islands (11)

Ian Gilmour has a company in the UK called Pelican Racing, which focuses on competitive sailing of sports keel boats as well as training programmes. Mr Gilmour is investigating setting up a branch of the business in Abu Dhabi among other locations.

"Abu Dhabi has the right resources," he says. "It's got a lovely warm sea, it's got great wind which switches on as regular as clockwork. It's got everything you could possibly dream of for a top-rate sailing destination - apart from a critical mass of sailing." Boating plays a major role in the city's development plans. Abu Dhabi will eventually have some 45 marinas, according to its 2030 strategic plan, and in the future there are expected to be about 10,000 leisure boats in the capital. The Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority has asserted it is striving to position the emirate as a "marine leisure destination", although there are some concerns in the sailing community that many of these marinas are aimed at superyacht and power boat owners.

The few existing facilities are the Abu Dhabi Sailing Club for private members, the Abu Dhabi International Marine Sports Club, and Emirates Sailing School, which is only for nationals. "Abu Dhabi has got the top end of the market with these massive boats with huge corporate budgets, but they've got nothing underneath it apart from maybe some dinghies," says Mr Gilmour. He says his company will start by focusing on the local market to put sailing in the capital on course.

But he adds Abu Dhabi has the natural conditions to become the destination of choice for international competitive sailors, as well as for sailing holidays, during the winter season in Europe where hostile climes and rough seas are a deterrent. Sailing, which fits in well with Abu Dhabi's target demographic of high-spending tourists, would be an effective way of attracting more visitors. "If you do want to build up your tourism infrastructure and you've got such a natural asset as the sea and the wind, the unique selling point would be to set yourself up as one of the top sailing destinations in the world," Mr Gilmour says.

"You've got the airlines, you've got the hotels, you've got some marinas. All you've got to do is then get people locally to be skilled up enough to be able to handle professional and non-professional sailors. "You could then get a much bigger influx of tourists to help balance out some of the bigger events you've got like the Volvo Ocean Race and Formula One." But at the moment, even residents find sailing a challenge. With a limited supply of berths, the cost of keeping a vessel in the capital is prohibitive for many.

"It's such an amazing destination that once we've found the technical infrastructure I don't think it will be a problem to get customers over to come to Abu Dhabi to go sailing," says Mr Gilmour. "It could be the number one 'go to' destination for Europe."

While the story was good with a set up in Abu Dhabi, the UK company was suffering and when administrators were appointed in Auigust Additional reading 2012 they found that the directors Mr and Mrs Gilmour owed over 470k GBP to the comapny and the Statement of Affairs prepared by Ms Gilmour has liabilities of over 1.2m GBP with a net deficit of over 800k GBP.

The company moved from Adnminsitartion to Liquiadation with the Liquidator being frustrated in attempts to recover the funds advanced to the Directors for over 5 years whilst the Directors relocate tro Abu Dhabi, UK and finally living a Island live in the Cayman Islands whislt still not being in a position to clear thier debts according to the reports of the Liquidator

How are sailing yachts?

Sailing Motor and yacht charters are very popular. The main propulsion means is the sails, but they also have a machine whose power is not negligible. Inthewild sailing yachts are particularly sophisticated and comply with all safety rules. They also have everything they need for a safe and fun day at sea.

Information-Guided tour

The top of the board, where the occupants sit and enjoy the craft, is called deck, blanket or deck. The front of the Yacht is called bow, while the rear of the hull.

Beginning from the stern we observe a space called a cockpit on each craft. This is where most of the mechanisms are used to operate the Yacht's components. Here we see the wheel in the shape of a wheel, in front of the wheel is the compass and the other instruments for the navigation of the Yacht. To the left and behind the steering wheel, there are seats for the occupants to seat and in the center there is a practical folding table. Below the seats there are balloons, storage areas for anchors, ropes, protective balloons, cleaning items, life yachts, etc.

To the right and to the left you will find two water jets, but two are on the top of the dragon. Witches are needed to regulate ropes, sails.

On a sail Yacht you will be impressed by the quantity and variety of ropes, all of which are useful and are of three kinds: the cages, the mantras, the mosquitoes.

In the middle of the ship we find an elevated area called a spiral. At the front is the sail who passes the mast in the Yacht. On the back of the Yacht is the Yacht where we enter the Yacht. To the right and left in the spiral are the trails for the regulation of the sails. All the entrances (doors, windows) on the Yacht are called hats.

The bow is in front of the canopy. The most important point of the bow is the scythe. An area with a fairly deep depth, where we place the ship's shell (anchor, chain) and the anchor worker.

The Yacht around has strands through which wire ropes, which form the rails, are necessary. They are necessary for the safety of passengers when they move on board.

From the bow to the tread, there are various mechanisms that serve the sails such as winches, wagons, rollers, pulleys, brakes, etc.

On the sails of the Yacht, the sail bowl is called genoa, jack and balloon. While the base cloth is centrally called the top or mast.

Passing the Falca (central door) and descending from the stairs we drive to the lower deck where the cabins, the bath / WC the living room, the dining room, the kitchen and the engine room are installed. Vessels have their volume, a number of cabins that have a double mattress, wardrobes, shelves and many windows for adequate light and ventilation.

Sailing Yachts in Virgin Islands have living spaces such as the living room and the kitchen, which are too many airy and sunny. This is achieved in principle with many windows and secondly with shipbuilding lines that have high superstructures and perimeter glass surfaces.

In the living room, besides the basic amenities, there is also a sound system, VHF, refrigerator, etc. As far as kitchen furniture is concerned, it has such design and mechanisms that make it very practical with sufficient storage space.

The engine room of the vessel is located between the two cabins and under the internal staircase.

Inthewild sailing yachts are equipped with all the necessary for enjoyable sailing excursions. Their good maintenance is one of the company's key assets for safe and safe sailing trips!

Are You Already Fed up With Crowded Beaches?


Also, are you already fed up with crowded beaches? Also, with envy, you are watching the snow-white Virgin Islands Sailing Charters disappearing into the horizon, or the Sailing Motor and yacht charters flying around your beach on the surface to send some juicy curses to their address, after a wave running ashore flushes your blanket with your cell phone? Don't despair! There is nothing easier than to enjoy such a holiday.

The captain's cap, which you see in the harbor drinking coffee on board a beautiful 15-meter yacht with an US flag, does not have to be a millionaire in rent. The opposite is true. The vast majority of Yachts are only rented, while the cost of renting a Yacht per person and day is not significantly different from the price for hotel accommodation at the above-mentioned crowded beach.

On the yacht, however, you have the opportunity to visit places where you will otherwise be difficult to reach. You can be your entire vacation aside from civilization on Virgin Islands, just like visiting ancient towns full of tourists. There is no more beautiful swimming than from the deck of a yacht in crystal water Virgin Islands. You can be in a different place every day to discover a much larger area than your land holiday. Moreover, who wants to ride in a 30-degree heat by car for trips around?

Virgin Islands Sailing Charters are fully equipped with everything you need to live. As a rule, you only need a swimsuit on a yacht, and these are not usually needed. The cabins are mostly double to triple. Each Yacht has one or more toilets with washbasin and shower. There is always a fully equipped kitchenette with gas stove and oven, refrigerator, dishes and everything needed for cooking in the common salon. However, if you cook, or visit picturesque cafes and pubs on the coast, it is up to you. You will often find them on a Virgin island operated only by Inthewild. The standard equipment of the yacht also includes bedding, inflatable Yacht, autopilot, depth gauge, speedometer, GPS satellite navigation, VHF radio, radio - CD player, necessary maps and of course there are also rescue equipment such as Rescue Island, waistcoats, harness or signal rockets.

There are many ways to spend your holiday on the yacht. In summer, family stays predominate, not only because of the summer holidays of our youngest, but also for quiet moderate weather and the sea, which will not cause your precious moments the first time trauma and vigorous rejection of another such holiday. On the contrary, more experienced Inthewild prefer spring and autumn months when "it blows" and the level of adrenaline in the fight against wind and waves can go up. In short, a yacht can come to everyone, just try what they like.

First you need to choose the right yacht. Rented prices vary by Yacht size, Yacht age, and season selected. Furthermore, you need to clarify in what number, how many adults and how many children will take you to the ship and if someone can sleep in the salon or not. Most of the Virgin Islands yacht charters allow 1-2 crew members to sleep in the salon, which, of course, brings a better price per person, but also the need for greater consideration by others.

Our offer is with a US skipper, but if you own a license to drive a Yacht, we will be happy to arrange the Yacht itself.
