miles. On shore, you can hike through volcanic islands, explore luscious rainforests and spot tropical wildlife.

This active sailing adventure is the perfect mix of traditional life at sea and time spent ashore whilst being the ideal way to experience a more sustainable holiday in the Caribbean- travelling with the power of the wind! Either get stuck in with the crew and hoist the sails, or simply enjoy the slower pace of life at sea. There’s no sailing experience required – just a taste for adventure.
This fantastic prize includes your accommodation in a private cabin, breakfast each day, and six meals on board (a combination of lunch and dinner). Guests can use the onboard kayaks, snorkel equipment and paddleboards to explore the Caribbean coastline. The prize can be used on any of Florette’s (a classic wooden windjammer ship’s) Caribbean voyages between 22/12/2023 and 06/04/2023, subject to availability. The prize also includes a £400 Flight Center voucher for flights to the Caribbean.
